Tales beyond belief and imagination from this pre-code 1950’s classic title!
Tomb Of Terror ran for 16 issues now collected together in this exclusive 3 volume set.
Each volume contains between 5 – 6 issues digitally enhanced and reprinted together for the very first time. With a introduction by Stephen Jones and illustration by Randy Broecker, each volume will profile some of the leading artists working on the title. Greats such as Moe Marcus, John Giunta and Abe Simon, together with some fine examples of their original artwork
PS has been cranking out these lines of books, and I hope to see stuff like Warfront collected at some point. My wallet sure doesn't, but the heart wants what it wants.
Some of these stories, like The Little People and the Wax Museum from #1, are tales dealing with the cruelty of man over that of any monster. At the end of the day humanity is the scariest thing in the natural or unnatural world. #5's The Rat Man seemed familiar, so I had to consult my files. Sure enough, I had read it before in Craig Yoe's Bob Powell's Terror hardcover. #6's The Survivors! is straight out of the EC science fiction mold.
Praise be PS Artbooks from rescuing these moldering gems from obscurity and bringing them to the masses in relatively affordable, high end hardcovers. My greatest fear is that the history of our artform will be lost to time or be solely in the hands of private collectors. A huge thank you to anyone who has helped out by scanning, lending, or selling their comics to make these books a reality.
