Bookshop Product information:

Coming from Toby Press just a couple of years shy of SHOWCASE 4 and the whole thing getting turned on its head, the third PS volume of Toby’s TALES OF HORROR (issues 10 through 13, April 1954 to October 1954), includes a bonus comicbook—1953’s debut issue of THE BLACK KNIGHT. This one has just got to be one of the absolute best covers from the Golden/Silver Age . . . And the interiors are pretty nifty, too with the roster of artists and writers including Ben Brown, George Olesen, Chas. Kuhn, Art Helfant, Myron Fass, Ellis Eringer, Sal Trapani, Al Gordon and H.L. Larsen.

This was as good as it got in the halcyon days of comicbook classics.                        

Artists include Ben Brown, George Olesen, Chas. Kuhn, Art Helfant, Myron Fass, Ellis Eringer, Sal Trapani, Al Gordon and H.L. Larsen.  

This third volume features the Toby Press issues of Tales Of Horror 10 - 13 April 1954 to October 1954 plus the bonus issue of 'The Black Knight' issue 1 from 1953

Slipcase Product information:

Small is boo’ful and don’t let nobody tell you different. The case in point-- Toby Press, which also used the imprint Minoan and found fame (of a sort) by getting their knuckles rapped by the EC crew for using Gaines & Co’s title TALES OF TERROR. But they didn’t need to pilfer from others… with TALES OF HORROR (the retitled mag)’s noteworthy homage to the likes of prose stylist John Collier. So take a bow guys—and all fans of fearsome frights—we’re in the presence of greatness. Let’s all doff our beanies to Moe Marcus, Ben Brown, Bernard Baily, Frank Giacoia, Rocco Mastroserio, Jack Sparling, Mel Keefer, Howard Rosenberger, Bill Molno and George Olesen, heroes one and all.                 

Artists include Moe Marcus, Ben Brown, Bernard Baily, Frank Giacoia, Rocco Mastroserio, Jack Sparling, Mel Keefer, Howard Rosenberger, Bill Molno and George Olesen.

This third volume features the Toby Press issues of Tales Of Horror 10 - 13 April 1954 to October 1954 plus the bonus issue of 'The Black Knight' issue 1 from 1953
