Weird Horrors Vol. 2 (Softee)

Featuring two of three covers ever produced from the uniquely talented William Ekgren-St John's criminally overlooked Weird Horrors title from the early 1950's, which also featured a cover style that was a riff on Marvel's later and much-loved Amazing Adult Fantasy, is this month's bona fide excitement. And believe me, you'll have to go a long way to match this second volume, with the creative talents of Bob Forgione, Jim McLaughlin, Edd Ashe, Don Perlin, Joe Kubert, Lou Cameron, Ben Brown, Rudy Palais, Al Tyler, Gus Ricca and John Celardo, many of whom are not household names though their styles deserve for them to be right up there with the very best!

Collects Weird Horrors #6-9 (February-October 1953) and Weird Adventures #10 (July/August 1951).
