Adventures Into Darkness Vol. 1

The covers alone are worth the price of admission - Alex Toth, Jerry Grandenetti, plus, for fans of DC's My Greatest Adventure, Ruben Moreira - comics just don't come no better than this, folks. Standard Comics did not believe in #1 issues. They were convinced that comics sold better if they appeared to have been around for a while, and therefore they started all their horror titles with #5, each lasting about ten issues of fairly well-done E.C. imitations.

Collects issues #5-9 (August 1952 to April 1953).
