Dark Mysteries Vol. 1

How can you go wrong when the first comic of a 24-book series kicks off with an eight-pager from Wallace Wood ("The Curse of the Sea Witch")? True, the work in these books won't win a Pulitzer but, that's more a reflection on the judges than the material. And that's only for starters. Elsewhere there are tales from Joe Orlando, Walter Johnson, Ed Goldfarb, A.C. Hollingsworth, Bill Fraccio, Lou Cameron, John D'Agostino, Tony Tallarico, Harry Harrison and Hy Fleishman and a whole host of other wacked-out-of-their-gourd luminaries. Collects Dark Mysteries #1-6 (June/July 1951 to April/May 1951).
