The Ghost Vol. 1

This often unfairly forgotten 11-strong series (of which this volume captures the first seven issues) surely boasted some of the most magnificent covers of any of the EC wannabes of some sixty-plus years ago, despite the artists concerned being a considerable way from being "household names." One of these forgotten masters is Maurice Whitman; just check out the cover for #6! Plus you get EC's very own Jack Kamen regularly popping up inside. This was material that suggested unpleasantness rather than just stepped forward and pulled the old schlock-it-up lever. Collects issues #1-7 (1951 to 1953).
