The Horror Comic Never Dies : A Grisly History, Paperback / softback Book

The Horror Comic Never Dies : A Grisly History Paperback / softback


Horror comics were among the first comic books published--ghastly tales that soon developed an avid young audience, along with a bad reputation.

Parent groups, psychologists, even the U.S. Government joined in a crusade to wipe out the horror comics industry--and they almost succeeded.

Yet the genre survived and flourished, from the 1950s to today. This history covers the tribulations endured by horror comics creators and the broader impact on the comics industry.

The genre's ultimate success helped launch the careers of many of the biggest names in comics.

Their stories and the stories of other key players are included, along with a few surprises.
