Description: Cursed phantoms and enraged apparitions haunt the pages of "Adventures into the Unknown!" — the first ongoing comics anthology of supernatural horror!
Ah, they were truly the best of times. Forget the rest. Richard Hughes's groundbreaking "Adventures Into The Unknown," the world's first anthology-title boldly stepped where no comicbook had gone before. And now, hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed and hugely popular Harvey Horrors series, PS Artbooks is making them all available again . . . along with ACG's other much-loved titles--and this time in state-of-the-art hardcover volumes containing five to seven issues apiece. This is going to be one hell of a journey: come make it with us as we travel together through some of the most memorable comicbooks of all time.
Weird, Mysterious and Spine-tingling tales featuring Issues 6-10 from August/September 1949 to April/May 1950 of the ACG classic Adventures Into The Unknown. This second volume has been meticulously compiled from the original source material and painstakingly digitally restored.
Unlike many horror comics of the Golden Age, "Adventures Into The Unknown" weathered the public criticism of the early 1950s and survived the aftermath of the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency hearings of April and June 1954 when the comics industry attempted self-regulation with a highly restrictive Comics Code.
