With and introduction by R.L. Stine.
These outrageous comic book images, censored by Congress in an infamous televised U.S. Senate subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency in 1954, have rarely been seen since they were first published—and are revealed once again in all of their eye-popping glory. Jim Trombetta, in his commentary and informative text, provides a detailed history and context for these stories and their creators, spinning a tale of horror and government censorship as scary as the stories themselves.
Featuring: Murphy Anderson, Johnny Craig, Reed Crandall, Jack Davis, Steve Ditko, Bill Everett, Al Feldstein, Frank Kelly Freas, William M. Gaines, Dick Giordano, Fred Guardineer, Russ Heath, Don Heck, Graham Ingels, Sheldon Moldoff, Howard Nostrand, Bob Powell, George Roussos, Marie Severin, Alex Toth, George Tuska, Wallace Wood, Basil Wolverton, and many more.
