Gift Guide: 'Four Color Fear: Forgotten Horror Comics of the 1950s'


When I was a kid, EC’s horror comic reprints were easy to come by, and I stocked up.  Not even a creepy, socially-inept comic book guy who liked to hit on 14-year-old me could keep me away.   Nowadays, EC’s books are easy to come by in a myriad of collected editions.  But EC wasn’t the only horror comic around.  Four Color Fear collects lesser-known imprints like Atlas, Trojan, Avon, and Comic Media into a 304 page collection.  In addition to the reprinted comics, each publisher, artist, and writer is honored with extensive biographical background.
