    So this is a huge collection of comics It certainly has some flaws Let s get the elephant out of the room first of all the decision to print this in the Standard Mammoth Book format size is a mistake, although I m sure it kept the price down It wouldn t be so bad if all the comics were being shot from their original artwork, sans color, but that s a rough expectation for some of the older stories represented here So, along with the small page size, you get stories shot from the colored, newsprin [...]

    This is a HUGE volume of horror comics starting with the 40s and continuing until present day.I m a huge horror comic fan, so it would be hard for me not to like this one The majority of the book is spent on the older precode books, but there are recent selections as well Overall it s not bad I don t know about some of the selections, but I assume some copyright restrictions may have limited the choices at least a little Also, the format itself isn t the best with some stories as the size of th [...]

    I liked this one It is a pretty big collection of old comic books from the mid 40s to today Though they are in black and white, the quality is still good The stories are an interesting blend of monsters, horror, scary situations, and things reminiscent of an episode from The Twilight Zone TO be honest, as a reader today, I did find it kind of amusing to see what some people considered shocking back then They worried kids would go insane if they read some of those comics Then again, I probably wo [...]

    Well, it certainly is mammoth But there are just too many problems with the book to recommend it For starters, all the comics are reproduced in black and white I m sure this was to keep costs down, but the results are often muddy and hard to read The Dunwich Horror adaptation was impossible to read Two of the stories were printed with their pages out of order, which is just careless Where was the copy editor And where was the copy editor for many of the story introductions A few of them bordered [...]

    Finally knuckled down and finished this one that I bought at City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco back in 08 Well I enjoyed the old 1950s horror comic choices, but I question mightily the ones after that These are the best Not by a long shot Some of the storylines didn t make much sense, ended abruptly, and were pretty standard fare I was disappointed that the editors seemed to choose comics from black and white magazines like Eerie and others rather from the classic comic series like Tomb of [...]

    The decision to publish even the colour comics in black and white was probably not the best I thought it was my eyes only, but apparently not I doubt a magnifying glass would have helped much, especially in Dunwich Horror.I was mostly interested in the older ones, but even they weren t exactly the best horror comics of the era The later comics on the other hand were too bare breasts in your face to divert you from the ridiculous story.Worth the read for the pre 1960s section I guess, but not par [...]

    Super awesome ness Horror comics from a wide span of a century Must have for horror comic fans.

    This is another of those 500 page book collections of horror comic stories reprinted in black and white The stories are mostly from publishers other than Marvel and DC and, in my opinion, many of them have horror value than the EC stories that I have read.The book also examines these comics over time and has some historical analysis of the comics of certain years.My main criticism is not the fault of the book itself, but of a few of the stories chosen, in that the printing of the dialogues is d [...]

    I found this very good value for money and a very enjoyable piece of light reading The Comics start from the 1940 s to present Not every comic is a masterpiece, but the nice thing is that they are relatively short, so for every duff one there are three to four good ones The best ones to me are the 1950 to 1970 s ones as they have added nostalgia value used to collect pocket chiller library and Dracula Lives many moons ago and the black and white artwork is nice and atmospheric Reading this has l [...]

    When I strated this book I wasn t impressed It began with older comics that were very dated As I went through the book though I found some of the stories entertaining and still others not as much What really caught me was a story I read originally in Heavy Metal that was drawn and written in a cheap horror comic book I liked Heavy Metal s version better It was about a woman who gets raped by some wretch her husband brings in off the street She births a throng of what looks like sperm gnomes with [...]

    This is well worth the cover price Perhaps the title is a bit unfair the best would have included some of Dikto s, Wood s, Torres s and Grandenetti s work from the Warren magazines Also, there s nothing here from the E.C Comics, which are widely recognized for their superior artistry.That said, it s a good collection that spans quite a lot of history Many of the selections are interesting and I would not have otherwise had a chance to read them.If you like horror comics, this is a must have Be f [...]

    The concept here is great, but the execution is sadly lacking Dock one star for some really questionable recent material hard to find classics would have been preferable and one for three MAJOR printing errors that completely ruin one story the last page is missing and mess up two others Oh well Still a pretty good deal if you can grab it cheap, but overall a serious disappointment.

    Superb collection of stories covering every kind of horror tale, from straightforward monster mashes to psychological terror Tales of crooks recieving their just desserts rub shoulders with unearthly cruelty striking the innocent Excellent artwork and a good commentary from the editor Amazing value for money.

    An odd little collection, the editor clearly has a great love for the comics within, and horror comics in general I found the evolution of what was considering scary and shocking to be fairly interesting.

    Sherlock Holmes
    A decent collection of horror comics for the most part Their variety was good The problem Near the end there are multiple printing mistakes, sometimes cutting off the end of a story That does not make me happy.

    Kind of got fed up with this one I think the black and white print ruined the artwork and thus the impact of the works contained within I will seek my horror comic thrills in full colour from now on.

    A tremendous collection for an amazing price I was very impressed at the strength of the non EC pre code tales I wish there were larger collections of that stuff, but I suspect it would very difficult I m guessing it would largely be a case of scanning books from private collections

    John
    Wild stories, terrible often unreadable reproduction.

    Trinity
    This book covers horror comics from the 1940s to the late 90 s It has so many different styles of artwork and storytelling I had a great time going through it.

    Sarah
    Nice collection with a few duds Of course, only my opinion I liked seeing comics from way back in the day and how styles have morphed through the years Very cool.

    Horror comics Cool

    Quentin
    Weird, wonderful, and cheap

    Stephen
    Unreadable garbage content, poor duplication of originals, I ended up giving mine away nearly unread.

    Blair
    A fine time capsule of lesser known titles, if I do say so myself.

    Michael
