Fantagraphics is embarking on a project to reprint
Marvel Comics' 1950s genre titles - war, crime,
supernatural, funny animal, Western - under its new
Atlas series with the first eight issues of the pre-Code
horror series Adventures Into Terror.
Atlas holds a special place among aficionados of the genre, producing
more horror titles and issues by far, than anyone in the
industry. While the quality of E.C.'s six horror/sci-fi titles was unsurpassed
with their elite cadre of talent, Atlas was the equivalent of
the B-movies studio, churning out anywhere from 8 to 12 different
horror titles a month, giving a wider array of artists, including some
of the best craftsmen of the era, a chance to show off their talents:
in addition to those already mentioned, future volumes will include works by Bill
Everett, John Romita, Bernie Krigstein, Jerry Robinson, Harry Anderson, and Matt
Fox. Stories from Marvel's Atlas line have barely been reprinted.
The Fantagraphics Atlas Comics Library is the first attempt to publish a carefully
curated line of Atlas titles. Our first volume, Adventures Into Terror, includes
a treasure trove of stories drawn by many of the most stylistically accomplished
artists of the Golden Age including George Tuska, Carl Burgos, Mike Sekowsky, Joe
Maneely, Basil Wolverton, and Joe Sinnott. Highlights include Russ Heath's twopart
story "The Brain" from issue #4 and "Return of the Brain" from issue #6; Basil
Wolverton's classic "Where Monsters Dwell" from issue #7; Gene Colan's moody
"House of Horror" in issue #3; and Don Rico's wild layouts are on display from #4's
"The Torture Room." The stories are written firmly in the tradition of the pulpy, perverse,
borderline deranged style that brought Fredric Wertham, the United States
Senate Sub-Committee, and public opinion down like a sledgehammer on comics
in the early '50s.
