Contest - The King Of Pre-Code Horror

41 posts in this topic

While EC (justifiably) gets the main shine for pre-code horror, 4 publishers published more pre-code horror books than EC. Name those four publishers in order of output, from highest to lowest, and win a fabulous prize!

 

A VG copy of the pre-code horror Uncanny Tales #28.

Atlas would definitely have to be #1 with Adventures into Terror, Adventures into Weird Worlds and Uncanny Tales to name a few.

#2-4?....hmmm

 

How about:

 

2) ACG would have to be a close #2 (Adventures into the Unknown lasted a long time)

3) Harvey

4) Avon

 

How's that?

I don't even think DC published ANY horror comics, so I know they are right out, and Fawcett and Quality each only had a couple of titles.

 

My other considerations for 3rd-4th place were/are:

Ace, Comic Media, Farrell, Star, and Superior

They had 3 titles - House Of Mystery, Sensation Comics and Sensation Mystery (continuation of Sensation Comics). But they are well out of the running.

Arty's new try did it! He transposed Harvey and Ace! The result?

 

Atlas (399 issues)

ACG (123 issues)

Ace (98 issues - or 97 as the existence of Hand Of Fate #26 is questionable)

Harvey (96 issues)

 

Phew!

 

Arty - PM a mailing address for the book. (FINLAND!!!!!!!!??????? OMG!) grin.gif
