About this title


In the 1950s horror comics flourished to the extent that fifty or more different titles could be published in a single month. Later these comics were effectively banned, indicted as a cause of juvenile delinquency'. Prurient imagery incorporating scantily clad women, limb-chopping and trauma to the eye', was often outlawed.

Tracing their development from the grotesque visions of the pre-code' horrors through to the relative sophistication of b&w titles in the sixties and seventies, Ghastly Terror! is an entertaining examination of this most persecuted and popular of comic genres.

About the Author:

Stephen Sennitt is the author of the acclaimed book on horror comics, Ghastly Terror! and the short story collection, Creatures of Clay, which is inspired in part by the Skywald Horror-Mood. He has also written extensively for small press and underground horror zines.
