Two Books Look at Horror Comics


Bookmark and Share

Looks like there’s two new books hitting the market that look at some comic book history.  The Washington Post reports that The Horror!  The Horror! Comic Books the Government Didn’t Want You to Read! and Four Color Fear Forgotten Horror Comics of the 1950’s.

The Horror! The Horror! is written by Jim Trombetta and looks at that genre of comic books and the political shenanigans that surrounded their demise.  The book comes with a DVD of a period TV program that inveighs against the evils of comics.

Greg Sadowski also looks at that time with his book Four Entry Fear.  His book includes more examples of the material that got banned.

Both look like excellent entries for those interested in comic book history.
