    1. This collection of Pre-Code horror comics from the 1950s is really everything you'd expect. Silly, scary, creepy, macabre, but most of all FUN. If I have any complaint about comics from the time period, it's that they are just too wordy. They almost read like illustrated stories rather than comics. I suppose writers were still fighting to find the right balance of words and pictures back then. (Although the really top creators already were there of course.)Overall its a nice collection of horror [...]

    2. Voy a hablar de los cómic como una colección, hablar de cada uno de ellos implicaría que recordara el nombre de cada una y puesn como 60 y lo leí en digital, no tome notasdigamos que me limite a disfrutarlo.Estas historias son bastante buenas, no son obras maestras pero realmente son muuuuy entretenidas. Todos los cómics son creados en la década del 50 por lo que no son tan morbidos como las cosas que encontramos en la actualidad pero sí que se entiende porque lo fueron en su momento. Aba [...]

Don't fucking punch old ladies in the face, no matter how much you want to smoke out of her shrunken skull-pipe.5. Don't kill insects. Ever.6. If a Tibetan Lama ever lets you hang out at his temple, don't try to take his priestess friend back to wherever you live, just because she's a hottie. Also, don't fucking murder [...]

    4. This collection of pre-code horror comics from the early 1950's was a real treat to read. The tales range from quietly comic to fiendishly evil. There is something for everyone in here from ghost stories to Lovecraftian horror to psycho killers and voodoo - pretty much all the tropes are here.I appreciate the opportunity to see what all the fuss was about as I was aware of the moral panic in the 1950's in the United States over the content of comics and what children were accessing. I initially [...]

    5. The artwork and presentation of the book was great, but my biggest issue was the redundant plot lines. For the majority of the stories there was a cliched story of revenge for a murder. This was enjoyable the first few times, but after a while it became stale.
