More About The Horror! the Horror! by Jim Trombetta; R. L. Stine
 
 
 
Overview

"The Horror The Horror " uncovers a rare treasury of some of the most important and neglected stories in American literature--the pre-Code horror comics of the 1950s. These outrageous comic book images, censored by Congress in an infamous televised U.S. Senate subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency in 1954, have rarely been seen since they were first published--and are revealed once again in all of their eye-popping glory. Jim Trombetta, in his commentary and informative text, provides a detailed history and context for these stories and their creators, spinning a tale of horror and government censorship as scary as the stories themselves.
