    I really enjoy the Chilling Archives of Horror Comics series. This volume focuses on the early 1950s horror work of Jack Cole, who is more famous for creating Plastic Man. He also did cartoons for Playboy magazine that are fairly well known as well. His horror work isn't as well known but is very good. Almost all 50s horror comics had a slight feel of camp to them, but if you can overlook that there are some decent stories there. However, the art is really the high point of horror comics of that I really enjoy the Chilling Archives of Horror Comics series.

However, the art is really the high point of horror comics of that era, and some good work is showcased in this volume. There's really nothing incredibly original about Golden Age Horror Comics in general, but that's not always a bad thing as it's a genre you probably either love or hate, and I happen to love it. If you enjoy Golden Age horror, or if you are a fan of Cole's work in Plastic Man, this is worth a read.

    Another great collection from Yoe. He's performing a wonderful service by researching and compiling this material, making it available once again. Preserving comics history. Plus, they're fun stories.

    Great fun. A true flash-back to the 1950s with reprints of more than a few of the horror comics created by Jack Cole. A definite recommend if you're into that sort of thing.

    Maybe I have read too many classic comic collections. But these are all pretty standard stories. They do not stand out in any way, except maybe the first story in the collection, which features a grave robber crawling through graves and coffins, it's kind of crazy and fun. But other than the first story, it's all pretty standard. What isn't standard is the art. Jack Cole's abilities as an artists are obscured a lot by the primitive coloring done on these old comics, but any reader can tell that Maybe I have read too many classic comic collections.

    A great little compendium if you love vintage horror comics. The introduction/biography of Cole isn’t the greatest, but the reprints are loads of fun.

    Best horror comics I have read. More suspenseful and less gruesome than some EC comics, with art just as good. Jack Cole was a truly skilled storyteller.
