*Horror 1940-1959: A brace (or perhaps a deuce, to use a more American idiom) of Pre-Code horror classics new in: Atlas’ Spellbound #11, in Fine at £90, with the high-quality standard of artwork and stories one expects from the publisher who, by this time, was in the throes of its horror production line, A lovely copy with firm staples, tight corners, and vivid cover colour. Spellbound’s companion this update is Charlton’s Thing! #11 – no relation to the later Ben Grimm, Thing! was notorious for making up in blood, gore, decapitation and giblets what it may have sometimes lacked in terms of uniform quality of art or story. Rare, infamous, and very much a niche market – if you like this sort of Thing!, then this is the sort of Thing! you like, to paraphrase Miss Brodie. Issue #4 is our new addition, VG at £85. And if you’re wondering why our cover zombie appears to be wearing a Davy Crockett chapeau, you’re not alone.
