Pre-Code Classics: The Unseen Vol. 2
(A) Alex Toth, Art Saaf, Jack Katz, Mike Sekowsky, Rocke Mastroserio, Nick Cardy, Mike Roy, Gene Fawcette, George Tuska
It was the 1950's - the Atomic Age, the Cold War, and just the before the Space Race. Comics books were the education, the entertainment, and, according to some, the downfall of America. What a great time! We loved to be scared - still do, it seems - from the comfort of our own home, secure in the knowledge that there's no real danger (or so we think). Nothing could match the imagination, the surprise, and the chilling-of-your-spine like the great horror comics of yesteryear. Who Is Next? #5, is a suspense one-shot and features a town terrorized by a serial killer. Collects The Unseen #11-15 (August 1953 to July 1954) and Who Is Next? #5 (January 1953).
