Anyone into horror comics will love this book. Covers everything from the dawn of comics thru the 90's (except for the undergrounds). Spends about 50 pages on pre-code, an average of 12 pages on each post-code era. Loaded with color reproductions of covers and sample art. Includes complete list of titles with print run data. Not incredibly in-depth, but a lot of fun to read.

Benton approaches the subject with an appropriate combination of fun and seriousness. The illustrations are excellent and they fairly represent the variety of horror comics available from the late 1940's through today. The most vital chapter to me concerned the EC comics of the 1950's. Benton covers the basics - avid fans will not find a wealth of new information. But this is about as good a primer on horror comic books as you will find. I recommend heartily.

This book is pretty boring, with few interesting parts. The one redeeming point is the chapter dedicated to Tales from the Crypt. E.C. RULES!!! VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!!!
