    Another beautiful book from Craig Yoe, this one collecting stories drawn by Don Heck for pre-Code horror comics published by Comic Media in the early 1950s. As the introduction by Kelley Jones directly addresses, Heck's reputation as an artist is not great. His work for the early Marvel Comics superhero books suffers by comparison to Kirby and Ditko and he has been unfairly branded as a hack. The stories here do a fine job of correcting that canard. Inking his own work and -- as many of his peers did -- imitating the layout and styles of the dominant EC comics, Heck's art is lively and appropriately horrible. The stories here are not in the same caliber as EC's, but they are a good deal better than some by other publishers of the time, the best of them achieving a certain nightmarish quality. As usual with Yoe's volumes, restoration and reproduction of 55-year old comics is first rate and the overall book design is artistic, complete with a die-cut bullet hole in the head of the cover ghoul. Overall, the right way to reprint comics!
