    Volume 1 - 1st printing. "June/July 1951 to April/May 1951!" Collects Dark Mysteries (1951-1955) #1-6.

    How can you go wrong when the first comic of a 24-book series kicks off with an eight-pager from Wallace Wood ("The Curse of the Sea Witch")? True, the work in these books won't win a Pulitzer but, that's more a reflection on the judges than the material. And that's only for starters. Elsewhere there are tales from Joe Orlando, Walter Johnson, Ed Goldfarb, A.C. Hollingsworth, Bill Fraccio, Lou Cameron, John D'Agostino, Tony Tallarico, Harry Harrison and Hy Fleishman and a whole host of other wacked-out-of-their-gourd luminaries.

    Hardcover, 216 pages, full color. Cover price $49.99.

    You could be forgiven for thinking, hey, they must have run out, right? They must have exhausted all the good stuff by now with the ACG titles pretty near-on gone, along with Planet, Jet Power, all the Harvey titles, Tom Corbett, The Heap, Rulah, Strange Suspense, and who knows what else. Yeah, you'da thunk it, but check this out! A second collection featuring issues 7 through 12 of Dark Mysteries boasting yarns from Joe Orlando, Walter Johnson, Ed Goldfarb, A.C. Hollingsworth, Bill Fraccio, Lou Cameron, John D'Agostino, Tony Tallarico, Harry Harrison, and Hy Fleishman and a whole host of other wacked-out-of-their-gourd luminaries!
