    Volume 1 - 1st printing. "December 1953 to August 1954!" Collects Nightmare (1952 Ziff Davis) #3 and Nightmare (1953 St. John) #10-13. St. John was a mid-sized comics publisher with a varied list of titles, and in June 1952 they joined the horror binge with two titles, Strange Terrors and Weird Horrors. Strange Terrors ended after seven issues, to be replaced by Nightmare #3, picking up from the Ziff-Davis series. However, they then combined the title Nightmare with the numbering from Weird Horrors, so that Weird Horrors #9 and Nightmare #3 were followed by Nightmare #10. And after Nightmare #13 the title was changed to Amazing Ghost Stories for its final three issues. Hardcover, 180 pages, full color. Cover price $59.99.
