Strange Suspense Stories

Strange Suspense Stories

This one says it all: suspense stories that are strange—and that wasn’t just idle talk, like, say, whacked out westerns or mad mysteries; nossir, the yarns to be had in Fawcett’s and later Charlton’s groundbreaker title set a new standard. And, connsidering the line-up, it’s no big surprise: the incomparable Steve Ditko, Vince Alascia, Jim Aparo, Pat Boyette, George Evans, Joe Gill, Frank McLaughlin, Bill Molno, Rocke Mastroserio, Sheldon Moldoff, Charles Nicholas, Denny O'Neil, Joe Shuster, and Steve Skeates . . . hey, let’s face it, eerie fantasy and weird SF had never been so classy.
