FORBIDDEN WORLDS #33 SEPT 1954 HIGH GRADE PRE-CODE HORROR COMIC! LAST PRE-CODE ISSUE BEFORE COMICS CODE CASTRATION CHANGED THIS GREAT TITLE INTO A SOFT SAFER VERSION CHILD-FRIENDLY VERSION.
This is the 33rd issue of American Comics Group's 2nd horror/science fiction title, Forbidden Worlds. They were the first publisher to produce a continuous pre-code horror comic book title, not EC Comics. Al Feldstein used to work for American Comics Group, before he began work for William M. The exterior cover artwork and interior story artwork are excellent--please see my high resolution color scans to gaze upon the lovely deep, rich full color from the forbidden fifties. The front cover is the classic scaly Bride of the Swamp in all of her glory, a rare violent action scene, which was about as far towards violence as American Comics Group ever got.I always thought it was one of their best front covers. THIS COMIC BOOK IS NEARLY SEVENTY YEARS OLD AND IT LOOKS BRAND NEW!
This is an absolutely stunning, high grade 1950's pre-code horror comic--the last pre-code issue! It is graded at VF+.
The 1954 issues are more scarce because the Comics Code hate campaign was going full force, so parents and teachers were burning them in piles--but this one survived in literally perfect condition. It is hard to believe that this comic is a full seventy years old, but it is an original NOT a reprint--the edges have only minimal wear, the staples are firm and tight, the pages are clean, the spine has no detectable wear, the cover is unmarred and has still retained its cover gloss--it looks especially beautiful and is a solid collectible in all respects.This classic 1950s horror comic is still in its original Library of Congress thick Mylar with permanent grade, thickest premium buffer board to preserve its gorgeous, full color exterior cover art and interior clean, smooth pages. I have kept it over thirty years now and hate to have to sell it--but I must. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Comic Books & Memorabilia\Comics\Comics & Graphic Novels".
