Another great dollar bin find. I don't know the entire back story to this series. These were nice, glossy Mando paper books published in 1983. I'm running on the assumption that Sea Gate was the distributor, perhaps undertaking to get these books into mainstream bookstores. The other two volumes from this series feature Frank Frazetta, so Berni's in very good company. I remember an advertisement for the Frazetta books stating that volumes by both Wrightson and Neal Adams were on the horizon - but obviously this whole enterprise fizzled out before too long. That's too bad, because I'm a sucker for inexpensive, high quality reprint books. This book features an interesting selection of early 70s horror work. As much as I love the Swamp Thing, it's nice to see something else reprinted. Two of the stories are from House of Mystery, and the other two are from Plop!, of all places. The Highlight for me is 'The Gourmet' from Plop! #1. The fine tale (featured on the cover) was written by Steve Skeates, and may be the best EC story published by a company other than EC. This is a great little book, and I highly recommend keeping an eye out for it.
