Harvey published this little oddity in 1981. I don't think that I've ever seen a copy of it - and I'm pretty sure that I would remember that cover. Seemingly out of nowhere, Harvey decided that this would be a good time to reprint a bunch of old Jack Kirby stories from the late 50s (Marvel and DC had the same epiphany, only a decade earlier). From what I can tell, it's got a mixture of pre-Code and post-Code horror stories from titles such as Witches Tales (one of my favourites), Alarming Tales and even Race for the Moon, so there's probably Bob Powell and Howard Nostrand in there too - maybe even Rudy Palais if we're lucky. The cover is pure kookiness (I definitely recognize that flying chair from Alarming Tales #1). I know that Kirby's artwork likely doesn't translate well to the digest page, but I really love Harvey horror, and we're not likely see it reprinted elsewhere. Lone Star has a FN copy for $8.40 right now. That's a bit steep for me, especially since I'm trying to cut back but it's soooooo tempting. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for a better deal.
