Overview

Forbidden Worlds was a fantasy comic from the American Comics Group, which won the 1964 Alley Award for Best Regularly Published Fantasy Comic. It published 145 issues between July/Aug. 1951 to Aug. 1967.

Its initial subtitle "Exploring the Supernatural!", debuted in October 1951. Due to pressure from the 1954 Senate subcommittee hearings on the dangers of comic books, the comic changed its title (and focus) to Young Heroes from March 1955 - June/July 1955 (publishing issues #35–37). However, in Aug. 1955, Forbidden Worlds reappeared with (another) issue #35 and the altered subtitle "Stories of Strange Adventure."

This 36-page work of horrific work of art includes the following illustrated horror gems:

1. The Mummy
2. The Devil and Tommy Trent
3. The Buried Curse
4. Vampire of the Deep
Important please read:

This comic is an e-pub document and works ideally with the Color Nook and many other handheld devices. You can read it on a regular black-and-White Nook, but some of the bottom may be clipped; however, you can make adjustments on your Nook to get the optimal experience. This is also true with the color Nook. You should carefully adjust your settings so you can enjoy the full quality of this e-book.

Again, it is with much pride we reintroduce to the world "Forbidden Worlds."
