In the 1950s horror comics flourished to the extent that fifty or more different titles could be published in a single month. Later these comics were effectively banned, indicted as a cause of 'juvenile delinquency'. Prurient imagery incorporating scantily clad women, limb-chopping and 'trauma to the eye', was often outlawed.
Tracing their development from the grotesque visions of the 'pre-code' horrors through to the relative sophistication of b&w titles in the sixties and seventies, Ghastly Terror! is an entertaining examination of this most persecuted and popular of comic genres.
