Although the story material of many of the tales in Four Color Fear may not hold up so well these days, the entire package is stellar. These horror comics from the 50s come from magazines no one remembers anymore, mostly because they weren't around for very long. Yet they stood toe-to-toe with the giant of horror comics, EC (which have been reprinted to death - no pun intended).

The digital restoration simply looks magnificent. As an added bonus, Benson has added background material on the writers and artists, a brief history of horror comics and an impressive gallery of cover art. If you're into horror comics at all, this is one title you won't want to be without. Bring on the second edition!
