    1. This one was really a mixed bag. Lets start withe bad first. For one thing, going by the title and cover, you'd think this was mostly a horror comic collection, but it's not. There's actually only a few horror stories. There's several Crime comics, which are also listed. There's some jungle and war stories as well. If you were looking for mostly horror comics, you'd be disappointed. There is a full length Jekyll and Hyde story which is good, but the story differs from the book substantially.Next [...]

    2. Wood was in his early twenties when he illustrated the stories collected here, and it's clear that he had a ways to go before attaining the mastery that made him, just a few years later, one of the premiere cartoonists of his day. One of the most fascinating things about them is the subtle stylistic differences between each; sometimes because he was working in tandem with other artists. Other times, it's harder to understand why one story would be unmistakably Wood, however crudely done, and oth [...]

    3. Disappointing. All Wood's 1950s non-EC crime and horror work is something of a hodge-podge, but not much of it (well, to be honest, none of it) is superlative work. Either he wasn't trying very hard, his style hadn't yet gelled, or the reproductions here are poor (or some combination thereof), but there's little of the Wood genius in evidence here, and since the stories are for the most part pretty forgettable, that leaves little to enjoy. Many of the stories don't even really look like Wood art [...]

    4. The very first thing a reader should know about this book, is that there aren't but a few tales of horror in this collection. If you read the introduction, you'll know that this is a compilation of Wood's work done outside of EC.If you're OK with this type of misrepresentation, then I think you'll find plenty to appreciate in this volume, but not enough. I found that I enjoyed the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde story the most, and was only entertained by many of the others, but I wasn't very impressed wi [...]
