Microscopic Roman centurions? Elderly ghosts clobbering gangsters? A haunted vintage of French wine? No conceit is too strange for Forbidden Worlds, the playfully bizarre anthology series that hit newsstands in 1951 and continued for 145 outlandish issues Comic-book giants Al Williamson, Wally Wood, Frank Frazetta, and Ogden Whitney helped to illustrate these pre-Comics Code gems
Issues #1 to #4 of the rare and fascinating Forbidden Worlds are now gathered into an archival hardcover, featuring the first in a series of introductory essays by comic-book historian and connoisseur of the obscure, Dan Nadel (Art Out of Time: Unknown Comics Visionaries, 1900-1969)
