Description
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)



About the Author
Al Williamson (b. 1931, d, 2010) was a comics artist best known for his work on EC's Weird Science and Weird Fantasy comics titles (and, later, Creepy and Eerie, comics magazines that featured EC alumni). He also adaptedStar Wars into comics, and worked on the newspaper strips Flash Gordon and Secret Agent X-9, both creations of Alex Raymond. He also inked various Marvel superhero comics, and was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2000.

Frank Frazetta has worked for DC Comics, painted covers for Tarzan of the Apes, Battlefield Earth, Famous Funnies, and won the Hugo, World Fantasy, and Spectrum Grandmaster awards. Still one of the most collected fantasy artists in the world, Frank lives in Pennsylvania.
