"The Horror! The Horror!" uncovers a rare treasury of some of the most important and neglected stories in American literature -- the pre-Code horror comics of the 1950s.

These outrageous comic book images, censored by Congress in an infamous televised U.S. Senate subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency in 1954, have rarely been seen since they were first published -- and are revealed once again in all of their eye-popping glory.

Jim Trombetta, in his commentary and informative text, provides a detailed history and context for these stories and their creators, spinning a tale of horror and government censorship as scary as the stories themselves.

Bonus DVD includes "Confidential File," a rare 25-minute TV show that first aired on October 9, 1955, about the "evils" of comic books and their effect on juvenile delinquency is included with the book.
