I have the pleasure of offering one of the most complete Timely/Atlas collections to enter the market. Dr. Tom Lammers has amassed nearly every comic produced by Martin Goodman since 1950 and many more prior to that. This is a process that will take several years to finish with new sales coming out each week. I will be offering several different title each week trying not to inundate the market with twenty issues of the same title at one time. The initial offerings will be mostly Golden Age superhero and horror books, but I am going to include some other types as well. Eventually there will be every genre offered from funny animal to westerns to romance. Atlas produced some of the finest comics during this era and I expect to see quite a bit of competition for some of these books. I will also be designating the Lammers books with TGL in the title since I will continue to sell my inventory on as well. I hope you enjoy seeing these books as much as I have.

This series was one of the first Atlas Horror titles and one of the best. After World War II most superhero comics were experiencing declining sales and began disappearing off the shelves. New trends were emerging with Horror being one of the fastest growing. Pre-code horror books were gory, brutal and dealt with the supernatural featuring demons, vampires, werewolves, zombies and much more. This series has them all.
