Author:
Title: NIGHTMARE No. 2
Place Published:
Publisher:Ziff-Davis [Indicia: Approved Comics, Inc.]
Date Published: Fall, 1952
Description:

CGC certified: Good (2.0). Cream to off-white pages.Painted cover by Walter Popp. No story credits. Art: Ed Goldfarb, Lee Ames, Everett Raymond Kinstler. GPAnalysis: No reported sales in this grade. A 3.0 sold for $288 in 2018.

Two years before Universal's' "Creature from the Black Lagoon" popularized marauding green fish-men with gilly muttonchops, Nightmare gave us the Devil from the Deep. Coincidence? Yes, probably. In the 21st century, comic books are Hollywood's idea incubators, but in the pre-Code era, comics were largely beneath the notice of the more respectable branches of the entertainment industry.

A limited edition of 150 softcover and 15 hardcover catalogues is available. 400 lots, fully illustrated. Fun reference, great keepsake. Softcover $30, deluxe hardcover with dust jacket and limitation plate $200. Ten of the 15 hardcovers are pre-ordered and the rest will go quickly, so reserve yours now. To order, contact ivan@pbagalleries.com.

Consignments welcome for PBA's December 2021 Comic Book sale. Top prices for Pre-Code Horror, Golden Age, Silver Age, original art and ephemera. Send inquiries to ivan@pbagalleries.com.
