White On Black-Louis Ravielli-1953

Someone posted this first page on the new Facebook horror comics group yesterday and that inspired me to seek it out to share with you today. A fascinating experiment that could have failed miserably with the less than stellar printing techniques of the day but which instead turned out great!

Here's the splash page the way it really looked before being reversed for printing...just in case you were curious like I was.

I hadn't seen this before. Fascinating, and like you said, risky considering how crappy the printing could get at that time.

What the hell can I say? Atlas comics leading the field again! Atlas Horror simply has not had enough credit!
