After igniting the horror craze in comic books with the publication of Adventures Into The Unknown in 1948, ACG stoked the fire with the publication of seven additional horror titles. Of these, four were published before the censorship of the Comics Code Authority was imposed; three were released in the 1960s.
Forbidden Worlds premiered in 1951 and ran for 145 issues until 1967.
