I dont think Stanley Morse was trying to imitate the masters of the shock and horror comics - EC. Oh no! He was trying to outdo them in gore, violence and shock value!. With even more murderous head-scratchin and downright alien puzzlement from the likes of Mike Esposito, Ross Andru, Tony Tallarico, Jack Abel, Moe Marcus, Martin Rose, Paul Gattuso, Don Perlin and Walter Palais, combined to make this 1951/52 five-comic set, todays winner. Collects Mister Mysteries #1-5 (September 1951-May 1952).
