Colan art (3/52)
Second City Collection
In the time period after the creation of the Comics Code Authority publishers had to obey a set of rules, which had basically defanged the industy. EC and other exploitation imprints were hobbled and the entire comic book business seemed on the brink of extinction. It was at this point that struggling companies like Atlas decided to slyly maneuver around the restrictions of the CCA and put out a glut of somewhat tame horror-themed comics in hopes of capturing the audience who suddenly had nowhere to turn for their cheap thrills. The artists that labored away on these shockers were unwittingly molding the style that would graduate to fruition once the super-hero craze reignited in the Silver Age. Mystery Tales #1 was ground zero for this interesting era, with submissions from Paul Maneely, Gene Colan, and Paul Reinman, this is a solid post-code horror comic classic.

Ogden Whitney, who submitted "The Crawling Horror" story to this issue of Mystery Tales was best known for his creation, Herbie Popnecker, a rotund super-hero spoof that went on to become a popular cult character. It was these unsung heroes that toiled away in relative obscurity during these low days of the comic industry who were responsible for churning out titles like Mystery Tales for Atlas, as they hung on by their fingernails until their luck would change for the better. Some of the other tales of terror in this book are "This Corpse is Mine", "The Rat Race", and "He Went for a Train-Ride".

classic Everett cover
Second City Collection
Mystery Tales #40 was prominently featured on the hit TV series "Lost", making that issue quite possibly the most-famous of the run. Few fans of that series might be aware that issue #9 of Mystery Tales features a story in its back pages named "Lost!", which concerns hidden loot and a couple who are trapped in a cave for two decades, one can't help but think there may be something to this strange connection between the show and the comic. Other spooky stories in this comic include the tales "The Specimen", "Hunger", "Ashes to Ashes", and "The Man in the Morgue", add in the classic Bill Everett cover and you have a nifty little book filled with things that go bump in the night, plus that mysterious "Lost/Lost!" thing.
