For nearly two centuries, scholars have wondered how on earth Mary Shelley, a nineteen-year-old girl, was able to conjure one of the most frightening and enduring horror stories of all-time: Frankenstein.
But with the recent discovery of Mary Shelley's secret memoir, the truth is finally revealed: Mary Shelley didn't just write Frankenstein, she lived it. Traveling back to that historic Geneva winter of 1816, Mary, her fiancé Percy, sisters Claire and Fanny, and the celebrated poet Lord Byron, find themselves guests of the eerie Frankenstein Estate. The macabre and frightening events that follow lead Mary to both a gruesome and shocking discovery. Their mysterious host is not at all what they expected, and their intentions will change the course of Mary's life for-ever.

Brought to life by Adam Glass (ROUGH RIDERS, THE NORMALS, THE LOLLIPOP KIDS) and Olivia Cuartero-Briggs (E TV's The Arrangement) with art by Hayden Sherman (COLD WAR, The Few, Wasted Space), Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter is historical fiction at its most (After)shocking!

Small is beautiful and don't let anyone tell you different. Case in point, Toby Press, which also used the imprint Minoan and found fame (of a sort) by getting their knuckles rapped by the EC crew for using Gaines & Co.'s title "Tales of Terror." But they didn't need to pilfer from others with Tales of Horror, the (retitled) magazine's noteworthy homage to the likes of prose stylist John Collier. So take a bow guys, we're in the presence of greatness. Let's all doff our beanies to  Moe Marcus, Ben Brown, Bernard Baily, Frank Giacoia, Rocco Mastroserio, Jack Sparling, Mel Keefer,  Howard Rosenberger, Bill Molno and George Olesen, heroes one and all. Collects Tales of Horror #5-9 (March 1953 to February 1954).
