Ghosts Treasury Edition

I'm still on my horror comic kick and dug up this beauty the other day. I'm a huge fan of the treasury sized comics both DC and Marvel put out back in the 70's. This particular issue, cover dated December 1974-January 1975, features a great Nick Cardy cover and interior art from the likes of Art Saaf, Gerry Talaoc, George Tuska, John Calnan, and many more. The high point of the book is the reprint of the Jim Aparo drawn gem Death's Bridegroom from Ghosts #1. I wish Jim had drawn more horror stories. He was really good at it as evidenced by his great run on the Spectre. He captured the creepy mood of the genre very well. If you like the treasury format, this is a definite must get if you don't already have it.
