Horror comics in the United States, 1947–1954

Horror comics are comics (including comic books, graphic novels and manga) dealing with the horror genre.

The area reached a peak in the period after the Second World War but had crashed by the mid-fifties. In recent years horror comics have made a comeback, drawing on horror films, as well as influencing them and other media.
