Comment: I didn't know that ACG's "Adventures into the Unknown" was the first horror comic, but that is what this issue appears to claim on page 24 as they're trumpeting their "no glasses" 3-D technology: "For instance, there was the first all-supernatural comics magazine... 'Adventures Into The Unknown'. Yes, this... the very publication you're now reading... was the forerunner of the entire weird-story trend in comics, and was thus the principal factor in raising comics sales to the highest level of all time." I wonder how much credit they wanted to take just a short time later when "The Seduction of the Innocents" was published and the Comics Code began.
