Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0313296782, Hardcover)
A comprehensive history of a small, but important, comic book publisher, this work reflects the reading tastes of tens of millions of Americans during the Golden and Silver ages of comics (1934-1970). The earlier Sangor Shop reinvented itself as the American Comics Group and by 1967 had published over one thousand issues. ACG was a microcosm of the larger industry, publishing magazines in every major comic book genre. Best known titles include Herbie and Forbidden Worlds. It was ACG's Adventures into the Unknown that sparked a new genre—horror—which led to the Comics Code Authority, and industry-wide self censorship.
