FRIDAY'S "FORGOTTEN" BOOKS and more: the links to the reviews: 22 February 2019

This week's books, unfairly (or sometimes fairly) neglected, or simply those the reviewers below think you might find of some interest (or, infrequently, you should be warned away from); certainly, most weeks we have a few not at all forgotten titles. Founder Patti Abbott is attending to other business, and I will be taking up the list regularly for at least a while (very glad to see an FFB entry from her this week)...if I've missed your review or someone else's, please let me know in comments...

Thanks, Todd!

You're quite welcome, Jack. You are reminding me of WEIRD WAR TALES of my childhood, warts and ragged skulls and all. And my other favorite mainline comic was the Atlas/Timely reprint horror anthology from Marvel in the same years, TOMB OF DARKNESS.
