    House of Mystery #81-100 Bound Volume (DC, 1958-60). Reading the "strange creature" stories in this great volume is like going back in time to the glory days of seeing sci-fi flicks at the drive-in, and watching horror shows on Saturday late-night TV! These ten-cent treasures are filled with wild stories and fantastic art by Jack Kirby, Mort Meskin, Lee Elias, and others. Highlights include a Negative Man (Doom Patrol) prototype in issue #84, and an Atom prototype story ("The Atom Detective") in #86. Most issues appear in the VG to FN range, with cream to off-white pages that are still supple. All copies were trimmed during the binding process. The title and issue numbers have been embossed on the spine and the name of the former owner is embossed on the front cover, which is bound in an attractive green leather-like material. Overstreet 2005 VG 4.0 value for group = $408.
