Presenting the Atlas-Seaboard Comics story! "Phoenix!" "Planet of the Vampires!" "The Brute!" "The Destructor!" "Wulf!" It's an in-depth examination of those wonky Atlas-Seaboard comic books of the 1970s, where there's an answer to the question "Did former Marvel Comics publisher Martin Goodman create the short-lived company as an act of revenge against the House of Ideas?" Former editor-in-chief Jeff Rovin is interviewed, as well as many of the imprint's contributors, including Howard Chaykin, Sal Amendola, Larry Hama, Pat Broderick, and Ernie Colon (who gives a new cover)! Plus, all the rarely seen and unpublished artwork you expect from CBA, a complete Atlas-Seaboard checklist, and other surprises! And as a special bonus, hear from Gray Morrow about his work as editor/art director of the outstanding Red Circle comics line in the 1970s (Sorcery, Madhouse, Super Cops)! Join the Age of Atlas!
