Selecoes De Terror, Pt. 5

(Continued from Selecoes De Terror, Pt. 4)

SELECOES DE TERROR  41-50

Early issues from Editora Continental / Outubro must be a rare thing.  Very few of them have been posted online in their entirety, few of them turn up for sale online, and it's even difficult to find covers posted.  But I do what I can.

About 2 years in, Continental was hit with a cease-and-decist order from some other publisher who had apparently filed for registration of the name "Continental".  As a result, they changed their name to "Outubro" (October), perhaps because of their emphasis on horror and its connection with the Halloween holiday of that month.

Personally, I wish websites would simply lump any books from Continental / Outubro / Taika together and treat it like the SINGLE publishing company it really is.  It would make things a lot simpler all-around.  I mean, the GCD does it with Timely / Atlas / Marvel!

Many of these have not turned up yet.  But I'm setting this page up for them in any case, for when they do.

ENJOY!
