Selecoes De Terror, Pt. 3

(Continued from Selecoes De Terror, Pt. 2)

SELECOES DE TERROR  21-30

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!

I'm making an exception in this case because not only does this book actually have the full "SDT" logo on it, but it appears to be the very 1st "DRACULA" comic from this publisher with the character's name in the book's title.  While many different "Almanaques" in later years were all-reprint collections, this giant-size issue may have contained all-NEW material!
