‘Mystic… the most eerie stories ever told!’

Mystic was an American horror-suspense anthology comic published by Marvel’s 1950s iteration, Atlas Comics, from March 1951 and August 1957, lasting sixty-one issues.


Mystic debuted shortly before Atlas’ Strange Tales (Marvel, 1951 series), increasing the company’s science fiction/fantasy/horror line from four to six books. Its contributors included artists Bill Everett and John Severin.


Begun prior to the creation of the comic-book industry’s self-censorship board, the Comics Code Authority, Mystic softened its horror and began sporting the Comics Code seal with issue #37 (May 1955).


Mystic ran until the collapse of American News Company, Atlas’s distributor, which forced Atlas to undergo drastic restructuring and the cancellation of most of its titles.
