Still rough around the edges with Avon reprints and re-drawn panels, the second issue of Skywald's NIGHTMARE still has some good stories, even a few new ones. There's little here to tell, however, of the uniqueness to come. Includes a great pinup of The Creature From the Black Lagoon by Bill Everett.
