Atlas was the most prolific publisher of pre-Code horror, producing over 25% of all pre-Code horror comics, more than the next three most prolific companies combined. EC is often credited with kickstarting the horror trend in comics, but Atlas started publishing horror months before EC, with three ongoing horror mags on the stands in mid-1949, when EC had none. ACG's Adventures into the Unknown, however, was the first ongoing horror title.
