American Comics Group (ACG) was a small publisher during the Golden and Silver Age of comic books that published several well-remembered characters and titles. The company existed from 1943 to 1967.
The company evolved out of a company owned by Benjamin W. Sangor. In the mid-1930s, Sangor and Richard E. Hughes began to produce a short-lived pre-packaged comics supplement for newspapers. In 1939, the Sangor Shop (as it was informerly known) began producing comics for Sangor's son-in-law Ned L. Pines. The Sangor Shop produced characters and stories The Black Terror, Pyroman, and Fighting Yank for Pines' Nedor Comics and produced most of the comics for Pines until 1945.
In 1943, they started to publish their own work, and, by 1948, they published that work under the name of American Comics Group. Their titles were typical of the times, including horror, crime, mystery, funny animals, and the like. Almost all stories after 1957 were written by editor Richard E. Hughes under a variety of pseudonyms. The big claim to fame was when they created the character of Herbie (Herbie Popnecker) for their Forbidden Worlds title (in issue #73, Dec. 1958). He would later get his own title and be turned into a "super hero" called the "Fat Fury". ACG would create other super-heroes in 1965 like Magicman starting in Forbidden Worlds #125, Nemesis in Adventures into the Unknown (starting with #154), and John Force, Magic Agent in his own title in 1962, then later in Unknown Worlds (#35, 36, 48, 50, 52, 56), with a few stories in Forbidden Worlds (#124, 145) and Adventures into the Unknown (#153, 157).
A distinctive trait of the company's horror comics (and of their supernatural
stories, such as Magicman) was that all ghosts were invariably colored light
