In Summer of 1952 Ziff-Davis first published their title named Nightmare. This ran for just one more issue before the company mainly withdrew from the comic book market.

St. John Publications purchased much of the Ziff-Davis comic book property for $50,000, this included Nightmare.

St. John Publications then carried on the sequence numbering with issue #3 published in October 1953. At this point the numbering was altered to continue from their dropped Weird Horrors title with issue #10. The series then ran until issue #13, after which the title was then renamed Amazing Ghost Stories, but retained the sequence numbering.
