“This week already looked to be a big one for IDW Publishing and its imprint, Yoe! Books with the launch of a newly revamped website (http://yoebooks.com), but that turned out to be only the beginning.
First, Mark Hamill tweeted about his love for the imprint, saying “I keep buying books from YoeBooks.com as gifts, then keeping them for myself! Amazing 3D, Popeye, Jetta, Carl Barks, Madhouse – check it out!”
Finally, USA Today chose BOB POWELL’S TERROR, as its number four graphic novel of the year, referring to Eisner winner Craig Yoe as “the comic-book genre’s master archaeologist.”
Bob Powell was a master 1950s horror cartoonist delineating some of the most imaginative and incredibly drawn comics in the horror comic book genre. From terrifying ghouls to tantalizing girls, BOB POWELL’S TERROR collects the best of Powell’s creations.
