From the banned 1950s horror comics that Dr. Fredric Wertham of the U.S. Senate and mothers didn’t want innocent children to devour comes a terrifying and timely anthology of comics of the undead… Zombies. These gruesome mini-masterpieces are hauntingly delineated by some of the Golden Age’s greatest artists: Jack Cole, Bob Powell, Howard Nostrand, Wally Wood, Gene Colan, Lou Cameron, Reed Crandall, and others at their very best. The nightmarish scripts of the unstoppable living dead will make your spine freeze over in terror! Edited and designed by Eisner winner Craig Yoe with an introduction by the host of the popular “The Horrors of It All” vintage comics blog, Steve “Karswell” Banes, Zombies follows in the footsteps of the “Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein” and “Bob Powell’s Terror” as the third not-to-be-missed book in The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics! As with the entire line of Yoe Books, the reproduction techniques employed strive to preserve the look and feel of expensive vintage comics. Painstakingly remastered, enjoy the closest possible recreation of reading these comics when first released.
