Bob Powell's Terror is Here!

Cult favorite Bob Powell was a master 1950s horror cartoonist delineating some of the most imaginative and incredibly drawn comics in the genre. His terrifying ghouls were as gruesome as his tantalizing girls were gorgeous!

The introduction is by Eisner winner Craig Yoe and details Powell's comics career with extensive and revealing quotes from a recently discovered manuscript about his work penned by Powell himself. The front matter is profusely illustrated with rare ephemera and flawless reproductions of Powell's original art. Bob Powell's Terror prints a generous amount of horror comics stories carefully scanned and reproduced from vintage horror-era comics! This beautifully designed, 148-page, library-quality, full-color hardback book is Volume 2 in The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics series. Available in comic stores NOW, or get your copy online by clicking HERE!

Hah!
Got it already.
Fantastic collection, beautifully printed. Love the pages done from Powell's original artwork.
Even as a horror buff, it shocked me to see: Powell belongs way up there - in the Top Five horror artists ever!

Powell's name sounds really familiar, but I can't recall any of his work. The preview on Amazon looks pretty good, though, so I might have to pick this one up.

Email Yoe Books and ask, that was something Craig was doing through his facebook page, not me.

It sounds like alot of people who pre-ordered the book are receiving notifications from Amazon that it has shipped. The book is actually already available at smarter comic shops as of Nov. 16th. Boy, alot of hard work put into producing these books, so come back and let us know what you think.

ENJOY THE TERROR!
