Tom Sutton's Creepy Things (IDW / YOE BOOKS)

IN STORES THIS WEEK: Get ready for a mind-bending walk on the weird side with the very best of Tom Sutton's 1970s horror tales for Charlton Comics! Sutton was at his most expressionistic and experimental with the scores of stories he drew for Charlton's "ghost" line, whose titles said it all: Creepy Things, Ghostly Tales, The Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves, and more. Showcased in Tom Sutton's Creepy Things are a full frightful sixteen of Sutton's spooky stories. Unpublished art and more than a dozen of his creepy-crawly covers and many comic pages are faithfully reproduced from rare original artwork! Edited by Michael Ambrose, editor of the insightful Charlton Spotlight magazine, who provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes introduction profusely illustrated with rare art and photos. Dementedly designed by Donnie "Lum and Abner" Pitchford

Awesome.. maybe one day we can get a copy... first of the year and "broke"... ...Thanks for bringing this book to our attention... Tom Sutton was my favorite comic book artist... and he drew such tentacled horrors and ghastly undead..
