Media Release -- This September, children will go back to school and the leaves on the trees will turn golden as they greet the first day of fall. IDW Publishing/Yoe Books will proudly interrupt this beautiful time of year with the release of a collection of blood-drenched, spine-cracking tales ripped from the pages of the most demented horror comics ever published in The Worst of Eerie Publications.
"I should have my head examined, letting that maniac Howlett loose to infect everyone with this mind-melting collection of Graphic Gore!" said Craig Yoe.
"After having my book The Weird World of Eerie Publications published in 2010, I was trying to think of how else I could damage the collective minds of the innocent. IDW and Yoe Books have given me the opportunity to carry on the outrage with this revolting tome. My momma always said it was nice to share, so I'm happy to share my sickness! Bon Appétit!" said Mike Howlett
Collected for the first time in a deluxe edition are the incredibly gory, crazy, and infamous Eerie Publications horror comics; comics that really pushed the boundaries of good taste. With scripts pilfered from Pre-Code horror comics, these twisted tales of illustrated terror feature artwork by Dick Ayers, Chic Stone, Domingo Mandrafina, the Iger Shop, and many other unsung masters of the morbid and are presented in glorious, carefully re-mastered black and white. Absolutely not to be missed for those who enjoy the grisly and the lurid.
And what about those nausea-inducing covers? We've got them! A horrid helping of deadly, full-color covers are reproduced for your discomfort and revulsion. Enjoy!
Gratuitous gore! Multi-Monster Madness! Bound Beauties! Oh my! 21 Terror Tales that only Eerie Publications would dare publish… until now.
And don't forget to check out the other chilling and wacky archvial titles from IDW and Yoe Books, Haunted Horror and Weird Love!
