Ghosts: Classic Monsters of Pre-Code Horror Comics (Paperback)
Available to ship immediately (not in store)
There's an eerie moan on the midnight wind from just beyond the cemetery gate. A crypt door slowly creaks open, and a strange shape emerges from the darkness within.
It flitters across the cold, foggy night, eyes ablaze with hate-- and now glaring in your direction! You're too paralyzed to move. It's coming towards you... closer... closer... closer...
From the terror team that curdled your blood with Haunted Horror, Zombies, Return of the Zombies, Haunted Love, and Mummies, GHOSTS is the latest and ghastly greatest in the Chilling Archives of Horror Comics collections. Over 240 pages of appalling apparitions, formidable phantoms, shuddery seances, shivery spooks 'n specters, and evil wraiths with much more than just revenge on their murdered minds!
Featuring hair-raising precode '50s horror gems from Alex Toth, John Blummer, Sid Check, Lin Streeter, Ross Andru, Lou Cameron, King Ward, and many more. And be sure to cover your own head while gazing over a ghostly gallery of classic cover creeps!
About the Author
Steve Banes is the editor / co-editor of IDW's Chilling Archives of Horror Comic Books: ZOMBIES, RETURN OF THE ZOMBIES, DEVIL TALES, and MUMMIES, as well as co-host of the bi-monthly HAUNTED HORROR comic series and HAUNTED LOVE miniseries.
“I wanted to also applaud the work of Steve Banes and his creepy co-conspirators, Craig Yoe and Clizia Gussoni. Their latest treasure is Ghosts, another top-notch reprint book from IDW and YOE Books. ...These tales are, on one hand, innocent. On the other hand, they are one step short of grisly. And why wouldn’t they be? Featured artists include a 'murderer’s row' of beloved artists like Russ Heath, Alex Toth, Matt Baker and Ken Bald. ...It’s a wonderful read.” --Pop Culture Squad
