YOE AND IDW LIFT THE BAN ON “ZOMBIES”!The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics open for another
epic dose of terror May 30th!
San Diego, CA (May 29, 2012) – In the shuffling, deranged footsteps of Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein andBob Powell’s Terror comes a thrilling, spine-tingling collection of classic, taboo horror comics. Hitting shelves with a vengeance tomorrow, IDW Publishing and Yoe Books are proud to present ZOMBIES!
It’s difficult to imagine an era where work from comics titans like Wally Wood, Gene Colan, Bob Powell, Reed Crandall, Jack Cole, and Lou Cameron was kept awayfrom readers, but these 1950’s zombie tales were so terrifying, parents and politicians the nation over made sure they were banned!
Conjured back to print by Eisner-winning Editor and designer Craig Yoe, these classic, lost tales are being reproduced in astonishing detail in a beautiful hardcover edition that belies the unstoppable, macabre forces within!
Complete with an introduction by the book’s co-Editor Steve “Karswell” Banes, host of the popular “The Horrors of It All” vintage comics blog, ZOMBIES is a must-own tome for lovers of the undead!
Craig Yoe is available for convention appearances and interviews with the press in regards to this and his other books. Find Yoe Books’ online at http://yoebooks.com and http://www.youtube.com/theyoetube.
