Jack Cole’s horror comics were some of the most grisly, horrifying stories with the most
gut-wrenching art in the history of comics! Jack Cole’s Deadly Horror showcases stories from the 1950s with titles like “Orgy of Death,” “Hangman’s Horror,” “The Corpse That Wouldn’t Die,” “The Killer From Saturn,” and many more spine-tingling tales.
Introduced by Eisner Award-winning comics historian Craig Yoe, this book includes rare art and background material.
WARNING: Anti-comics crusader Dr. Fredric Wertham singled out Jack Cole art as especially harmful to impressionable minds! Jack Cole’s Deadly Horror is not recommended for the faint of heart!
"A handsome new book!"
--Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post
"Craig Yoe has dug up never-published artwork, artifacts, and letters that will bring Herriman to life for the uninitiated while giving fans something new to feast on."
--Chris Nichols, LA Magazine
"Yoe's affection for the subject and its creator is clear from the loving attention to detail found from cover to cover."
