Weirdness from A to Z: Airmale to The Zebra! This large format book of full comic stories follows on the terrific success of Super Weird Heroes: Outrageous But Real!
Here’s a new tome crammed with OMG, WTH, and LOL bizarro heroes of the Golden Age.
Eisner-winner Craig Yoe provides both witty and fascinating context to heroes like Mr. Whiskers (a young actor who dresses like an old geezer), Hip Knox (who has an eye-ball on his chest and what looks like a woo-woo on his belt), and Pat Parker War Nurse (who fights Nazis in a skimpy nurse/superhero costume)! And this is just a small fraction of the Super Weird Heroes. The companion volume, Super Weird Heroes: Outrageous But Real!, featuring Nature Boy, Rainbow Boy, Kangaroo Man, and many others, is available now. You can pre-order it clicking here.
"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."
