Slithering Scares… Dangerous Snake-Women… Cold-Blooded Killings… Snake Tales, edited by Mike Howlett along with Steve Banes, scours the snake-pit of Pre-Code horror to bring you the weirdest stories of serpentine thrills, guaranteed to raise your blood-pressure (and maybe an eyebrow). Hissing horror from the likes of Rudy Palais, Lou Cameron, and Marty Elkin and other masters of comic book fear. Crawling your way in full color.
"These misunderstood serpents in Snake Tales will envenomate you with an unhealthy dose of 1940s and 1950s Pre-Code comic book horror!"
--Dr. Frank T. Burbrink, Snake Tales foreword writer and Curator of Reptiles and Amphibians at the American Museum of Natural History.
"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."
