Yoe And IDW Lift The Ban On “Zombies”!

The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics open for another epic dose of terror May 30th!

[Zombies Cover]San Diego, CA (May 29, 2012) – In the shuffling, deranged footsteps of Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein and Bob 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 away from 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!

ZOMBIES ($21.99, 148 pages, hard cover, full color) will be available in comic book stores May 29, 2012. ISBN 978-1-61377-213-3.

It’s was a pretty quiet Saturday, but you guys seem to love your Boom! Studios.  Traffic spiked as people devoured two previews.  So, which series should I start reading?  I regularly read Incorruptible and Irredeemable, so those are out, but what else?  Darkwing Duck, The Amory Wars, Cthulhu, 28 Days Later? While you contemplate that, here’s the news you might have missed.
