Having said all that, this book (Powell's "Terror") might well be Yoe's best outing to date... nice book design work (matching the previous volume, Dick Briefer's Frankenstein (Library of Horror Comics Master)) and a very informative intro depicting Bob Powell's career... Powell died tragically early, and, since he really didn't work on what one would call a defining character, little of his work has remained in print. These characteristics are normally found in Yoe's books, but "Terror" also has a 3-page, self-typed synopsis of Powell's career, written by Powell himself!! A great find, indeed!!
Most of the artwork is what you'd expect...Read more ›
First and foremost there's a great introduction and history to Bob Powell's life and art. It's informative and well worth reading. There are samples in black and white that allow Powell's talent to really shine. In particular I'm thinking of a page from a story "Dig That Grave" that was shelved by Harvey when the Comics Code Authority destroyed the entire genre. There are also two complete stories in black and white that really stand out from all the others because they are printed directly from the original art. The rest of the tales are pale and somewhat flat, scanned from the original aged comic pages, yet with that said, there are some truly bizarre stories well worth reading. 'The Wall of Flesh" is one of the strangest. It's about a Mad Doctor who has a flesh bank, a room with walls of flesh that need to be fed. "Rotting Demons" is another. It's about a couple of modern day treasure hunters who find themselves lost in a swamp where they encounter a band of rotting pirates from yesteryear.Read more ›

Another beautifully designed Yoe volume showcasing an underrated artist of comics' "ghouldon" age! Seven more words, huh? How's three more?Published on June 7, 2013 by Allen Kracalik
