About the Author
Michael H. Price, alias Michael Aitch Price, is responsible for the FORGOTTEN HORRORS books of indie-film history and criticism, as well as the COMICS FROM THE GONE WORLD series of graphic novels. The two projects merge to bizarre effect in FORGOTTEN HORRORS COMICS & STORIES, which collects the funnybook versions of such FORGOTTEN HORRORS movies as THE MAN FROM PLANET X, DESTINATION MOON, and THE VAMPIRE BAT into a whopping 150 pages of ghastly mirth and hilarious horror. A crowning touch is TOR JOHNSON -- HOLLYWOOD STAR, John Wooley and Bruce McCorkindale's long-out-of-print tale of the beloved wrestler-turned-actor. Jan Alan Henderson joins the lineup with a coda to his DESTINATION MOON chapter in FORGOTTEN HORRORS VOL. 5: THE ATOM AGE.

The scans used are terrible, and the printing is muddy. I could have provided hi-res files to use for this (with caveat that alterations were verboten), so my main reaction to this whole thing is not so much anger as complete bafflement.
The other stories in here have similar re-workings; I don't know if they were in public domain or not, but my main issue is with the alteration of my work. Not kosher, guys.
I've worked with the writer, John Wooley a lot in the past, and always found him to be a great guy; it gives me no pleasure to disparage this project. I tried to contact him directly about all this, but received no response. Thus, I wanted to state publicly here that I had nothing to do with this, and do not recommend it.
This book is hugely entertaining. From the slightly reworked graphics, to the hilarious new dialogue, to the stories themselves - it's the perfect package. Now, granted, it takes a certain kind of person to really "get" all of the Forgotten Horrors books, and this one is no exception. However, if you are one of the lucky ones who understands the appeal of works like this, you'll feel that you've finally found a long-lost friend. If more people knew the genius and passion of Wooley and Price (see their podcast [...], books like these would be legendary. They have a monumental amount of knowledge and love for all things involving old b-movies, comics, and the obscure. I feel that I personally owe them for preserving an invaluable piece of human history, even if its one that most will never know. For me, the Forgotten Horrors series, and especially this book, are not to be missed (I particularly loved The Man from Planet X and Tor Johnson - Hollywood Star).
And to the 1-star reviewer, sounds like an interesting situation, but you should probably relax a little bit. Were it not for people like Wooley and Price, your story and art would be long gone, and no one would ever enjoy it again.
