"Before playing bass for Samhain and Danzig, Eerie Von was the unofficial photographer for the Misfits, which means he's been front row center for some of the most awesomely, brutally theatrical moments in punk rock history...insane amounts of fake blood, studded leather, and devil-locked hair."--Pitchfork
"A fascinating look-behind-the-curtain at some never-before seen photos from those bygone days"--Noisey/Vice
"You'll find this book to be all the necessary testimony to his tremendous eye" --Lyle Preslar, Minor Threat/Samhain
"Misery Obscura has an amazing fly-on-the-wall feel that is mesmerizing but unequivocal. He puts me right back in the 1980s, in the same space where the Misfits and Samhain were. Looking at these pics is like having that Misfits backstage pass that I always wanted, for a band that I never got to see live." --Kirk Hammett, Metallica
