The inside story of a uniquely influential horror comic publisher from the 1970s. Nightmare—Psycho—Scream—Hell-Rider—The Crime Machine In the early 1970s a small New York publishing company produced the ghastliest horror stories in the history of illustrated horror… Lasting only a few years, these comics established themselves as something wholly unique thanks to the editorship of ‘Archaic Al’ Hewetson, whose dark and perverse in-house style became known as the HORRORMOOD. With many enduring characters and stories—such as The Human Gargoyles, The Saga of the Victims, The Heap, the Shoggoth series, Lady Satan, Nosferatu, Monster Monster and Hell-Rider—Skywald continues to stand the ravages of time more than a quarter of a century later. Long overdue, this book is the first to chronicle the amazing publishing house, its influence and its top writers and artists. From his early years with Marvel through to Warren and HP Lovecraft, Alan Hewetson tells the complete, behind-the-scenes story along with all the Skywald writers and artists, special features and unpublished artwork—plus NINETEEN ORIGINAL HORROR-MOOD STORIES to assault your Primal Spinal !
