Bob Powell was a master 1950s horror cartoonist delineating some of the most imaginative and incredibly drawn comics in the horror comic book genre. His terrifying ghouls were as gruesome as his tantalizing girls were gorgeous! The introduction details Powell”s comics career with extensive and revealing quotes from a recently discovered manuscript about his work penned by Powell himself. The front matter is profusely illustrated with rare ephemera and flawless reproductions of Powell”s original art including unpublished treats! Bob Powell”s Terror prints a coffin full of Powell’s best horror comics stories as chosen by his most ravenous fans. The stories are carefully scanned and reproduced from vintage comics, many of them quite rare and expensive – if you could find them! This beautifully designed, 148-page, library-quality, full-color hardback book is Volume 2 in The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics series. The first volume, still available, was Dick Briefer”s Frankenstein, published last Halloween to great acclaim.
