Rising from the grave is this ghastly great book featuring the undead from pre-code horror comics! Zombies: The Chilling Archives of Horror Comicspacks in the four-color fear with high quality reprints just like previous Chilling Archives by Yoe Books, such as Dick Briefer's Frankenstein and Bob Powell's Terror

When I cracked open this book I read it cover to cover. These old stories really hold up and can still give you the creepy crawlies. There's just something about reading old horror comics in a dimly lit room all by yourself. Zombies is co-edited by Craig Yoe and Steve Banes. Steve, aka Karswell is no stranger to horror comics as he's been archiving and preserving old horror comics with his fantastic The Horrors of It All blog. His creepy touch is evident in Zombies and also in the new bimonthly horror reprint comic, Haunted Horror!

With Haunted Horror, you now can be just like one of those juvenile delinquents that Wertham warned about! Pick up some pre-code scares in the form of Haunted Horror by IDW/Yoe Books. The first issue came out today just in time to make everyone's Halloween a little bit more spooky!

Take a look at some of these preview panels found inside Haunted Horrors #1!


Now that's some pre-code creepiness! Make your October better and treat yourself to Zombies: The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics Vol. 3 and Haunted Horror #1!
