PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing adventures all the way through – a publication whose covers evoke the glory days of the pulps in the 30s, but whose contents are pure early 50s comics all the way through! The tales are more adventure than anything else – but have a fair bit of horror and sci fi elements in the narratives – and some of the best stories have a nice touch of humor, which makes the creepy stuff all the more striking by comparison. Art is by a top-shelf list of early 50s talents – Wally Wood, Bernie Krigstein, Murphy Anderson, Ogden Whitney, Alex Schomburg, and others – and the heavy hardcover book brings together six rare issues, all in full color.

IDW Publishing, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 29.99
A beautiful book of graphic imagination – a book that features 60s-styled ads for toys that never existed – but which take us back to the glory days of Matchbox, Big Daddy Roth, and Aurora Monster Models! The artwork is all by Marty Bauman – who would have made a heck of a toy designer back in the day – as he thrills us with full color creations like the Creepy Clutching Hand, Gorilla Rifle, Savage Cedric, Psychedelic Simians, Misterlectro, Robot Troooper, Super-Python 300, Battling Robot, Rick Mason Undercover Triple Agent, The Mighty Zorok, and lots lots more! Each fake toy gets a full color page – like an ad from the back cover of a vintage comic or kids magazine – and the creations are so cool, we really have trouble believing they never really existed! Over 160 pages, hardcover, and full color throughout. Book

Some of the coolest horror comics of the 50s – the legendary Black Cat Mystery from Harvey Publications! Harvey was maybe only second to EC in terms of gore and gritty story content – and these issues are awash in great work from the pre-code years of horror comics – the kind of unbridled, unregulated writing and artwork that left plenty of kids shivering under their covers in the postwar years! The stories can be incredibly creepy at times – often without any sort of happy ending or redemptive plot twist – and the artwork is filled with ghouls, demons, and other supernatural forces – all presented here in great color reproductions of the original valuable comics. This volume features artwork by Joe Certa, Al Eadeh, Don Perlin, Rocco Mastroserio, Bob Powell, Warren Kremer, Manny Stallman, Howard Nostrand, Lee Elias, and others – and stories include "Devil Drums", "My Husband The Cat", "Eternity", "What Was The Discovery", "Insomnia", "Disc Jockey", and more. 256 pages, full color, and hardcover.

One of the amazing horror comics published by Harvey Comics in the pre-code years of the early 50s – and a publication that was noted for its wealth of creepy stories and equally chilling images! Harvey may have been the home to Casper the ghost, but on the horror tip they were something else entirely – publisher of some of the most gruesome material in the years before comics got cleaned up in the mid 50s – with some of the best artists as well! Some of these stories are a clear attempt to copy the more famous style of EC Comics, but the Chamber Of Chills material also has a charm that's all its own – a rough approach to stories, which often leads to wonderfully lurid artwork – handled in this volume by Rudy Palais, Lee Elias, Rocke Mastroserio, Bob Powell, Don Perlin, Al Avison, Howard Nostrand, Jack Abel, and others – in stories that include "The Spider Man", "Vengeful Corpse", "Nightmare Of Doom", "The Living Mummies", "Black Passion", "Terrorvision", and more. 256 pages, full color, and hardcover.

Dark Mysteries promises "eerie adventures" and it definitely lives up to that promise – as the book is filled with very creepy stories from the glory days of postwar horror comics! The publication ran alongside the early days of EC Comics horror, and also features some of that company's artists too – but was always a bit more stark and rough around the edges, which makes the eerie adventures inside seem even more spooky by comparison! There's plenty of skeletons and ghouls within – the kind of dark alley tales that made the world of early 50s America feel like it was about to become a playground for the supernatural. Artwork in this volume is by Wally Wood, Joe Orlando, Lou Cameron, Vince Napoli, Bill Fraccio, Hy Fleishman, and others. Book

A collection of essays on a great range of musical topics from Chuck Eddy – a writer whose work you might know from Creem or The Village Voice – and who covered a surprising amount of music in his decades in publication! The book brings together columns from a four decade stretch that begins in the late 70s – as Eddy pens tight, short pieces on subjects that include the Beastie Boys, Aerosmith, TLC, Public Enemy, country Music, The Urinals, Kanye West, Mayer Hawthorne, Pet Shop Boys, John Hiatt, Motorhead, The Cure, Voivod, and many others – plus side trips on various formats, styles, and subcultures too. 326 pages, softcover, and with dozens of entries!

Brian FinkeHip Hop Honeys (hardcover) ... Book
Powerhouse Books, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99 35.00
Powerhouse Books has given us some great volumes on classic hip hop culture in New York – but this book is more about the contemporary scene, and the world of bling and booty – full color images that resonate very much with the photo on the cover, and which maybe have less of the political mission of other books from the press. The photos were often shot on the set of hip hop videos, and represent some of the tropes that drive that art form on the screen – occasionally commented on by a more candid shot that might catch a model in a moment of boredom – but usually feeling more like photo stills from the production. Full color, hardcover. Book

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A book that's worth it alone for the covers – which are handled by the horror great, LB Cole – and one that also features some pretty amazing contents too! As you might guess from the cover image, Ghostly Weird was one of the more striking titles of the pre-code horror generation – and although the stories aren't always as gritty as Cole's covers, they are really well-done, in a way that nicely bridges 40s adventure with some of the creepier horror that was arising in the early 50s! There's a nice sense of struggle here, and some occasional triumph – served up well in vintage art by Jay Disbrow, Jack Kamen, AC Hollingsworth, Lee Leob, and LB Cole himself. Book

The title's a great one for this creepy horror comic of the 50s – as the stories have this stark, spooky feel that definitely helps you take a journey into fear! The publication was maybe a bit more low-budget than some of its contemporaries – but that also makes some of these stories even more spooky – almost as if the writers and artists were moving quickly, and didn't have time to candy-coat their work – so just threw their offbeat ideas and strange stories on the page as-is! Unlike some of the other volumes in this wonderful batch of books from PS Artbooks, the publication doesn't list the creators – possibly because they're lesser-knowns – but we can say that there's fantastic 50s comic artwork throughout – all in the unbridled pre-code style – with lots of ghouls, bats, skeletons, and other fearsome figures – often mixed with illicit love, crime, and other sordid themes. Hardcover book features seven rare issues of this legendary comic – all in full color too! Book

✨✧ Tony Nourmand & Graham Marsh, edsX-Rated – Adult Movie Posters Of The 60s & 70s (expanded edition) ... Book
Reel Art, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from the glory days of the adult film – hundreds of posters that were used to publicize erotic cinema – often themselves a masterpiece in erotic aesthetics! Given that most of the posters were outside the theater, open to the public, there's a fair bit of hide and seek, teasing-type material here – at a level that's maybe even more creative than the images on the screen, especially when set to the typography and color filters of the late 60s/early 70s print world! The book features all posters in full color, and also intersperses some bits from magazines and other publications too – all at a level that's really playful, reveling in the style of the genre, while also poking a slight bit of fun. Graham Marsh was the art director, and you may know his name from a number of excellent album cover books – and overall, most images are softcore at best, with a small amount of nudity – although there are some heavier images from time to time. 352 pages, hardcover, and in full color.

Pre-code horror from the excellent Standard Publications – one of the smaller companies in the b-grade world of postwar comics – but one who managed to really deliver the goods when it came to creeped-out material like this! Standard always had a great eye for a cover – and would usually follow with internal contents that were equally striking – almost noir-ish tales of folks who wandered down the wrong street, or found themselves in an unusual situation – caught up in worlds of zombies, skeletons, and even giant bats!

We love 50s horror comics – and we especially love Tomb Of Terror – as it's one of the excellent publications from Harvey Comics in the pre-code years – filled with lurid artwork and some incredibly chilling stories! Like some of the other Harvey horror of the period, there's a really unbridled feel to this material – a no holds barred approach that goes into the same ultra-creepy territory as EC Comics, and maybe even a bit beyond – as there's less of the wit of EC, and often hardly any sort of moral to the stories at all. Lots of this work is even creepier than the average horror movie of the time – and the book does a great job of presenting the material with full color reproductions on heavy white paper, wrapped up in a hardcover volume that's a lot easier to read than the ultra-valuable vintage comics themselves. Artwork in this volume is by Warren Kremer, Lee Elias, Abe Simon, Rudy Palais, Bob Powell, Howard Nostrand, John Giunta, and others – and stories include "Colony Of Horror", "Shadows Of Death", "The Eyeless Ones", "Big Joke", and "Communist".

Artwork in this volume is by Manny Stallman, Sid Check, Bob Powell, Lee Elias, Howard Nostrand, Jack Sparling, and others – and stories include "The Dead Planet", "Break-Up", "The Man Germ", "Tag You're It", and "All Keyed Up". 256 pages, full color, and hardcover.

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Unseen has been unseen for decades – a short-lived publication that was part of the big pre-code horror comics boom of the early 50s – but this book brings back vintages issues in all their glory – complete with full color reproductions of all the stories, covers, and vintage ads in the back! The tales within are pretty darn creepy – often with a b-movie stiffness that makes the contents even weirder than if they were written with a more polished hand – backed up by artwork that has a nice sense of midcentury – not entirely modern, but definitely a step forward from the styles of the 40s. This volume features work from top-shelf talents who include Ross Andru, Alex Toth, Jerry Grandenetti, George Roussos, Jack Katz, John Celardo, and Mike Sekowsky. Book

Witches Tales and a whole lot more – a wonderfully creepy assortment of stories from the pre-code horror years of the 50s – a time when anything was possible in the world of comics! Witches Tales was one of a handful of notorious publications from Harvey – who had a brief but stunning run in the horror business, as they turned out some of the most gruesome, most chilling work of the period – material that often matched the legendary EC Comics for its unbridled presentation of the material! The stories often lack any sense of moral or redeeming quality – and often, the characters hardly get any sort of happy ending – which can make these stories incredibly striking, even within a genre that was pretty gripping to begin with. Artists in this volume include John Sink, Rudy Palais, Bob Powell, Manny Stallman, Howard Nostrand, Lee Elias, and others – and stories include "The Puppets That Became Men", "The Forest Of Skeletons", "Tombstones To Tibet", "Green Horror", "Murder Mansion", and more. 288 pages, full color, and hardcover.
