EEEK! is a retro-style anthology of all-new horror tales is guaranteed to give you the eeries and the creepies! Taking a pinch of black humour from EC comics and mixing it with the art stylings of House of Mystery and Warren comics, EEEK! blends a heady broth that hits you like a burning incense stick to the retina. Jason Paulos delivers the goods with over 15 tales of revenge, zombies, vampires, ghouls and monsters. Each tale drawn in a different style reminiscent of the B&W horror mags of the 70’s and 80’s. In ‘Deadline of Death’ we witness rival comic artists dabbling with malevolent forces that arrive in the form of a chain smoking goatee wearing Satan. In Lights! Camera! Murder!, A lovesick starlet and a ruthless film director embark on a doomed love affair that ends in pieces! In “Easy Prey” A helpless girl, lost in the wilderness … but is she all that she seems? In “Head Trip” a hippie’s love for music goes horribly wrong. Other titles include “Confessions of a Thrill Killer”, “Like Son, Like Father” , “In Too Deep” and many more. Includes full color section and sketches.

Comics Buyer’s Guide
“Short tales of terror that will send chills down your spine!”
“He (Jason Paulos) captures the look and feel of classic horror comics perfectly, with more than a little Bernie Wrightson in his brushstrokes.”
“Whether you’ve been a lifelong
fan of anthology horror comics or have yet to discover the morbidly magical pleasures found within them, EEEK! cannot be recommended enough. –I can confidently prescribe this book. However, I must warn you, side effects may include: the willies, the creepies, the spookies and the heebie-jeebies!”
