Whole Bloody Mess: FantaCo to Publish Eerie Publications Complete Covers


On the 60s and 70s newsstands, the notorious Eerie Publications magazine covers shocked petrified comic readers everywhere with garish sideshow covers depicting torture, and gore.

Howlett is also the author of The Weird World of Eerie Publications: Comic Gore That Warped Millions of Young Minds, The Worst of Eerie Publications (Chilling Archives of Horror Comics!) and The Weird Indexes of Eerie Publications.



The book will be 240 pages (softcover $39.95, smyth sewn hardcover $59.99), and is scheduled for release March 2021. FantaCo is now accepting preorders serialized and numbered with an exclusive set of ten Eerie Publications trading cards for a limited time  at www.fantaco.net
