First and foremost there's a great introduction and history to Bob Powell's life and art. It's informative and well worth reading. There are samples in black and white that allow Powell's talent to really shine. In particular I'm thinking of a page from a story "Dig That Grave" that was shelved by Harvey when the Comics Code Authority destroyed the entire genre. There are also two complete stories in black and white that really stand out from all the others because they are printed directly from the original art. The rest of the tales are pale and somewhat flat, scanned from the original aged comic pages, yet with that said, there are some truly bizarre stories well worth reading. 'The Wall of Flesh" is one of the strangest. It's about a Mad Doctor who has a flesh bank, a room with walls of flesh that need to be fed. "Rotting Demons" is another. It's about a couple of modern day treasure hunters who find themselves lost in a swamp where they encounter a band of rotting pirates from yesteryear. Unfortunately most of the stories are short (some are only four pages) and there's little depth of character...but the stories are so unsophisticated and so strange that they're entertaining. Almost everything in this book is from the Harvey publishing company...either Black Cat, Tomb of Terror, Witches Tales or Chamber of Chills and all of these titles are being reprinted with a really top notch reproduction quality by PS Artbooks. If you want to get the full experience of what this era was like outside of the EC classics check out [...] You'll be glad you did.
Powell is such an excellent artist and is more than deserving of a high quality hardback collection of his work. YOE Books does the job nicely. These are terrific editions with heavy bonded paper and quality bindings.
