With Free Comic Book Day occurring this Saturday, I took a look at our graphic library collection (which is all over the place; fiction, humor, young adult, etc.) and remembered this recent collection of great horror comic stories by the terrific artist Jack Davis.
'Tain't The Meat...It's The Humanity And Other Stories Illustrated By Jack Davis is a collection of several stories the artist illustrated for EC Comics' Tales From The Crypt magazine between 1951-55.
Last year Titan Books published The Simon & Kurby Library: Science Fiction, a fantastic collection of comics by the writer/artist team of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.
Finally,nearly two years after I started rereading Edgar Rice Burroughs' Martian novels, and almost a year after posting my review of the tenth installment of the series, Llana of Gathol, here's my review of the the eleventh book, John Carter of Mars.
The first volume to collect artist Russ Manning's work on the Tarzan comic book from the mid sixties, Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan: The Russ Manning Years, is now available from the library. (Click here to reserve our copy.)
