"The Weird World Of Eerie Publications"

"The Weird World of Eerie Publications", published by Feral House (2010) introduces new readers to Eerie Publications' horror comic magazines, published between 1965 and 1975, featuring 'ultra-gory' covers.

The book also introduces publisher Myron Fass, and editor Carl Burgos (creator of "The Human Torch" in 1939) who hired comic art greats and unknowns to plagiarize pre-Code comic book art of the 1950's.

Fass, publisher of Eerie Publications and undisputed "King of the One-Shots", printed thousands of magazines from the 1950s to the 1990's on every subject imaginable.

Fass' unorthodox management style horrified his staff, while his magazines both offended and influenced millions.
