AVAILABLE IN FALL 2016!
Your Nightmares Collected for the First Time!
The beloved horror comic magazine series MONSTERS ATTACK! featured some of the world's greatest comic creators. Many of them were veterans of the fabled EC Comics, Atlas Comics (later Marvel Comics), Charlton Comics and Warren Publishing, including John Severin, Steve Ditko, Alex Toth, Gray Morrow, Gene Colan and Pat Boyette.
In the late 1980s, Mort Todd was Editor-in-Chief of the infamous Cracked magazine and already working with many of the living legends of the comic industry. A fan of creature culture since a kid, Mort was inspired to put out a horror magazine along the lines of Tales from the Crypt, Creepy and Famous Monsters with the awesome talent he assembled. He had launched an incredibly popular humor magazine called Cracked Monster Party, which indicated a 'serious' monster magazine might be successful as well... and it was! Mort wrote many of the stories and as editor crafted the look of the book, a homage to his misspent youth!
Since then, many comic fans have requested that Mort put together a collected edition and now the time is as ripe as a rotted zombie!
The series will be split into two volumes, with a deluxe limited edition hardcover version also available that combines the two volumes. All the material will be heavily annotated with notes about the creation of these comics by editor/writer/artist Mort Todd, Art Director Cliff Mott and contributors including writers John Arcudi, Charles E. Hall, Nick Cuti and others. There will also be rare behind-the-scenes photos, art and other supplemental fun!
