Creeping Death from Neptune: The Life and Comics of Basil Wolverton Vol. 1
by Basil Wolverton, edited by Greg Sadowski
304-page full color 8" x 10.5" hardcover • $39.99
"A revolutionary and a genius with a troubled life and a horrific career path, this volume is the first of two that print his 'serious' works as well as detailing his life during the making of them. Looking for a gift for someone who loves the darker side of the history of comics? Look no further." –Menachem Luchins (of Escape Pod Comics), 13th Dimension
"It's remarkable to see art so twisted applied to such vivid pulp tales – almost as though Wolverton was trying his hardest to be Alex Raymond, but couldn't help turning out images to rival Salvador Dalí." – The A.V. Club
