31 Days of Halloween - Day 6 - Book

Tom Sutton's Creepy Things edited by Michael Ambrose and Donnie Pitchford. Yeo Books, 2014.

When I was a kid, before I got into superhero comics, I was into the monster and horror comics published by Marvel, DC, and Charlton. I actually found the Charlton ones the most disturbing of the batch, and one of the reasons was the organic art of Tom Sutton.

As part of Yoe Books' The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics series, the volume dedicated to the work of Tom Sutton features some of those stories I fondly remember, and a bunch that I hadn't seen before. There are over a dozen in total and a good introduction to the man and his art by Michael Ambrose, along with a bunch of covers Sutton produced.

This is the perfect comic book anthology for the season. I hope that Tom Sutton gets a volume 2.

Ah, Tom Sutton! I would have loved to see him do Swamp Thing! Severely underrated.
