"In the early 1970s a small New York publishing company produced the ghastliest horror stories in the history of illustrated horror. Lasting only a few years, these comics established themselves as something wholly unique thanks to the editorship of 'ARCHAIC AL' HEWETSON, whose dark and perverse in-house style became known as the HORROR-MOOD." Hewetson here lovingly chronicles the inside story behind the Horror-Mood and its contributors, among them them Ed Fedory, Maelo Cintron, Pablo Marcos, Gene Day, Jesus Duran, Ricardo Villamonte, Dennis Fujitake, Doug Moench, Augustine Funnell, and many others. Includes a wealth of biographical sketches and interviews with many of those involved, as well as essays from some of the Skywald gang, all of it topped off with 19 stories from the long-gone Horror-Mood magazines, Nightmare, Psycho and Scream. (During Skywald's brief heyday some guy named Stephen King was moved to comment that Skywald was "Vital -- constantly moving ahead, breaking new ground, using innovative stories.") Sadly, Al Hewetson did not live to see the book's publication, dying of a massive heart attack on January 6, 2004, the very day he finished his chilling-in-retrospect final piece of writing for the book. This copy signed by Horror-Mood contributor Funnell. 256 pages (including story & title index), lavishly illustrated, terrific wraparound cover by Pablo Marcos. This weighs more than the average book, so additional postage may be required.
