Hailed by horror-master Guillermo del Toro and CONAN scribe Timothy Truman, FISHHEAD is a new-century classic among horror comics -- from Rondo Award nominee and FORGOTTEN HORRORS author Michael H. Price, ELLERY QUEEN artist and CASE OF THE BLOOD RED STARS author-illustrator Mark Evan Walker, and co-scenarist Lawrence Adam Shell. Based upon Irvin S. Cobb's classic Southern Gothic. A generous selection of bonus tracks draws from Mike Price's COMICS FROM THE GONE WORLD and SOUTHERN-FRIED HOMICIDE series. These freak-show yarns range from the pre-Code 1950s to the postmodern underground-comix scene of the 1990s, including Price & Walker's carney tales "Bally o' the Beast" and "Earth vs. the Sharktopus." Not to mention Price's historical survey of freaks in cinema and John Wooley & Mike Price's study of the carney film SHE FREAK, resurrected from the pages of FANGORIA magazine. Says Guillermo del Toro of FISHHEAD: "Severe perversity, impregnated with that spooky Southern Gothic Spirit... Moving, grotesque, and unforgiving."
