Chillingly Weird Art of Matt Fox HC


Matt Fox (1906-1988) first gained notoriety for his jarring cover paintings on the pulp magazine Weird Tales from 1943 to 1951. His almost primitive artistry encompassed ghouls, demons, and grotesqueries of all types, evoking a disquieting horror vibe that no one since has ever matched. Fox suffered with chronic pain throughout his life, and that anguish permeated his classic 1950s cover illustrations and his lone story for Chilling Tales, putting them at the top of all pre-code horror comic enthusiasts' want lists. Comic art historian Roger Hill tells Fox's life story, through an informative biographical essay, augmented with an insightful introduction by From the Tomb editor Peter Normanton. This full-color hardcover also showcases his Weird Tales covers and interior illustrations, and a special Atlas Comics gallery with examples of his inking over Gil Kane, Larry Lieber, and others.
