To keep the special Halloween contest by Craig Yoe and IDW up here where it belongs, I am showing horror stories all week. If you are from the mainland of the US be sure to enter this contest, because the prizes are fenomenal. These books by Craig are great and they won him the 4th Annual Jerry Bails Award For Excellence in Comics Fandom only this week.
But I do have abone to pick with Craig. I mean, great books. And jack Cole, Bob Powell, they were all deserving of these books. But where is the collection of Howard Nostrand stories? I know most of Nostrand's work for the Harvey horror titles (if not all) have been reprinted quite well by PS Books, but imagine how they would look in Craig's slightly oversized format how well one of his heads would do on those covers. And of course, Craig would be able to do an introduction and then he would have to come to me for some scans of Nostrand's newspaper work and I would get a free sample...
