Gary Gianni's Monstermen and Other Scary Stories
Gary Gianni (Author)
DescriptionHot off the success of Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea, Gianni's original masterpiece returns in paperback! Includes an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon! Gary Gianni created one of the strangest occult detective teams in comics history: millionaire filmmaker Lawrence St. George and his associate, Benedict, of the venerable guild of Corpus Monstrum. They navigate a peculiar and deadly world plagued by squid pirates, zombie cowboys, abominable snowmen, mustachioed skulls, and fat, flying demons.
Gianni's meticulous and evocative art combined with his haunting but often hilarious writing create a horror comic unlike anything else on the stands. This book also includes classic prose stories by Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, and more, illustrated by Gianni.
"These are (along with a few issues of Stan and Jack's Fantastic Four) my all time favorite comic book stories."--Mike Mignola "Gianni is a master--The MonsterMen leaves no doubt: the dude knows how to rock a comic book page."--Michael Chabon
