...A Twist Of Horror-Mood From Headpress...

…headpress kills me… …Headpress is a publisher of delightfully strange tomes about various weird aspects of pop culture… David Kerekes is the publisher whose introduction to Skywald came in the form of Psycho #15, the Special All-Ghoul Horror Issue… …The impact that Skywald had on him would carry over from his youth into his adult life… …The following 4 titles I have listed below are key publications to seek out, read, and own for anyone interested in “The Skywald Horror-Mood” and the history of the small 1970’s New York horror comic magazine publisher… …All were published by Headpress under the Headpress/Critical Vision imprints with the exception of “The Complete Saga Of The Victims” which was published by Chimera Arts and catalogued and sold/distributed by Headpress… …Rather than list each publication in order of its importance (I’ll let you decide that)… ...I’ll be listing them instead in the order of their publication… …I’ll also be spotlighting each book individually in greater detail in future posts... ...There are still some quantities of “The Complete Illustrated History Of The Skywald-Horror Mood” and “The Complete Saga Of The Victims” available from the publisher directly here... 
...and here…
…”Ghastly Terror” and “Headpress 16” are both out of print but do turn up occasionally on “eBay” and “Amazon” and other online booksellers as well, however, be prepared in some instances to pay more than their original cover price… …Trust me, the quest for all 4 publications is well worth it…
