  • The IDW/Yoe Books release of writer-artist Jack Cole's Deadly Horror is volume four in the publisher's outstanding Chilling Archives of Horror Comics series. (The earlier volumes are devoted to Dick Briefer's Frankenstein; horror stories illustrated by Bob Powell; and a collection of zombie tales.) Cartoon aficionados and historians embrace Jack Cole for three triumphant accomplishments: his Plastic Man stories of the 1940s; the frenzied crime- and horror-comic stories he produced during the late 1940s and early '50s; and the sexy, smashingly well-done cartoons he did for Playboy and other men's magazines later in the 1950s. (He also produced a quirky, well-liked "family" newspaper strip called Betsy and Me.) The IDW volume collects color reprints of 18 Cole horror stories (or perhaps 17; more about that momentarily)that originally appeared in issues of Quality Comics' Web of Evil, a better-than-average pre-Code horror title.

    The tales encompass a wide range of horror variants, including revenge from beyond the grave; murderous extraterrestrials; demons; monsters; self-styled fiends; and, of course, that old devil, the Devil. The stories are brisk and unfailingly amusing, with over-the-top mayhem and plenty of sick humor. Jack Cole's draftsmanship and visual-storytelling ability are bogglingly good. He was essentially a caricaturist with a deep understanding of anatomy and drama. When he drew the adventures of Quality's Plastic Man, he captured the character's boneless quality while maintaining the integrity of the underlying human form. Much of that carries over into Cole's horror work, where fear and desperate action are expressed via contorted faces, and bodies that twist, arch, and bend in emphatically hyperkinetic ways. (The falling figure of a hit-and-run victim in "The Man Who Died Twice" is a marvel of the "pretzel" school of anatomy. The image is nuts, but is clearly rooted in Cole's understanding of how a real body might be twisted at such a moment.)

    Cole's panel arrangement varies from page to page, but is fairly standard. It's what goes on inside the panels, and how the action and composition of one leads naturally into the next, that help put Cole in the horror-comics pantheon. Closeups, frames within frames (such as a leaning figure figuratively pinned between a porch pillar and a doorway), and high- and low-angle shots propel the action like a locomotive. Beautifully spotted black areas work with the compositions to keep readers' eyes moving forward. The overall effect is almost like a demented animated cartoon, or a runaway amusement park ride. When it's all over, you feel pleasurably exhausted.

    As alluded to above, one of the stories, "Death's Highway" (Web of Evil #10, 1954) doesn't appear to be Cole's work. The art is better than competent, but has none of the delirious nature of the collection's other tales. Figures are "realistic" and without the distortion that characterizes Cole. Most setups are at eye level. There's skill here, but no genius. My guess is that another Quality mainstay, Chuck Cuidera, inked "Death's Highway," and possibly penciled it, as well.

    All stories have been digitally cleaned up, with an apparent brightening of some color tones, and crisp-looking captions and word balloons. But the art hasn't been fully restored, which means that color is frequently off-register, and fine details of brushwork are lost. On the other hand, this is a very well-designed book on quality stock, with a case-bound cover and gorgeous endpapers. The sturdy binding is signature-sewn. Given all of that, the publisher's price is considerably lower than you might expect.

    Editor Craig Yoe contributes an illuminating and very well-illustrated overview of Cole's career. A selection of five, full-page Web of Evil covers by Cole is another treat. Cole fans will find the whole package mesmerizing.

  • Jack Cole's often overlooked horror work finally gets the hardcover treatment. The stories hit many of the usual horror themes, and a few unique ones, with many based in the crime genre. Cole brings his own outlook to the idiom; casually violent and gruesome, with kinetic artwork and splash panels/pages that will knock your socks off.

    Offered chronologically, the earlier stories outshine most of the later ones. The best ones are "borrowed" from a couple of "Weird Tales" authors- "Custodian of the Dead" (Henry Kuttner's "Graveyard Rats") and "The Corpse That Wouldn't Die" (Clark Ashton Smith's "The Return of the Sorcerer"). Cole's own stories are pretty original, compared to the mostly ho-hum output of contemporaries like Stan Lee's ATLAS line, and he doesn't try to imitate the EC horror comics like 99% of the rest of the field did. Some of the stories are ludicrous and will make you roll your eyes ("Goddess of Murder" especially), but it's refreshing to see a different take on the comic book horror story.

    Production is generally nice, although many of the panels are colored with a wash of blue or red (common at the time), making it hard to appreciate the art in some instances. But Cole was not served well in most cases by the inkers here anyway. The finished art is not as beautiful as his "Plastic Man" work. The cover gallery gives a nice idea of what Cole was capable of.

    I love the paper the book is printed on- it resembles old comic book paper, but is a nice and heavy stock. The partially-lacquered cover (a current favorite technique in the field, it seems- IDW also did it on the "Best of EC: Artist's Edition" book, and Fantagraphics uses the process too) is bold and grabs the casual observer. I wish the notes were more in-depth, but that may be a result of lack of available information.

    The book is well worth the $24.95 retail tag; at Amazon's cut-rate price it is a no- brainer to pick up.

  • Most of Cole's stories are what I call "hobnoblins and ghost" stories not true horror comics. You see the typical witch,vampire and devil stories along with more than a few psychopathic types thrown in for good measure. One or maybe two stories would be considered true grisly, horror stories that I remember from my childhood. These are not really what I expect when I think of horror. Definitely not gruesome enough.

  • This is a very neat collection of the kind of golden-age pre-code horror stories I loved to read...very colorful and quite articulate. It is also a real delight reading these stories in non-glossy pages format...simulating the feel of early comics. Also eliminates reader glare. I wish all archival golden-age reprints would follow this authentic style...to be read in the way they were intended.The art and stories in this Jack Cole collection can really hold your attention.

  • As a fan of these type of comics and horror this was well worth picking up. They go the extra mile to put this book together, very high qaulity.

  • Great Art, Great Stories, Great Introduction! And very good reproduction.

  • Great care has been taken in these collections of classic pre code horror to present a wide selection of 50's horror that was not in EC Comics. Thank you for not letting these classics fade away!

  • the wild imagination and wacky horror of a comic genius. Nicely bound book, pages of the old comics clear, well worth while.
