The Complete Web of Horror

 Web of Horror only lasted for three issues, but what a run it was. The black and white horror comic magazine featured the talents of Bernie Wrightson, Jeff Jones, Mike Kaluta, Frank Brunner, Ralph Reese and others.

Stories from these issues have been reprinted across various books collecting the work of the individual artists or later horror comic anthologies. But here is the chance to own a hardcover collection of all three issues PLUS previously unpublished stories from the never published issue #4 and stories destined for the magazine that saw print elsewhere.

There's also informative introductions and historical material.

AND if you pledge $100 (all the money going to pay royalties to the creators and their estates) you get the hardcover book, a slipcase, a bookplate signed by Mike Kaluta, and a set of Web of Horror bookmarks. For a $30 pledge you can get a set of Web of Horror postcards.

The book will be published by Fantagraphics, but only if the money can be raised to pay the royalties. As of this writing there's only seven left of the package that includes the book. Please pledge to this worthwhile project now! Pledge at the link below.

UPDATE: Goal has been met and all books with slipcases and signed bookplate have been sold. Some postcard sets still available. You will be able to purchase the regular book from Fantagraphics in 2023.
