Old Zombie Comics @boingboing

December 12, 2012

At BoingBoing: “A fond look at the gruesome zombie comic books of yore” by Mark Frauenfelder is about Zombies: The Chilling Archives of Horror Comics edited by Craig Yoe and Steve Banes.

As you’ll see in the cover gallery below, the Walking Dead is no match for the work of those chain-smoking comic book draftsmen of the 40s and 50s, hunched over angled drawing tables in a midtown sweatshop



I would note that the 1950’s is about the time of inventing modern computers and that the more recent dramatic rise of zombie popularity coincides well with birth of the modern internet.
