And finally False Alarm delivers a lonely limey who pays the price for wanting a simple cup of tea. EEEK! #10 is a digital first comic, meaning it is all new and has never been released in print form. “Jason Paulos is an amazing talent,” says publisher Frank Forte, “he writes and draws almost the entire book.

EEEK! will appeal to fans of classic horror comics of the 70's and 80's but also to a new generation of fans who like to laugh and gag. We hope to reach a worldwide fanbse with the digital release.” EEEK! is available at Comixology, ComicsPlus, Graphicly, Drivethrucomics, MyDigitalComics and Ave-Comics.

http://www.asylumpress.com/titles/retrowood/ ABOUT MIKE VOSBURG Mike Vosburg's comics career began in the 1960s, when as a teenager he started Masquerader, one of the first comic book fanzines. He began working in underground comics in the 1970s, with creations such as Split Screen, written by Tom Veitch. Later in the 1970s and 1980s, Vosburg contributed to horror titles by Western Publishing and Charlton Comics. His story "Mail Order Brides," published in Kitchen Sink Press's Bizarre Sex #3, was in a similar horror/mystery vein. Around this time, Vosburg also did various work for DC Comics and Marvel Comics. He is probably best known for his work from that period on Savage She-Hulk, Sisterhood of Steel, and G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. He also worked on the Valiant Comics' titles Bloodshot and Archer & Armstrong. From 1989-1996, for the TV series Tales from the Crypt, Vosburg illustrated comic book covers designed to look like the original 1950s comics. Originally hired to do concept drawings for the wraparound sequence, Vosburg ended up storyboarding the title segment as well as illustrating almost every cover used in the show's 93 episodes.
