Fresh from Denis St. John (’08), The Land of Many Monsters: And Many More Monster Tails is now available from WK Books. This 112-page collection is filled with his short horror comics from the last few years. Stephen R. Bissette (Swamp Thing, penciller) wrote a lengthy and funny foreword.

WK Books is a small-press publisher based in Ohio. They put out the magazines Monster! (a monster-movie magazine) and Weng’s Chop (a cult-cinema magazine), in which Denis St. John, Stephen R. Bissette, and Ian Richardson (’13) (Wendigo) have all appeared over the years.

  • Donna Almendrala, on Amazon: He doesn’t shy away from the grotesque, but stares right in its face…
  • Stephen R. Bissette, from the foreword: The primal stuff is in full view here. . . . From there, Denis eases us all into cozier genre territory. The Goat of Mendes himself entertains a children’s birthday party.
