MICHAEL H. PRICE'S SOUTHERN-FRIED HOMICIDE
SOUTHERN-FRIED HOMICIDE is an awesome anthology of short comic book stories featuring fact and fictional tales of murder most foul, shocking suspense, and disturbing down home folklore.  Michael H. Prices collaborators include underground comics legend Frank Stack (Adventures of Jesus), humor high prince Mark Martin, Hollywood historian George Turner, Mark Evan Walker, Adrian Martinez (Heavy Metal), Don Mangus, Todd Camp, Dennis Spies, writer John Woolly and the inimitable Spencer Williams, Jr.!  This collection of two-fisted fiction will knock you out!!!
Due to some violence, this book is marked for Mature Readers.
Michael H. Price is an American original and Im proud to be involved with him in producing this volume, the first in a series of illustrated anthologies covering a wide range of genres.  Combine that with some of the finest talent in the comics industry like Frank Stack, Mark Martin, George Turner and others and you have a bona-fide, sure-fire, and most excellent read.  Id recommend it even if I wasnt involved! 
-- Larry Shell
   
FROM MICHAEL H. PRICE
   "SOUTHERN-FRIED HOMICIDE has been a good forty-five years in the making, considering that I first heard many of its stories as a very small child from two grandmothers who, themselves, had heard those yarns as very small children.  One grandmother in particular loved ghost stories -- the kind that are at once scary and funny and she had hundreds of  'em.  The other grandmother was merely scary in her own right.  Each contributed mightily to my appreciation of rural folklore.
   "Other inspirations came from the Southern/Southwestern legacy of crime legends, which I've collected since my schoolboy days.  Crime and folklore go pretty much hand-in-hand, at any rate.
   I hadn't really given much thought to a collection of these until 1996, when all these old stories began reasserting themselves in my memory, practically demanding: 'Write us!'
   "So anyhow, I've always been fond of the comics medium-- and here, I thought, was a chance to retell some favorite old stories with illustrations by many of my favorite artists.  Hence the selection of Frank Stack, Mark Martin, George Turner, Mark Evan Walker, and in future volumes, Timothy Truman, Spain Rodriguez, Justin Green, et al.
   "The early reviews have remarked a likeness between SOUTHERN-FRIED HOMICIDE and the classic E.C. Comics of the '50s.  This is no coincidence, for I grew up reading that good old stuff like CRIME SUSPENSTORIES and TALES FROM THE CRYPT.  But we're also intent on bringing something more to the table than just admiration.  I've often wondered where the E.C.'s would have gone, artistically and thematically, had they not been witch-hunted to death, and in many ways the SOUTHERN-FRIED project is such a conjecture."
--M.H.P.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
 Michael H. Price, an internationally recognized authority on motion pictures, Southern folklore, and the popular culture, was moved to create SOUTHERN-FRIED HOMICIDE as a means of recapturing a collection of ghost stories and crime legends learned from his backwoods grandparents.  Meanwhile, Price is agonizingly close to finishing a massive revision (with Hollywood historian George E. Turner) of his and Turner's classic work of film history, FORGOTTEN HORRORS-- due this winter from Midnight Marquee Press.

Based in Fort Worth since 1980 as an editor, columnist, and critic with the daily Star-Telegram and the Scripps-Howard and New York Times news services, Price recently jumped ship to become president of the Fort Worth Film Festival and director of movie programming for the Sundance Square entertainment district.

Price's movie commentaries appear at the web site http://www.gourmetcinema.com, and every Friday at 11:30 a.m. (Central) on KRLD-Radio, 1080AM, Fort Worth/Dallas.  Price' also is a contributor to the forthcoming Midnight Marquee Christmas Movies book and the same publisher's collection of essays on Vincent Price.  A sequel to SOUTHERN-FRIED HOMICIDE is in the works.
