Blake Edwards | 54 Hits from Hell

Blake Edwards
54 Hits from Hell
Chicago, USA, Public Collectors, 2018
20 pp., 5.5 in X 8.5", staple-bound
Edition of 238

A slim staple-bound Risograph booklet that ranks every song released during the Glenn Danzig era of The Misfits.

"Sometimes I come across a text—or in this case a series of texts—on the internet and it just looks like a publication waiting to happen. I had that experience as I watched my pal Blake Edwards analyze, critique, and ultimately rank every song by the band The Misfits, one song at a time, over a series of Facebook posts. At some point I asked, "You're going to make a zine from this, right?" He had no original intention of doing so, but liked the idea of turning all 54 posts into a publication so we threw caution to the wind, and made a 'zine together. It was our first collaboration, it happened quickly, it was fun, and Blake even helped out withe collating and stapling. An obvious must for fans of The Misfits, or fans of fans of The Misfits."
- Marc Fischer, Public Collectors
