Author: Michael J. Nelson
A Pop Ink Book by Charles S. Anderson Design Company — From Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to B horror movie icons to The Addams Family and beyond, macabre misfits have thrived in the fertile soil of American modern-age media and pop culture.

Containing more than 200 images from the print and advertising archives of Charles S. Anderson Design Company in combination with a sharply hilarious text by Michael J. Nelson, the main writer and host of the legendary Mystery Science Theater 3000, Goth-icky is a kitsch and campy testament to America's love of horror.

Of the 4 Pop Ink - Mike Nelson collaborations I've read, this one is the 2nd-to-worst. Mike's humor is there, and the art is ok, but not really the same quality as the others, and it just seemed off-target from what I was expecting. Only the first couple pages are anything to do with taking swipes at Goth culture, and the rest are just Halloween clip art and horror comic book illustrations. It is a good book for getting into the Halloween mood, but it just seemed a bit too blah, especially compared to Happy Kitty Bunny Pony. I still recommend it for Halloween art fans and Mike Nelson groupies, but I don't think anyone else would get much from it.
