Atomic Chili

"Atomic Chili: The Illustrated Joe R. Lansdale" by Lansdale et al., (Klaw, ed.) (Mojo Press, 1996) is a collection of previously written stories by Joe R. Lansdale, adapted into comic book form by assorted artists and writers. The book was designed by John Picacio, and featured a cover by Dave Dorman. (Below)

Previous availability

Although a new collection, much of "Atomic Chili"'s content had been previously available in some form. The "Dead in the West" adaptation by Neal Barrett, Jr. and Jack "Jaxon" Jackson had been published by Dark Horse Comics as a two-issue mini-series in 1991. "By Bizarre Hands", "Night They Missed the Horror Show", and "Tight Little Stitches" were also previously published by Dark Horse as the 3-issue "By Bizarre Hands" mini-series (1994).

Three stories had been previously published in collections from Mojo Press: "Trains Not Taken" was included in "Wild West Show" by Richard Klaw (ed.) (1996); "Steel Valentine" appeared in "Weird Business" by Joe R. Lansdale and Richard Klaw (ed.s)) (1995); and "The Grease Trap" had seen print in Mojo's debut title, "Creature Features", by Richard Klaw (ed.) (1994).

"Pilots" and "The Job" originated in this collection.

"Note that" "The Grease Trap" "was never printed as a text story and was originally published as a comic book story."
