“Front row center for some of the most awesomely, brutally theatrical moments in punk rock history…insane amounts of fake blood, studded leather, and devil-locked hair.” —Pitchfork

“A fascinating look-behind-the-curtain at some never-before seen photos from those bygone days”—Noisey/Vice

“Von’s superb eye for composition and drama is undeniable, whether the band was posing or performing, and even in candids.”—Dangerous Minds

“A veritable coffinload of spooktacular shots of punk rock’s creepiest from the ‘Fits to Danzig. Von’s evil eye for imagery was already in full glare when Danzig picked him for the Misfits’s legendary ‘cave’ shoot in upstate New York. Among other amazements, Misery Obscura includes the original contact sheets with Danzig’s handwritten notes. As much a part of the punk rock historical record as Glen E. Friedman’s seminal photobook, Fuck You Heroes, Von’s photography is a lavish slab of horror rock history accompanied by an informative, unassuming, and frequently hilarious running commentary by the monster behind the lens.”—Austin Chronicle

“You’ll find this book to be all the necessary testimony to his tremendous eye”—Lyle Preslar, Minor Threat/Samhain
