TALES FROM THE CRYPT is the acknowledged premier horror comic of all time.
The original series suspended publication over fifty years ago. Papercutz has obtained the exclusive rights to revive this frightful franchise and to create all-new TALES FROM THE CRYPT comics, in our full-color digest-sized format. The debut volume features four tales of terror:
"Body of Work," reveals how two nosy and somewhat murderous neighbors discover the shocking inspiration for Jack Kroll's outsider artwork. "Runway Roadkill" presents a behind the scenes look at what is destined to be fashion designer Kimberly Kinselling's final show. "For Serious Collectors Only" proves that even connoisseurs of Japanese action figures should always carefully read the labels-or risk deadly consequences.
"The Tenant" features the fearsome fate of slumlord James Winchell, who, after one of his tenants dies due to his neglect, is forced to live in one of his buildings by a creepy
cemetery. All stories, painfully introduced by the perpetually-punning
GhouLunatics, The Crypt-Keeper, The Old Witch, and the Vault-Keeper

The Crypt-Keeper and friends return in this revival of the classic horror comic. Tales from the Crypt was one of the most popular comics in the 1950s, read by youth as well as adults. Claims that the comics contributed to juvenile delinquency caused the series to cease publication in 1955, after only 30 issues. Ironically, this update is produced by a company known for its comics series for young readers. The format that caused the comics to “murder” the competition has stayed largely the same, with several popular writers and artists collaborating to create a slate of short, shocking tales. Readers will find four stories here, but the two that really “kill” concern a crazy collector of action figures and a devilish designer, who most definitely wears Prada. The stories feature mostly adult characters (from warty and disgusting to fashion-mag types), and the art expertly fits the tales, with colors varying from vibrant to dark, depending on the scene. Appended material includes some series history and a good deal of annoying promotional stuff. Grades 6-8. --Kevin King
