Tales from the Crypt Sells Out!

New stories of horror in the EC Comics tradition prove monstrously
popular.

Papercutz’ Tales from the Crypt #1, which revived the legendary EC
Comics horror comic book, has sold out its entire 25,000-copy print
run.

The issue, which shipped in June, is the first of an ongoing,
bi-monthly series from the publisher of the popular Nancy Drew and
Hardy Boys comics.  The issue includes:

• “Artistic License,” by horror author Marc Bilgrey (H.P.
Lovecraft’s Magazine of Horror) and Mr. Exes (Abra Cadaver).  Two nosy, somewhat murderous neighbors discover the shocking inspiration for Jack
Kroll’s outsider artwork.

 • “For Serious Collectors Only,” by Rob Vollmar (Bluesman) and
Steve Mannion (Batman). Thomas Donalley—a middle-aged action-figure
collector who lives in his mom’s basement—goes a little too far to get  an
ultra-rare Japanese figure.

 • Introductory pages featuring the GhouLunatics by writer Jim
Salicrup and artist Rick Parker (Beavis and Butt-Head).

 • Cover by award-winning artist Kyle Baker (Birth of a Nation,
Plastic Man, Why I Hate Saturn).

Future issues will include stories by Fred Van Lente (Marvel
Adventures), Xeric Grant winner Neil Kleid, Stefan Petrucha (The Shadow
of Frankenstein, Papercutz’ NANCY DREW), Don McGregor (Zorro), Sho
Murase (NANCY DREW), and other great talents.  Each issue is 48
full-color pages for an affordable $3.95.

Thanks for the heads up/\.

Cool, no prob! Yeah, they stay true to the 50's series, but some of the artwork, I'll admit, I'm not a fan of some of the new styles they're trying out, but it will probably grow on me. I'll keep collecting them. Hopefully it will be around for awhile... <^>
