Overview

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

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6 Up -"Tales from the Crypt" returns to comic-book format after almost 50 years. Not to be confused with the television show of the early a'90s, which was adult-oriented and far more gore-filled, this title is from the publishers of "The Hardy Boys" and "Nancy Drew" graphic novels, and is similarly oriented for a broader age range. The four tales of terror, or at least mild alarm, are introduced by the classic cast of Crypt-Keeper, Old Witch, and Vault-Keeper, and each one has a different author and illustrator and a distinctive style. Older readers and fans of horror should enjoy the gritty artwork of the two middle tales and the mature-themed "The Tenant!," a tale about the mistreatment of, fittingly enough, tenants. Younger readers will enjoy the cartoonlike quality of the illustrations in the introduction and in the first and final installments. The collection ends with "Runway Roadkill," which pays homage to The Devil Wears Prada with a self-centered designer who kills for fashion and is illustrated in a style reminiscent of Kim Possible . Each tale has a moralistic ending, and while the authors arena't afraid to knock off characters, the visual horror is limited to zombies. Back matter includes a brief history of the original "Tales from the Crypt" series. A good choice for reluctant readers.-Cara von Wrangel Kinsey, New York Public Library
