Overview

In these pages you�ll find the dark stars you grew up watching: Frankenstein, Dracula, Mr. Hyde, the Phantom, the Hunchback�all the silent ones and the first to find their voices are here, and they�re even presented in roughly the order in which they first appeared on a silver screen. The Haunted House of the �30s gives way to the Werewolf of the �40s, the Monsters of L.A. Creature of the �50s, and so on, all the way up to our favorite modern boogeyman, the Zombie.

In some of these stories, you�ll find an earthly incarnation of a famous namesake: Frankenstein is a patched-together, homeless vet, the Invisible Woman is so ordinary you�d never see her; but some of these familiar friends � Dracula, the Devil, or those seriously creepy Clowns � will be instantly recognizable.
