Special Notes: As always, this issue of Crypt of Horror brings fans and enthusiasts a selection of the best, most interesting, most obscure and esoteric comic book stories of the macabre, from the heyday of the genre, the 1950’s- as compiled by that renowned expert on comic book history, AC Comics publisher, Bill Black. And, as a special promotion for this issue, one out of every three copies of Crypt of Horror Volume 14 will be signed and numbered by Bill Black, at no additional charge. That means that any retailer who orders at least three copies of COH 14 is guaranteed of getting one autographed copy out of the three. The number of autographed copies will, of course be a function of the total number of copies sold, so at this juncture we cannot say what the quantity of signed/numbered copies will be, but chances are that the number will be low, making these signed copies a rare and valuable collector’s items.
