Rare and previously-unreprinted horror comics are of course the order of the day in Crypt of Horror Volume #31, macabre material you will certainly see nowhere else!! A real mixed bag this time around, with a trio of tales from Fawcett’s Strange Stories From Another World: “The Unseen” drawn by Ed McCarty; Sheldon Moldoff’s “The Thing From The Lake”, and “The Dark Mirror”, with art by Ed Waldman; a pair of tales by underrated Star Comics- L. B. Cole’s “The Forbidden Tomb”, and “Reign of Terror”; a trio of classic Steve Ditko stories-“The Little Things”, “The Heritage” and “The Confereate Girl”. Three more stories SO weird we don’t know who wrote or drew them, nor even where they originally appeared- “The Ghoul Strikes”, “Beware The Cat”, and “Secret Of The Haunted Room”; a Mort Meskin gem called “Invisible Line”, and nine more horrifying handfuls drawn by such 1950’s luminaries as Bob Powell, Dick Giordano, Tony DiPreta, George Tuska, Joe Orlando, John Tartaglione and more.
140 pages of great PreCode classics, black and white with color covers, standard comic book size, saddle-stiched, for $29.95.
