Crypt of Horror Volume 17
Comicdom’s premiere Pre-Code horror anthology is back, with a special Weird Werewolf volume!! That’s right, hirsute howling horrors are on special this issue, from the stunning Steve Ditko cover right through FIVE shaggy terror tales: “A Silver Bullet For Your Heart” from Joe Simon and Jack Kirby; “Werewolf” (artist unknown), “A Race To Kill” by Mo Marcus, “The Haunt of the Hyena”, and “Were-fiends of Finland”; plus an article on werewolf tales from EC, Atlas, ACG, Harvey and Comic Media. But that’s just the beginning, as there are 16 MORE great full-story reprints, originally seen in such 1950’s horror gems as Tales of Horror, Mister Mystery, Weird Chills, Weird Mysteries, and other long-defunct scarey mags! Stories include “The Beast From The Deep”, “The Survivors”, “Late Date With Death”, “Dead Man’s Escape”, “The Invasion”, “Fear Has A Name”, “12,000 To 1”. “The Edge of Fear”, “The Bog of Evil”, “Terror On TV”, “The Clock Maker”, “Premonintion”, “SSSSHHH” and others, drawn by such luminaries as Ed Goode, Bob Powell, Jerry Grandenetti, Harry Lazarus, Steve Ditko, Al Williamson, Joe Maneely, Joe Certa, John Rosenberger, Eugene Hughes and others. As always, it’s 140 full pages of great vintage comic book horror in one saddle-stitched volume. Standard comic book size, black and while interiors with color covers. Released in 2013.
