Tales from the Crypt

(1996)
The Official Archives
An anthology of stories edited by

 
Fans of the original E. C. Comics series of comic books may be thrown off by the photograph on the cover of this Tales from the Crypt history, thinking that it deals only with the television show. Well, you're in for a frightfully good surprise, because more than half of the book centers on the comics series itself. There are four special sections of this book, each of which is worth the price of the whole book: there are biographies of 13 artists from the E. C. stable; glossy, full-color covers for all 105 E. C. horror comics; 4 beautifully reproduced, complete tales in their original form (on creamy white paper stock); and a never-before-seen "Picto-Fiction" story from E. C.'s heyday, illustrated by Jack Davis. All of this and more has been lovingly put together by literary correspondent and columnist, Digby Diehl. Open the vault and relive the experience!

For forty-seven years the Crypt Keeper and Tales from the Crypt have captured the imaginations and scared the wits out of people with their ghostly stories and grisly visions. Here, finally, is the book that looks back fondly on all glorious gore, the ultimate coffin table book that includes:

-the official biography of the Crypt Keeper and the history of EC Horror Comics
-a previously unpublished picto-fiction horror story drawn by Jack Davis
-all 105 Ec Horror Comic covers reproduced in "living" color
-a pictorial "filmography" of the award-winning HBO and Fox Television series featuring credits, synopses, and at least one "terrorific" picture from every episode
-four original (and complete) stories by Jack Davis, Al Feldstein, Graham Ingels, and Jack Kamen reprinted from the actual art and reproduced in color in their original size
-brief biographies and portfolios of the key EC artists
-collectible section highlighting the coolest and most valuable Crypt merchandise

And much more, of corpse, of corpse!
