Dark Horse takes on EC Library with “TALES FROM THE CRYPT” and “VAULT OF HORROR” archives!


Dark Horse Comics and founder Mike Richardson have done incredible work preserving and releasing the iconic Warren horror comics CREEPY and EERE in beautiful hardcover editions. So much so, that it’s been a shame they haven’t turned their eye to equally beloved EC horror titles as well. Until now.

Beginning with TALES FROM THE CRYPT Volume 4 this October and VAULT OF HORROR Volume 3 this January, Dark Horse will publish the remainder of the EC Archives with help and guidance from publisher Russ Cochran and Cathy Gaines. “I have admired Mike Richardson and Dark Horse for many years and am very pleased to be working with them to bring the remainder of the EC archives to fans everywhere,” said Cochran.

The press release adds:

Each volume will be digitally recolored, using Marie Severin’s original colors as a guide. TALES FROM THE CRYPT Volume 4 collects issues #35–#40, featuring stories drawn by all-star comic artists Jack Davis, Joe Orlando, Jack Kamen, Graham Ingels, George Evans, Reed Crandall, Bill Elder, and Bernie Krigstein!

TALES FROM THE CRYPT Volume 4 arrives on sale at finer comic shops everywhere for $49.99 on October 30, 2013, just in time for Halloween!
