Crypt of Horror #29 will be a special “pages added” issue, bringing Pre-Code horror fans an extra 20 PAGES of top-flight vintage comic book creepiness, AND it will also ship with not ONE but TWO great covers, one classic Bob Fugitani design and one featuring a still-unidentified (but awesome) Golden Age artist’s ultimate Pre-Code scene (originally used on an issue of Fawcett Comics’ Beware!Terror Tales) featuring a screaming babe running in fear from bats, skulls and a hooded ghost. That’s the BIG NEWS with COH #29. Now, the “same old thing” that’s going on with the latest issue of comicdom’s top Pre-Code horror reprint anthology is a veritable cornucopia of comics horror esoterica. 27 full stories from the rarest of the 1950’s scary titles, like Standard/Nedor’s The Unseen and Out Of The Shadows, Superior Pubs’ Journey Into Fear, Toby Press’ Tales of Horror, Ajax/Farrell, Gilmore, and more. Stories include “Ring of Horror” by Rocke Mastroserio; “Secret Of The Mountain” by Angelo Torres; “When Time Ran Out” by Doug Wildey; “Death Takes A Hand” by Alex Toth and Mike Peppe; “The Ghost Comes Back” by Dick Ayers; “Nightmare” by Harry Lazarus; “The Man Who Said No” by Joe Maneely; “The Secret Of Planet X’, “The Little Things” and “Confederate Girl”, all by Steve Ditko; “Forbidden Journey” by Jack Kirby; “Grim Years” by Manny Stallman; “Dead Planet”, “Corpses From The Sea”, and “Savage Love”, all by Bob Powell; plus “Turnabout”, “Witchcraft”, “Visitors From Space”, “Beware The Bejango”, “The Planet That Wasn’t There”, “Ghost Gallery”, “The Mirror Of Mowgaladi”, “The Hole In The Ground” and more!!. In total, it’s a full 160 pages of rare comic book macabre, in glistening black and white inside of not one but TWO variant color cover designs, for the same low $29.95 price, coming from AC Comics in May, 2016. Don’t miss it.
