TALES FROM THE CRYPT #2 FEATURES TWO STORIES FROM LEGENDARY COMICS ARTIST BERNIE WRIGHTSON “LOST CLASSICS” FROM LATE CREATOR APPEAR IN COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIMEfrom the official press release . . . . . . .NEW YORK - (March 21, 2017) - The entire comics industry was saddened to learn of the passing of legendary comics artist Bernie Wrightson this past weekend. Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
From the American Mythology press release . . .[Baltimore, Maryland] – One of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ greatest fictional realms is set to make its comic book return in a way that is sure to thrill fans of the fantasy author’s classic works. Pellucidar returns to comics this summer with a new chapter to this timeless classic that explores the idea of a world buried deep within our own. Sometimes the greatest mysteries are the ones within. Under special license from Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., the denizens of Pellucidar, the danger-filled world at the Earth’s core, will find their new home at American Mythology Productions in 2017. The all-new adventures will be written by AM’s “The Land That Time Forgot” author Mike Wolfer, and readers will first be introduced to Pellucidar in the pages of the next “TLTTF” mini-series, “Terror from the Earth’s Core,” a special cross-over event that pits the two legendary worlds head-to-head in one incredible, science fiction action/adventure.
