Will I be buying this comic book? OH YEAH! Here's the lowdown from the official Monsterverse website on the first (and so far only) issue of 'Bela Lugosi's Tales From The Grave.' Look for issue #2 - with a cover designed by make-up legend Rick Baker - to hit stands sometime in July!
BELA'S BACK...AND THE MONSTERVERSE HAS HIM

The Monsterverse is proud to announce BELA LUGOSI'S TALES FROM THE GRAVE, a full-color anthology in the classic EC and Warren tradition, presenting weird and fantastic tales to keep you awake long into the night. In a special arrangement with Bela G. Lugosi, son of the famous actor, Bela Lugosi will act as host and commentator for each terror tale.
Comics professionals Kerry Gammill and Kez Wilson are returning to the field as publishers of the series and will be providing art for many of the stories. Some of the finest horror artists and writers in comics will also be bringing their talents to the book. The first issue will feature a cover by legendary monster painter Basil Gogos and an alternate cover by John Cassaday. Gammill, Wilson and screenwriter Sam F. Park will be the editing the series as well as writing stories for the book.
