Thrills and Chills for All-Hallows' Eve

FIVE SCARY TALES IN THE EC COMICS TRADITION,
PRESENTED BY YOUR HORRIBLE HOST NERWIN THE DOCENT

Eureka Productions is pleased to announce the release of Halloween Classics: Graphic Classics Volume 23, the newest volume in the Graphic Classics® series of comics adaptations of great literature.

Halloween Classics presents five scary tales for the holiday, each with an EC Comics-style introduction by famed horror author Mort Castle. Featured are Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, Arthur Conan Doyle’s mummy tale “Lot No. 249”, Mark Twain’s “A Curious Dream”, and H.P. Lovecraft’s “Cool Air”. Plus, a comics adaptation of the great silent film “The Cabinet of Dr. Calligari”, illustrated by Matt Howarth, with a terrifying cover by Simon Gane.

The Graphic Classics series presents the works of great authors in comics adaptations and heavily-illustrated text. The adaptations are written at an adult level, and utilize as much of the author’s original language as possible. Our goal is to create books that are enjoyable for adults, yet accessible to children ages twelve and up. Graphic Classics are available in bookstores and comics shops nationally, or direct from the publisher, Eureka Productions at http: ⁄ ⁄ www.graphicclassics.com. Libraries and schools can order from Diamond Book Distributors, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, Follett or other distributors.
