GRAPHIC CLASSICS SALE

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

During the month of October (only) Eureka Productions is pleased to announce that Halloween Classics: Graphic Classics Volume 23 will be on sale on the Graphic Classics website [www.graphicclassics.com]. (only). List price is $17.95. Special sale price is only $10!

Halloween Classics presents five scary tales for the holiday, each with an EC Comics-style introduction by famed horror author Mort Castle. Featured are Washington Irving'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. Resellers can order from Diamond Book Distributors, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, Follett or other distributors.  

“The quality of the Graphic Classics series has never faltered and this treat for horror fans is no exception.  Great art and story adaptions. My favourite has to be ‘The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow’ — I saw the animated film when I was a kid and ever since tried to check out any movie or comic adaptions and this one is spot on!"
— Terry Hooper, Comic Bits Online

“Adapting stories by such luminaries as H.P Lovecraft, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mark Twain, Washington Irving, and more, Halloween Classics is a fantastic collection. Well-written and wonderfully illustrated throughout, this really is a must-have for fans of comics, horror, and literature alike. And best of all, it's all-ages material, suitable for anyone 12 (or slightly younger, depending on the kid) and up. This is a perfect read for the Halloween season and should be a part of each and every library collection."
— Bob Freeman, Monster Librarian

"In addition to adapting genuinely classic works into accessible and fun comics for all ages, for this volume Mr. Pomplun and his crew have also created a sly EC tribute book as well. There’s a framing story done in the EC style by Mort Castle and Kevin Atkinson introducing each story in the book that left me grinning from ear to ear, and the stories chosen for adaptation this time out are very cool. My favorite, though, has to be 'The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari', adapted from the original screenplay with art by Matt Howarth. Strongly recommended."
— Greg Hatcher, Comic Book Resources
