Back in the 1950's and 60’s, aliens were attacking, ghosts were haunting and monsters lurked everywhere -
thankfully for us today - the comics were there to chronicle the whole series of events! PS Artbooks
Presents TALES FROM THE TOMB #1 from Dell, with it’s beautifully painted cover by L B Cole,
who was Art Director and Editor at Dell in the early 60s.
All the stories inside this 84-page giant-sized one-shot are written by John Stanley who definitely put the
“weird” in “weird menace”, packed with strangeness in an era of the Comics Code blandness.
Dell never went the route of using the CCA, relying on their good brand to lead sales. Then they put out
Tales from the Tomb. And out of the 14 stories, the most memorable is “Crazy Quilt” about a woman one
the verge of a nervous breakdown after an odd encounter in the park.
