Marvel Comics will be publish a one-shot horror comic called Crypt of Shadows this October, featuring Deadpool, Scarlet Witch, Hulk, & more
From October of 1972 through August of 1975, Marvel Comics published twenty-one issues of a horror comic called Crypt of Shadows. That series got a one-shot revival in 2019, and now Marvel has announced that there’s going to be another one-shot revival of Crypt of Shadows this October – and this time the horror comic book is going to feature several Marvel superhero characters!
Set to reach store shelves on October 18th, the new Crypt of Shadows #1 is coming our way from writers Al Ewing, Steve Orlando, Sarah Gailey, Cavan Scott, and Declan Shalvey, and artists Paul Davidson, Paul Azaceta, Eder Messias, Devmalya Pramanik, and Alex Lins. Leinil Francis Yu has created the cover for the issue, and you can check that out at the bottom of this article.
Here’s the information on Crypt of Shadows #1: The hit one-shot is back for another year of tales starring some of the spookiest characters comics has to offer. The crypt will be reopened and the creatures, monsters, and ghouls of the Marvel Universe will emerge in this collection of terrifying and easily accessible stories that will haunt new fans and longtime readers alike this Halloween season! Once more, as All Hallows’ Eve draws nigh, the dust-covered slab that seals shut the crypt, blocking out the sun and casting it forever in shadow, has creaked open to let the darkness loose to prey on the Marvel Universe! Be they mercenary or mage, guided by law or by rage, our heroes will face their terror, and they’d best pray their spines are sturdy enough for the job… or the crypt they find may well be their own!
And here’s the list of stories the issue will contain:
Victor Strange, younger brother of Doctor Strange, goes deeper than ever into the crypt as he once again plays host to the frightful festivities in a framing story by writer Al Ewing and artist Paul Davidson.
Writer Cavan Scott and artist Devmalya Pramanik present a devilishly delightful Deadpool story that features the classic horror character the Living Mummy and sets him up for an exciting new status quo!
Current Scarlet Witch scribe Steve Orlando and artist Paul Azaceta weave a Scarlet Witch story where she faces a terrifying new villain called the Bricklayer!
Writer Sarah Gailey and artist Eder Messias explore “man vs. monster” in a tale starring Werewolf by Night and the Hulk!
The swamp creature who burns all who know fear battles alongside the man without fear! See Daredevil and Man-Thing team up for a spine-tingling adventure from writer Declan Shalvey and artist Alex Lins.
