Tales from the Crypt magazine One-shot, July 1968. Eerie Publications.

Myron Fass had decided to add another title to his line of horror comics, and this particular title seemed to evoke the spirit of that genre like no other - and still does.

Unfortunately, it was famously owned by someone else. William Gaines, then at Mad magazine, still held the rights to the title of the beloved EC comic, and wasn't about to let anybody else - much less a hack like Fass - use it without repercussions.

So, this is the only issue released; the next number would be renamed Tales Of Voodoo, thus launching that title as a new entity.
