BELA LUGOSI's TALES FROM THE GRAVE Preview
On August 16, 1956, Bela Lugosi quietly passed away.
Today, over fifty years later, the great actor is more famous, and more loved, than he was even during his own remarkable lifetime.
In memory and tribute to the legendary Lugosi, I'm posting this preview page from my new horror story "The Midnight Museum", drawn by my friend, and fellow-Lugosi fan, Eisner Award winning cartoonist, Terry Beatty. The ultra-cool "Cinecolor" is by Tom Smith.
This is just one of several new chilling episodes to be featured in the debut issue of BELA LUGOSI's TALES FROM THE GRAVE comic book horror anthology, including contributions by Basil Gogos, Kerry Gammill, Neil Vokes, John Cassady, and other great genre creators. Published by the fine, fearsome folks at Monsterverse.
The book is due in stores on Bela's birthday, near Halloween. Please contact your local, or online, comic book shop and pre-order BELA LUGOSI's TALES FROM THE GRAVE # 1 no later than August 27 to insure that you receive your copy. The Diamond Item Code is AUG 101080.
I'm also providing a link below for a very cool two-and-a-half minute Monsterverse trailer, running highlights of this exciting and historic first issue collector's item.
Lugosi is one of the great immortals of the Golden Age of Hollywood. No mere grave can hold him. Coming this October, once again, Bela Lugosi lives!
