A Great Comics Tradition Continued in Next Week’s Crypt of Shadows #1

For decades, the comic book industry has made billions on the backs of creative talents who signed away their creations as work for hire. Many died in poverty as publishers or their corporate owners raked in cash, with their descendantsĀ gaining back some compensation only by filing posthumous lawsuits. So it’s fitting that next week’sĀ Crypt of Shadows, part of Marvel’s 80th-anniversary celebration, features literal grave robbing at the center of its horror tale.

Will this lone graverobber sell out to Disney? Pick up the issue next week to find out.

Crypt of Shadows #1 hits stores next Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
