“A brand new horror anthology comic book presented by the World Fantasy Award-winning magazine Cemetery Dance, each issue will feature three tales of terror from today’s most popular authors! If you were a fan of the old Warren comics (Creepy and Eerie) and the legendary EC horror books (such as Tales From the Crypt and The Vault of Horror), you will absolutely love Grave Tales!”

Cemetery Dance Publication has a winner on their hands here. An awesome collection of 3 stories and great artwork that follows along the lines of other great horror titles.

Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
The cover on this issue really grabs my attention. The way it is drawn and colored reminds me of some great Tales From the Crypt books. The interiors are just as stunning with two very different styles. Fisher and Foss’ work is fantastic and the panels flow so well together. Chadbourne’s work is so different and detailed. It reminds me of Vincent Locke’s work on the early Deadworld issues.

Story: 4.0 out of 5
My main draw in this books is Hill’s story (read Locke & Key). The three stories are fresh and fun with good horror nestled in between. The writers know the medium well and are able to put the terror in you while reading. Very nicely done.

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
I know that there is a good mix of horror anthologies out there, trust me I read them all. What makes Grave Tales stand out to me is the quality of the work by the creative teams. This issue in particular was really good. The stories and art will have you trembling in fear, and what more can you ask for in a good horror comic? Pick an issue up and give it a chance.
