4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! 13 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Although of my era, I never got to see EC comics in the Midlands. Some must have made their way to England (there's a letter in this volume from a UK fan) but I can only think a limited few made it into circulation in London perhaps. I found it hard enough to find 'Famous Monsters Of Filmland' and my parents deeply disapproved of that! I was a massive fan (and subscriber to) 'Mad' in the early/mid 60s and I recall there was a UK edition of the magazine with a limited amount of UK-slanted content edited by a David Climie. Googling I find a David Climie (1920-1995) prolific comedy script writer who worked on 'The Two Ronnies' so it must be him I reckon.

The comic art skills on display in this volume are stunning and the high quality of the book itself is a fitting tribute to them.
One query: This is called 'Volume Three, issues 13-18 complete'. The actual comics inside are issues 29-34. Am I missing something here???

3.0 out of 5 stars Printing Error...Beware! 5 Oct 2008
By S. Zegarelli - Published on Amazon.com
I love these EC Archives books and own most of them. I just received Volume 3 of Tales from the Crypt and was very disappointed to see that due to a printing error, two stories are duplicated ("Grounds for Horror" & "Sucker for a Spider") while two other stores ("A Rottin' Trick" & "Bored to Death") are omitted entirely. I have to imagine that many if not all copies of this volume are similarly misprinted. I contacted Gemstone Publishing and am awaiting a response as to how they are going to resolve this, but it may be worth holding off on buying this volume until after the issue has been corrected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up To Snuff! 7 Jan 2009
By D.P. Merde - Published on Amazon.com
You can disregard the warning above concerning the printing error. I got in touch with the publisher and was assured that it was a fluke with that one copy. The copy I received bears this out. Also, if you look at the comments attached to that review, you'll find an assurance from the man himself, Russ Cochran, that this is the case. I love what Mr. Cochran has done with the EC line over the years and, other than the problem with the recent Weird Science volume (see my review for that if you want to know more), these archives, when they are right as Mr. Cochran intends them to be, continue to be of the highest quality. Amazon's price fluctuates quite regularly, though, between approximately 30 and 50 dollars, so you may want to get it "used" here or new elsewhere. For some reason the price seems to change coincidentally as the book goes in and out of stock at Buy.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars YAAAAAAAAAAAAH...More creepy goodness. 3 Mar 2009
By Neil Middleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Ghoulunatics once again spin yarns to keep you awake at night wondering what that strange noise might be outside.

Here, we are once again treated to six spine-tingling issues that will take you to strange islands, introduce you to not so imaginary friends, and even reveal the Crypt-Keeper's origins.

If you're reading this review you're either already a fan and curious about what others are saying, or you're a newcomer that's unsure what you might be getting into. Well newcomers, I can assure you you can't go wrong. Don't worry about your kids being 'desensitized', they won't be. I was no more than five when I picked up my first Crypt and have never looked back. Though some of these stories will have you peering over your shoulder from time to time, just to be sure no one's there.

Now, shut the lights down, stop that corpse from screaming and get reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 2 May 2013
By Brian N. Fariss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My copy of Vol. 3 just arrived yesterday. I could not help myself and stayed up all night reading it. The stories still hold up. And the concern of prior review relating to duplication of tales has been addressed.

Absolutely awesome comics! These are my main inspiration for my own short films in my YouTube channel ( Tales From The Beyond).
