Hello, kiddies! Are you ready for a terrifying tale from the terrible tomes of EC Comics? It’s hard to believe that the government stepped in not too many decades ago because horror comic books were considered a threat to our children. The main culprit? EC’s Tales from the Crypt and The Vault of Horror.

Although considered tame in today’s world, with comics like Faust, The Walking Dead, and Garfield on the market, EC Comics were once considered nearly pornographic. But, of course, that meant they were great! And what better way to celebrate the Crypt-Keeper, the Vault-Keeper, and the Old Witch than with this fantastic set of bookends from Dark Horse Direct.

The first of your titular hosts up for viewing is The Crypt-Keeper, garbed in his iconic blue tattered tunic. Poised to recite the tale of his grim origin story Lower Berth, the scene features a sideshow of skeletal ventriloquism sure to terrify and delight you! Total height reaches 81/2-inches tall and 6 ⅜-inches wide with all the gory details.

Next in line for your bookshelf of woe are The Old Witch and The Vault-Keeper, lurking at a total of 9-inches tall and 6 ¼-inches wide. Similarly clothed in their respective robes of primary red and green, with a crude lantern and a shrunken head held in wait, the pair await their turn to usher you into their vault of dread!

Two of the 1970s films based on the comics are available on YouTube right now. Check out Tales From The Crypt and The Vault of Horror below:
