by Thomas Tuna

This is a team-up comic to chill the blood.

Marvel Comics will release a special one-shot anthology horror title–Crypt of Shadows No. 1–just in time for Halloween. Check out the cover from Leinil Francis Yu–courtesy of Collider–on this page.

The comic–with stories by Chris Cooper, Al Ewing, Danny Lore, Rebecca Roanhorse, Adam Warren and Chris Condon and art from Karen S. Darboe, Geoff Shaw and Ibrahim Moustafa–boasts a lineup of such supernatural heroes (and anti-heroes) as Moon Knight, Blade, Werewolf by Night, Wolverine, Man-Thing and Blade’s daughter, Bloodline.

The one-shot–which goes on sale Oct. 19–is described as “an homage to the original 1970s Crypt of Shadows anthology series–with a collection of stories that showcases how creepy the Marvel Universe can be.”

Marvel’s original Crypt of Shadows series–that ran for 21 issues from 1973-1975–featured the talents of Stan Lee, Gil Kane, Tom Palmer, Klaus Janson, Herb Trimpe and Frank Giacoia.
