Crypt of Shadows
Whoever edited this first issue of CRYPT OF SHADOWS, did a good job of collecting artists of different styles. Gil Kane did the eye-catching cover. Mort Lawrence opens with his tale of a witch, then we find the great Basil Wolverton. Jay Scott Pike was usually more at home with the love comics, but Russ Heath could draw about anything, and this is a funny strip using the Charles Atlas ads for inspiration.
