With both Lugosi and Vincent Price having their own anthology series, it makes me wonder when will there an anthology series hosted by Boris Karloff? If you ever watch 1963's Black Sabbath (on Netflix Instant), the actor makes a very interesting narrator that could make him a perfect subject for a comic book series!

Most of those stories sound good. Nice to see that particular still going really.

Do what better? Different comics? The video wasn't to your satisfaction? Give me some parameters here, because if it's the fact that it's this particular comic, I enjoyed it and the Tales from the Grave comics.

Wait...that first story you described is Richard Matheson's classic 1954 novella "I Am Legend". I mean, literally, that's all it is.

Were you not aware of that? Was it that the character Moarte wasn't aware? No criticism intended, just curious (and sort of wondering if the ending is different enough to justify not making the connection). Also, did the comic give Matheson any credit, or did they just rip him off and change the title?

Incidentally, the actual novella "I Am Legend" was adapted into a really good self-contained graphic novel under the title "Richard Matheson's 'I Am Legend'." So far, the best adaptation of them all -- with the possible exception of Vincent Price's 1964 film "The Last Man on Earh".

Good video Linkara, I like these Bela Lugosi comics as well. As for the anonymous who said the story was just "I Am Legend", well, not really. It is going for the feel of "I Am Legend" but, there's a twist to it. #1 was my favorite of the series, but they're all fairly good. Anyway, Love the longbox series, thanks for all your hard work!

@ LucasChad - Boris Karloff did have own anthology series published by Gold Key quarterly, which lasted for 97 issues and 18 years.

So Dracula has comic artists in a dungeon.

I didn't know they let people take pictures of the DC offices.
