Eerie Tales: Reimagining EC Horror Comics With a Gorilla Luchadore Cryptkeeper [Full Comic]
If you’re a fan of things that are awesome, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re already familiar with Mike McGee and Tamas Jakab’s El Gorgo!, the rip-roaring saga of the world’s greatest gorilla luchador super-hero, who battles Lovecraftian evil across time and space and still makes it back in time to play in his surf rock band, Gorgo A-Go-Go!
If you haven’t, don’t fret: You can buy all three awesome issues or download them for free in your choice of format. But that’s not all. In celebration of Halloween, McGee and Jakab have released a special treat for their readers and ours here at ComicsAlliance: an all-new six-page story inspired by the classic EC Horror Comics of the ’50s, made all the more awesome by the fact that Gorgo Himself is standing in for the Cryptkeeper! Horror, ironic punishments, and even the traditional EC typefaces — what more could you want? Catch the entire story after the jump!
My only problem? Not nearly enough of the lucha Jimmy Olsen to Gorgo’s Superman, Eddie Devil! But then again, that’s my problem with just about every comic.
Happy Gorgoween, everybody!
