Tales from the Crypt - "Blood Type 'V'"

Reprinted in "Tales from the Crypt" Vol. 4 No. 6 (EC/Russ Cochran, December 1993) and in "EC Archives: Tales from the Crypt" Vol. 1 (Gemstone, February 2007).

This series can be confusing due to all the reprints issued. As such, we've split them into five separate volumes:

  1. Original EC comics (Oct 1950 - Feb 1955)
  2. Gladstone reprint series (Jul 1990 - May 1991)
  3. EC/Russ Cochran reprint series 1 (Sep 1991 - Jul 1992)
  4. EC/Russ Cochran reprint series 2 (Sep 1992 - Jun 1994)
  5. Gemstone reprint series (Sep 1994 - Dec 1999)

The original issues are also reprinted in four volumes, six issues apiece, by Gemstone under the "EC Archives" banner (Feb 2007 - Jul 2009).  These volumes cover issues #1-24, which actually correspond to the original series #20-43 (as its numbering sequence began with 20, having continued from "The Crypt of Terror" which preceeded it).

From the Library

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
