Here’s the description from

The heroes of the Marvel Universe spend most of their time in the bright sun, flying high above it all… but every once in a while, they venture into the darkness that lurks in the hidden corners of the world—there lurk the creatures, the monsters, the vampires… the ones who prey on innocence and goodness…

The original Crypt of Shadows ran for 21 issues between 1973 and 1975. Each issue featured reprints of stories from earlier Atlas Comics horror titles like Adventures into Terror and Strange Tales, featuring pre-Marvel era work by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and others.

Look for it in stores on Oct. 19 … if you dare!
