It kind of makes you wonder what happened to ol' John Kassir. His laugh and corny puns are what made the show memorable.

John Kassir played ralph the college kid in reefer madness the musical. that's about all i know that he's been up to since tales from the crypt.

the comics were great, i liked em more than the show. i would go to the local comic shop and buy the reprinted ones.

It is true that all mobsters, men, and women, looked the same in the fifties.

At one point, concerned parents (a group more terrifying than any crypt tale) contended that comics like this were promoting illiteracy.

I remember reading about how people once thought comic books to be a communist weapon and even went as far as to burn their kid's copies. and let's not forget Dr. Fredrick wertham's book..

I'd certainly like to see more of those paperback comics around here in Mexico. Or maybe they are out there for me to get the habit of reading them agains instead of sitting all day here designing logos and stuff...

Hoyt Johnson: Kassir has done a plethora of video game and cartoon voices since Reefer Maddness(which was brilliant).

As far as the comics go; I used to have a handful of reprint issues growing up. Then a few years ago I managed to pick up the black and white, hardcover archive editions of both Tales and The Haunt of Fear. Now I find that there is a new set in color. Damn me and my impatience! Anyways, there are many great yarns in these comics, but there are also quite a few bad ones (and a lot of reused ideas).

I absolutely love the awesome artwork.

It only ran for 9 issues, but Twisted Tales definitely topped Crypt in terms of violence and gore. You should try to track those down and review 'em.

Mister Tea Oct 3rd, 2008 04:14 PM

Uh, my bad; Twisted Tales ran for 10 issues, not 9.
