Screen Rant is happy to present a variant of Bayard Morse’s cover for the second volume of the “Last Comic on the Left”, which you can see below.
Horror anthologies are one of the oldest genres of comics. Despite the fact that EC Comics has not participated in the game for decades, it has taken its place in the history of comics, releasing titles such as The Vault of Horror, The Haunt of Fear and, of course, Tales from the Crypt. These comics have recently experienced a resurgence in popularity, as evidenced by the huge number of Tales From the Crypt fan art that has appeared recently. There has been an increased interest in horror games in the last few years, and anthologies have become a great way to showcase some truly creative storytellers. After cutting teeth with Soul Plumber, the Last Podcast team seems to be bringing big artillery pieces to their comic book-based spinoff.
All this makes up a comic anthology that should excite horror fans. However, these fans will have to wait until this fall to get their hands on the next volume. The last comic on the left, especially if they want that awesome Bayard Morse cover.
