The Thing from the Grave: and Other Stories

Fantagraphics Books
Free sample

 This special collection features more than 30 EC classics from the pages of Tales From the Crypt, The Haunt of Fear, The Vault of Horror, Shock SuspenStories, Impact, and Crime SuspenStories. Of special note is Orlando’s “The Monkey,” the classic realistic EC story about drug addiction, considered to be one of the most cautionary of “the preachies,” and Orlando’s adaptation of Bradbury’s eerily haunting “The Lake,” about a childhood tragedy. This volume also includes the title story “The Thing From the Grave,” a special Orlando frightfest originally printed in 3-D that hasn’t been seen since its original publication more than 60 years ago (and is presented here for the first time in easy-on-the-eyes 2-D). Plus all of Orlando’s Panic stories, including parodies of Mother Goose, TV commercials, and soap operas. Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC Artists’ Library, The Thing From the Grave And Other Stories also features essays and notes by EC experts on these superbly crafted, classic American comics.

Ray Bradbury was born in Waukegan, Illinois, in 1920. Growing up during the Great Depression, Bradbury began writing at the age of 11.

In the first three volumes of his memoirs concerning experiences while serving at Nellis Air Force Base, Charles Hall gave astonishing testimony of having met with 'Tall White' extraterrestrials located at a secret underground facility at Nellis.
Three independent witnesses have come forward to confirm important parts of Hall's testimony. Hall is a credible witness of extraterrestrials having reached agreements with military officials.
This fourth volume offers more startling details that help confirm his experiences and help usher in new era of official disclosure of extraterrestrial life.
Micheal E. Salla, Ph.D. President and Founder, The Exopolitics Institute
Charles Hall's report (Millennial Hospitality I-III) of his encounters and deep interactions with tall humanoid beings living on the Earth remains without serious challenge to this day. And this is remarkable, as its implications are so radical; they reveal an entrenched presence in the American Southwest that predates the arrival of Euro-Americans in the area, and that continues with covert protection and support from the government while maintaining communications with a distant home location. Hall's powerful and entirely self-consistent narrative, filled with surprising and revealing detail, is so impressive that I have chosen it as the only example of modern human-ET contact to receive major coverage in my web pages. Gerry Zeitlin, Open Seti Initiative
It is possible that eventually the story Charles Hall tells will be seen as a pivotal moment in UFOlogy. His story has become the key to linking a disparate series of reports, encounters and claims that have circulated in UFO circles without a home for many years.This fourth and final account gives us the most detailed look ever into one aspect of a covert military-alien liaison that has been underway for decades.Essential reading!Researcher, Author.
