Printed on a Multilith by Steve Kelley (Top Hat), it contains comics work by cousins Ken Leach and Mark Pickens that was inspired by the then-current monster craze.
After this issue was published Ken Leach went off to college and although the second issue was assembled it never was published until 1988 when he discovered independent comic books (see my other auctions).
The title was changed to Tales from the Morgue with issue 2.
