I love horror comix, especially the long-forgotten ones that have entered the public domain. As a way to bring these amazing terror tales back to life, I’ve grabbed one at random and converted one of the stories as a mini-Cryptworld adventure. In this full-color 20-page zine, you first read the short comic story, then the back-half is that same tale now fleshed out and statted up for an evening’s gaming.
So here is Issue 1 of the "Creepy Comic Conversion" series featuring "The Case Of The Painted Beast" from Eerie Number 3 (1951):
In "The Case Of The Painted Beast", a prize-winning piece of artwork has been irreplaceably damaged, and the badly-injured night watchman claims the vandal wasn't human! Was the assault and destruction caused by a disgruntled losing artist? Or is there something more nefarious – and deadly – stalking the contest judges?
