[Cryptworld] "Creepy Comic Conversion" Issue 1 Now Available -- New Horror RPG Zine

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?

Issue 1 of the "Creepy Comic Conversion" series is now available in PDF at Drive Through RPG, and in a print-on-demand format at MagCloud. I'll also have copies available at Con of the Cob and U-Con Gaming Convention this fall, so be sure to look for them. 


  1. Wow! Being a comic fan, I love this kind of format! Great job

  2. This is quite possibly the best Cryptworld idea yet! Looking forward to future installments! (And extra thanks for pointing us toward the Digital Comic Museum for more Golden Age goodness.)

  3. I love it! I you can make NTRPG Con 2016 save me a few copies.
