Synopsis

Tales from the Crypt Diary of a Stinky Dead Kid by Stefan Petrucha, Rob Vollmar, Jim Salicrup

The Ghoulunatics - The Vault-Keeper, the Old Witch, and everyone's favorite, The Crypt-Keeper are back to offer their twisted takes on Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the Twilight series, and Guitar Hero! The cover-featured Stinky Dead Kid stars in two tales - one that explains exactly how he became a Stinky Dead Kid, and another in which he battles 'Guitar Demon,' a popular musical toy that's become possessed by an evil entity. There's also the trenchant tale of teen love involving a girl and a vampire, 'Dielite,' and the riotous return of the ever-doomed Thomas Donnelly in his most bizarre tale yet!
