Masque Of The Red Death

Here's A Cool Great Dell Comics' 
Movie Adaptation Of Poe's 
'The Masque Of The Red Death'
Directed By Roger Corman.
Illustrated By Frank Springer.


  1. I liked this comic book version of the movie, even if the story was changed here and there to accommodate the comics code. The drawings of Vincent Price were quite accurate, though in a few panels it looked more like a mix of 90% Vincent Price 10% Boris Karloff.

    A really great find, thanks for the post.

    1. From Wikipedia:

      Although the Comics Code Authority had no official control over publishers, most distributors refused to carry comics that did not carry the seal. However, at least two major publishers of comics – Dell Comics and Gold Key Comics – did not display the seal, and their comics continued to be widely available.


    2. What I was trying to say was that I did not realize Dell and Gold Key comics did not carry the comics seal. I had never noticed.
