Bela Lugosi's Tales from the Grave, published by Monsterverse Entertainment, is a horror anthology in the tradition of EC comics and Creepy Magazine. Each issue presents shocking comic book tales of terror hosted by the original king of Hollywood horror, Bela Lugosi through special arrangement with the Bela Lugosi estate. Each issue contains multiple stories by a variety of writers and artists and has featured art by John Cassaday, Bill Sienkiewicz, Bruce Timm, Terry Beatty, John Lucas, Rafael Navarro, Chris Moreno, Benton Jew, Henry Mayo, Mike Hoffman, Neil Vokes, Lowell Isaac, Mike Dubitch and Kerry Gammill. Monsterverse cover artists have included Basil Gogos, Dan Brereton, John Cassaday, Terry Wolfinger, Alex Tuis, Dave Hartman and Academy Award winning make-up effects artist Rick Baker.

Monsterverse is seeking cover art which is strange, weird, spooky, chilling, monstrous or mysterious and sparks the imagination. Although our main emphasis is on horror and fear, subjects can also include similar genres such as fantasy or science fiction. The cover art will also be the source of inspiration for a story that will appear in the same issue and incorporate ideas suggested by the winning artist.
