In 1974, Skywald had planned a new magazine — Tomb Of Horror — but it was decided that the stands were too crowded to launch a new book at the time, so the contents were repackaged as this issue, which was billed as the ‘Tomb Of Horror’ Special Edition. However, Hewetson makes it clear to the readers that this is a ‘pilot’ issue, meaning that if the demand was there, Tomb Of Horror could still see the light of day. The question was rendered moot as the entire Skywald line folded with a couple of months. Tomb Of Horror’s kick was to have the authors and artists introduce the stories, instead of the usual EC/Warren/Web Of Horror type horror hosts. Misdated October 1974, probably because this was originally supposed to be Nightmare #21.
