Marvel’s ‘Crypt of Shadows’ Unearthed Again for Halloween 2023

Marvel cracks open the crypt again this October for a descent into monster/hero madness.

This year’s Crypt of Shadows anthology arrives smack in the middle of the Halloween season on October 18 and includes a mix of classic heroes and classic Marvel Monster confrontations and team-ups.

The one shot includes (courtesy of Marvel Comics) the following tales of terror:

  • Victor Strange, younger brother of Doctor Strange, goes deeper than ever into the crypt as he once again plays host to the frightful festivities in a framing story by writer Al Ewing and artist Paul Davidson.
  • Writer Cavan Scott and artist Devmalya Pramanik present a devilishly delightful Deadpool story that features the classic horror charterer the Living Mummy and sets him up for an exciting new status quo! 
  • Current Scarlet Witch scribe Steve Orlando and artist Paul Azaceta weave a Scarlet Witch story where she faces a terrifying new villain called the Bricklayer!
  • Writer Sarah Gailey and artist Eder Messias explore “man vs. monster” in a tale starring Werewolf by Night and the Hulk!
  • The swamp creature who burns all who know fear battles alongside the man without fear! See Daredevil and Man-Thing team up for a spine-tingling adventure from writer Declan Shalvey and artist Alex Lins.

Last year’s Crypt of Shadows contained a similar format to the 2023 version, with super heroes and monsters such as Moon Knight, Wolverine (formerly known as X-23), Elsa Bloodstone, Man-Thing, Werewolf by Night, and the daughter of Blade, Bloodline interacting in spooky, supernatural settings.

Leinil Francis Yu once again provides the cover for the “monster mash”, which you can peruse below.
