    This volume fit right in with the other volumes of the series, but mummies seem to be a little limited. 90% of the stories involve the dreaded Mummy's Curse where the defiler of the tomb suffers a horrible fate, and the other stories either involve a mummy searching for his lost love or being controlled by some who wants to use it for his own nefarious means. I'm sure there were countless vampire and werewolf stores back in the day, but mummies seemed to be a little rarer.

I'm sure there were countless vampire and werewolf stores back in the day, but mummies seemed to be a little rarer. Still an entertaining volume with some cool stories and artwork. If you like mummies check this one out, and even if you don't maybe give them a chance. They are sorta like the Rodney Dangerfield of the monster world. "No respect, lemme tell ya!"

    A collection of stories from comic book publishers like Harvey and ACG around the theme of creepy Egyptian things, including the titular mummies. This reads pretty much like an expanded issue of the Haunted Horror comic book Yoe and his crew assemble every couple of months. I'm assuming it's also the first in a new series of softcover volumes dedicated to specific types of monsters. I found this collection somewhat less amusing than prior Yoe books, probably because the stories are repetitious - A collection of stories from comic book publishers like Harvey and ACG around the theme of creepy Egyptian things, including the titular mummies.

I found this collection somewhat less amusing than prior Yoe books, probably because the stories are repetitious -- there are only so many stories one can tell about revivified pharaohs, tomb curses, etc., but there are gems among the moldy wrappings and the presentation is first rate.

    Ha sido realmente insatisfactorio. Pobremente ilustradas y coloreadas, estas historias han envejecido muy mal (cual momias) y la mayoría son bastante infantiles, por no decir estúpidas. Hay un par que consiguen buenos momentos de horror y violencia, pero no mucho más que eso. Hasta ahora, el más flojo de la colección

    Me encanta la momia, uno de mis monstruos preferidos. Tiene su propia agenda y siempre ha ido a lo suyo. Está cómoda en su no vida letárgica de vendajes. No sufre el ansia del vampiro, ni la lunática maldición frenética del lobo. Salvo que se encuentre bajo las órdenes de un molesto "moderno" que, con un amuleto o aparato científico, domine su voluntad, simplemente aguarda su momento bien para cumplir con una venganza ancestral (de aspiración romántica por lo general) bien porque invaden su pequ Me encanta la momia, uno de mis monstruos preferidos. Tiene su propia agenda y siempre ha ido a lo suyo. Está cómoda en su no vida letárgica de vendajes. No sufre el ansia del vampiro, ni la lunática maldición frenética del lobo. Salvo que se encuentre bajo las órdenes de un molesto "moderno" que, con un amuleto o aparato científico, domine su voluntad, simplemente aguarda su momento bien para cumplir con una venganza ancestral (de aspiración romántica por lo general) bien porque invaden su pequeño mundo de polvo acomodaticio para el pillaje personal o por el bien de la historia. Es un monstruo tímido y conservador aunque efectivo si se le irrita, quizá por eso se salvó de la mayor parte de la fervorosa censura que se llevó por delante a los otros entes terroríficos en los cómics. Su determinación es innegable y enfocada al contrario que el hambre frenética del zombi. Sobrevivió en las viñetas porque tenía más de reclamo exótico en la vitrina que de sanguinario ente de ultratumba. En este libro se recuperan muchas de esas fabulosas historias, algunas de apenas una plana, en un recorrido delicioso por todo tipo de pirámides, mauselis abandonados y polvorientos corredores que aún perviven sin explorar como reclamo para el que quiera arriesgarse a sufrir una posible condena. Un libro delicioso dentro de esta colección de lujo editada por Diábolo.

    Nice addition to any horror library. It includes magazine clips, short stories, extra art, and the titular horror comics. It's a bit more trimmed down than The Horror, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Nice addition to any horror library.

    Unfortunately, mummy stories are just not that interesting. What is surprising in this book, however, is how gory comics in the ‘50s were!
