Do you prefer me to purchase your magazine directly from you... or can I find it in a store? Which is better for your company?

We have thousands of happy subscribers, who receive each and every issue in their mailboxes. Each issue is mailed directly from our printer and is mailed inside a protective manila envelope. We also send out re-subscription letters so you are sure to remember when the time comes to re-subscribe. Our subscription rates offer substantial savings.

But we also have many thousands of readers who buy us from the newsstands or the bookstores or the comic shops. Cemetery Dance is carried by all the biggest magazine distributors (including Ingram Periodicals), but our distribution is still spotty at best — in some cities, you can find us in a half-dozen stores, and in other cities, we are nowhere to be found. It's completely up to the individual stores.

So, when it comes to the magazine, I would say the choice is yours — whatever is best for you, is best for us.

How can I find out-of-print back issues of the magazine?

Unfortunately, once we sell out of a particular issue of Cemetery Dance, they are almost impossible to find on the secondary collector's market. Your best bet is to try eBay.

What is Grave Tales?

Grave TalesA horror anthology comic book presented by the World Fantasy Award-winning magazine Cemetery Dance, each issue features three tales of terror from today's most popular authors. If you were a fan of the old Warren comics (Creepy and Eerie) and the legendary EC horror books (such as Tales From the Crypt and The Vault of Horror), you will absolutely love Grave Tales!
