First to the reviewers who commented here already-- are you kidding me?
The size is listed in the description-- shame on you for not reading it. This was a GREAT book reprinting those black and white magazines Marvel put out in the 1970s, the paper is bright white and much higher quality than their Essentials line which is printed on newsprint.

These reprint issues 1-3 of Vampire Tales, yes including all of the articles and great photo spreads from vampire movies from the 1920s up through the 70s-- it's a REPRINT folks-- it REPRINTS the issues in question-- I'd be disappointed if it didn't!
These stories are moody and effective entries into the horror genre from a period when Marvel was stagnating with umpteen Spider-Man and X-Men titles.

Featuring works by some of the great South American artists Marvel employed in the 70s as well as reprints of earlier horror tales by such masters as Carmine Infantino, John Romita (Sr) and more-- this was a really entertaining read and perfect for a cool fall night.

Size wise it's digest-- a little bigger than a typical Manga collection-- but the work is beautifully reproduced. My only complaint is the cover-- very generic and not much thought given to an otherwise wonderful collection.

Is it worth $20? No, but that's why I bought it on Amazon for $13.

Can't wait for the second volume-- highest possible recommendation--

I got this thinking it would be a trade paperback version of the magazine(Issues 1-3).When the magazine came out it was ~60% new stories and ~40% repeats from the past. Well this puts it all in ..repeats(from before the Mag. was published)...articles and the at the time new stories(some of the articles maybe new). To add insult to the whole thing...it is the size of a book digest(5-3/4"X8-7/8"). It is just a little bigger then a paperback.It is also very much thinner(1/2") then a trade paperback.All in black and white for $20. Just be warned....this is not what it seems and from now on I will watch what I buy from Marvel before seeing it myself first. Shame on you Marvel.

Buyer be warned, this is a small format. This is not a normal sized comic trade, this book is 5.75" X 8.875". It should have been marketed as a "digest" version.

Verified Purchase
This is a faithful reprint edition of the old Marvel Vampire Tales Magazines from the 1970s. Complete black white horror comics as well as reviews and short fiction shine in this odd-ball formatted edition. This is a great way to read all those old horror stories without having to track down the original issues. I bought this for myself, and liked it so much I bought one for a friend (she loves it, too). It just goes to show that vampire mania cycles in and out of American pop culture every few years!
