 In 2016 Vinny Malave decided to start The Cryptic Closet, an apparel company that encompasses his love for all things horror.   Now he runs the company with his brother, Moses Gibson, and it has become a staple of horror convention scene.  Vinny and Julio Guerra have been friends for a while and about two years ago started kicking around the idea of doing a comic.   In 2018 Julio, along with his friend Ben Miller, they formed Guerrilla Publishing, an indie comic company that cares about making enjoyable books above all else.  The marriage of the two companies made the timing perfect to launch Tales of The Cryptic Closet.  The book is an homage to the Creepy, Tales from the Crypt, and EC comics of the past.  It contains six stories with ten creators involved.  We have creators from fashion, film, and comics involved.    The creators are: 

 Anthony Cleveland (Alterna, Madcave)

Ashley Esper (Skulls & Sketches, The Lab)

Adam Farster (Floor 13 Studios, Guerrilla Publishing, A&O Comics, The Lab)

Jorge Garza  (Qezta Art)

Julio Guerra (Marvel, Aftershock , Pro Wrestling Tees, Guerrilla, The Lab) 

Bill Halliar (Professional Storyboard artist, Devil's Due, Archaia, Moonstone, Northstar, Sterling, SLG, The Lab)

 Joshua Hull (writer and director of films such as Beverly Lane, Voice Over, The Impersonators, and Chopping Block)

Lisa Jones (Red Guerrilla Entertainment, The Lab)

Vinny Malave (The Cryptic Closet, Pro Wrestling Tees)

Ben Miller (Guerrilla, A&O Comics, The Lab, Enjoy Comics, Ucreate Comics).
