We all were I would say beyond excited about the Super Bowl Ad containing the teaser trailer for one of the “generations greatest scares” books if I may say, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
The original stories were told by Alvin Schwartz with drawings from Stephen Gammell. Over a course of three books with a total of 82 Stories. Released from 1981-1991. From there the first adaption of all three books occurred in 2004, released on July 25th. However it was not the original artworks from Stephen Gammell, but featured the artwork from Brett Helquist.
But for those like myself, we remember the different artwork. But the originals might even differ as well. Like mentioned the originals were released from 1981-1991, giving us nightmarish covers and stories. From Stephen Gammell, which later in 2017 we finally got all 3 books with original artworks.
Released July 25th 2017. The 3 Book Original Artwork by Stephen Gammell Collection.
