Mad & Crypt Creator Gets Biopic

Joel Eisenberg (“Out of the Black”) and Iron Mountain Media have picked up the life rights to renowned publisher William M. Gaines says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines,” will revolve around the banding together of an anti-establishment group of comic book creators, led by a reluctant Gaines, as they produce their controversial yet hugely popular line of comic books like “Tales From the Crypt” and Mad magazine.

Those publications later led Gaines to face Senate subcommittee hearings over accusations of perpetuating juvenile delinquency.
