Marvel actually did release two issues of a Nightmare on Elm Street comic two years before this was published, written by Steve Gerber. It was solicited for at least five issues and had stories submitted by Buzz Dixon and Peter David before its abrupt cancellation.
One story goes that someone in Marvel had it cancelled after actually reading it and finding out what it was about, although you'd think the Tomb of Dracula and Epic Comics stuff might have been just as bad, I guess Nightmare on Elmstreet was more known and therefore more easily subjected to public scrutiny.
But hey, if it went on any longer, maybe we could have actually had Doctor Strange vs Freddy Krueger. Who knows?
