Overview

Gather up your wooden stakes, your blood-covered hatchets, and all the skeletons in the darkest depths of your closet, and prepare for a horrifying adventure into the darkest corners of comics history. Dark Horse Comics further corners the market on high quality horror storytelling with one of the most anticipated releases of the decade, a hardcover archive collection of legendary Creepy Magazine. This groundbreaking material turned the world of graphic storytelling on its head in the early 1960s, as phenomenal young artists like Bernie Wrightson and Neal Adams reached new artistic heights with their fascinating explorations of classic and modern horror stories. *Brilliant, classic Creepy stories from 1964-1966 raised from the dead after twenty-five years. *Featuring work by such comics luminaries as Joe Orlando, Al Williamson, Alex Toth, and Frank Frazetta. * Archive editions of Creepy will be the cornerstone of any comic-book library. *Volume One reprints the first five terrifying issues of the magazine's original run, reprinted in the original magazine size!

    CREEPY IS OUTSTANDING!!

    This is a must have book for old and new readers of Creepy. If you've watched and liked Tales From The Crypt you'll like Creepy. It's funny, scarey, unpredictable, and unforgetable!! I use to read these black and white magazines in the early sixties along with Eerie, Vampirella, and Mad. Some of the best writers and artists were working for Warren Publications and Archie Goodwin. <BR/><BR/>Thank you Dark Horse and looking forward to Creepy Vol 2!! Keep em coming!

    Rising from the dust of the past

    Excellent collected set of the first 5 issues of James Warren's outstanding Creepy magazine from the middle 1960's. Having kept an original set of these magazines I can appreciate the re-telling of these dark tales on another generation of rabid readers. Not to be read alone at night.......Keep others around and a few lights on................
