Each archive volume of Creepy is packed with stories (usually up to eight short stories were featured in every issue!) running the gamut of gruesome subject matter, from reimagined horror classics such as The Cask of Amontillado, to spectacularly mindtwisting shorts such as The Thing in the Pit, or the macabre maritime yarn Drink Deep.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

These reprints of '60s b&w horror comics magazines Creepy#6-10 are aimed at the connoisseur. They're faithful reproductions, to the extent of including each issue's cover, seven or eight short stories, table of contents, letter column and ads (updated with Web site addresses). Since the glossy stock is much finer than the authentic newsprint, visually, these pages are better than the originals, with moody, dark blacks that punctuate the shock endings. Even if they don't make sense, the villains get what they deserve, regardless of historical period-Roman, Victorian or contemporary. Some Archives projects run into trouble with color, since it's cheaper to print without it, but here, there's no loss to the gorgeous art. Various shading and cross-hatching techniques provide depth to the illustrations of outstanding talents: Gray Morrow, Reed Crandall, Al Williamson, Joe Orlando, Alex Toth, John Severin, Angelo Torres, Gene Colan and Steve Ditko. Combine them with writer/editor Archie Goodwin, one of the best ever in the business, and the result is pulp at its highest level of craft and entertainment. (Dec.)

    Excellent! A must have for any collector. All the master artists

    Excellent!
    A must have for any collector. All the master artists are in this one. Frazetta, Morrow, Crandall, Ditko, Torres, just to name a few. Most of the stories are written by Archie Goodwin. Very good issue.

    CREEPY ARCHIVES IS SUPERB! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

    This book has some neat surprises! First the introduction is by Roy Thomas. Anytime RT writes an intro you know it's good and he knows what he's talking about! It was pages of pure joy! Another neat surprise was a famous artist who is doing amazing work today had his Creepy Fan Club art posted in Creepy #10 when he was in high school - Simply Amazing! These Creepy Archives is a great way to go back in time to the mid sixties and re-read these excellent stories and excellent art. Some more neat surprises are some full page editorials and pictures of a feature artist and/or writer; Everything from where they were born, how they got into the business, and what they were currently doing. It is fascinating stuff. These guys are now in their seventies and eighties and I bet still having fun! These Creepy Archives by Dark Horse are for everyone - young and old alike, old and new readers! Enjoy!
