warren horror magazines

As Halloween grows ever closer, I'm starting to roll out the really good stuff. Here are some selections from Warren's horror magazines, "Creepy" and "Eerie." With the exception of E.C. Comics in the 1950s, Warren was THE name is horror comics. "Creepy" and "Eerie" both began publication in 1965, and continued into the early 1980s. Warren's publications featured some of the top artists and writers in comics (a few are represented below). In addition to their two main horror mags, they also published "Vampirella," "1984" and reprints of Will Eisner's "The Spirit." Tomorrow I'll be focusing specifically on one of Warren's top artists, Richard Corben, but for now, enjoy these pages by Tom Sutton, Neal Adams, Bernie Wrightson, Steve Ditko, Mike Ploog, Dave Cockrum and Wally Wood...

First up, the cover for Creepy #22, by Tom Sutton...
