*Vintage Magazine-Sized Comics: In the 1960s, enterprising publisher Jim Warren, inspired by the success of classic monster movies on TV, decided to satiate the American public’s growing taste for terror by launching a line of horror comics. But there was that pesky censorship body, the Comics Code Authority. What to do? Why, launch them as magazines, aimed at an adult audience and not subject to the Comics Code! Beginning with Creepy, followed shortly by Eerie, Warren assembled some of the finest talents in the field, many of them alumni of the classic EC Comics line: Johnny Craig, Reed Crandall, John Severin, Wally Wood – and some ‘new guys’ named Steve Ditko, Neal Adams and Gene Colan! For the first few years – apart from an inexplicable weakness for Tony Tallarico – Warren’s publications offered the finest artwork comics had to offer, and paved the way for the eventual liberalization of the Comics Code and the success of titles such as House of Mystery. We are chuffed to present early issues of both series: Creepy from #1 VF- £50, including many from the first 25 issues and Eerie from its first distributed issue, #2 FN+ £30 (issue #1 was a never-circulated ‘ashcan’ to secure copyright). our Eerie stock includes many of the first dozen issues.
