Maturing nicely with amazing color art! Oct. 2 2011
By Dean Wirth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
To me Creepy was always #1 in the Warren Universe. It retained the one - shot story model -Eerie and Vampirella were by now doing episodic series-
Sanjulian offers all three covers (the dust jacket is from a Frazetta from Creepy #3, maybe they couldn't get an unobstructed Sanjulian cover) and they are good ones, the fourth is a composite of the inside color stories. Auraleon, Maroto, Jose Bea and Ramon Torrents offer most of the interior artwork (these Spanish artists added an old world eeriness and graphic sex and gore to the storylines).
The color is amazing
There are two color stories in this volume, which are well done, but coloring Corben's story would have been a better choice (that would come later).
Tome Sutton offers "It!' , which became a series in Eerie later, and Richard Corben's tongue in cheek color offering is gruesome and funny at the same time.
This is the best of both worlds, color and glorious black and white and tonal greys, the inclusion of color, with the maturing of the magazine in leaps and bounds, has improved an already stellar sampling or art in comics.
Screw John Landis...this is awesome stuff! July 9 2013
By Keith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Outside of John Landis' foreword I loved this collection just as I have loved all the others. Credit to Dark Horse for printing the Landis foreword where he basically says Warren stories were just EC ripoffs but felt more sleazy and exploitative. He finishes by giving some credit to the presentation but comes off as a bit of an ass to me. I guess you can certainly say he gave his honest opinion though...while he said he can admire them more now it is odd they chose to have some Creepy hater give the foreword in the first place.
Anyway, the art is excellent as always. You get some stories that are written better than others, but overall the collection is extremely entertaining. Dark Horse has done a fine job as usual and I hope they keep up the great work. I love EC too, but put Creepy right there with them even if Creepy was following EC's lead. Buy and enjoy!

Creepy in Color! Oct. 1 2011
By Jason Kerr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Archives 11 covers issues 51-54 of Creepy. I will admit that any Warren magazine is usually better than the competition but I just felt that there were not enough great storylines in this archive. That doesn't mean that this volume isn't worth owning because there are some interesting things to look at. If this volume was based on artwork alone, the rating would be 5 stars. The current line up of artists were doing an excellent job of cranking out the work. We are teased with an 8 page color advertisment for Dracula, a 120 page color book published by Warren for the kingly sum of 5 bucks at the time. Esteban Maroto did the honors and what a difference to see his work in full color. Later in the archive, Maroto does the color honors again with the story "Descent Into Hell". It seems like Warren, acting on the feedback from fans going back to 1964, gambled that fans would enjoy some color in the magazines but he also knew he had a loyal base who loved black and white art. In a way, it was a happy medium for everyone. As much as I love the new group of artists, I love it when a golden oldie turns up and Reed Crandall has two submittals. 3 stories to comment on. First is an absolute farce as drawn by Richard Corben. "The Slipped Mickey" is horror done tongue in cheek and this story should be read for laughs. The 2nd story which provides an interesting concept is "The Last Hero" written by Steven Skeates. This is a Sci-Fi story about two groups of people. The first group has made the planet into a utopia with computers doing all the work and these people are free to pursue their pleasures. The other group is a bunch determined to destroy the computers and revolt because leading a life of pleasure is not what God wants. Well, with the machinery getting destroyed every night, someone has to try and put a stop to this. I'll leave the rest of the storyline to you, the readers. Finally, the most horrifying story in my opinion is "Freedom's Just Another Word" (story by Bill Dubay). Racism is tackled head on and realistically, there are true elements of evil presented as the story goes along. This story presents a rare opportunity to read a story that may not have been printed elsewhere other than a Warren magazine. To close, I commend Dark Horse for another beautiful archive book and eagerly await future editions.

A worthy addition to any serious graphic novel archive Jan. 12 2012
By GraphicNovelReporter.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Creepy is one of those flawlessly beautiful, classic comics that you wish every comic was like. While it's true that most Silver or Bronze age comics have some classic kitsch charm, the transcendent quality of Creepy and its ilk (sister publications like Vampirella and Eerie) place it as a series that accomplished far more than its simple name implied. Escaping from the oppressive structure of the Comics Code Authority by presenting itself as a "newsstand magazine" rather than a "comic," Creepy was able to explore things that other graphical modes of storytelling of the time could not.

By issue 51, Creepy had already reached its stride and had attracted many of the finest artists in the business: Sanjulian, Frazetta, Esteban Maroto, Tom Sutton, and many others who were masters of the black-and-white page, exhibiting masterful and exciting line work. Most of Creepy's artists focused on a more realistic, textured approach than their superhero-centric peers, making these pages a unique experience among comics of this era. Faces are emotive, zombie skin puckers and bloats, and damsels are pale and smooth as silk, no matter who is drawing them for any given story.

Of course, most written horror tales have to work very hard to evoke any sense of real fear, so Creepy instead thrives on creating atmosphere: a sense of trailing dread that emerges from a long night reading about ghosts, demons, vampires, and the occasional science fiction dystopia. Nothing has a happy ending, but every moment of it is completely beautiful. It's that dissonance between dread and beauty that follows the reader well beyond the pages and is a signature for the genre.

Dark Horse presents these collections in glorious, huge hardcover format--far larger than your average comic collection. Everything is preserved, including the original covers in full color, the occasional color story, letters pages, and ads for all manner of eclectic horror memorabilia (prompting one to hunt down some of the more interesting "scary" LPs of the 1970s). This manner of collection, from cover to cover, truly delves into what it must have been like to read these issues back when they were first released, revealing a wide world of neat stuff for which any young nerd or horror enthusiast would salivate. Glossy, white pages accentuate this artwork even more crisply than the original pulp pages would have.

Parents and librarians beware: These pages contain a fair amount of blood, gore, and occasional nudity. Of course, these are the things that make these stories really good, when the creeping sense of uneasiness isn't dominating them. While this whole series is designed with the collector in mind, it also perfectly preserves some of the best drawn pages from the past 50 years, making it a worthy addition to any serious graphic novel archive.

Esteban Maroto in color Nov. 3 2011
By Groessler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Love this book, the art is great, the stories are Epic, the covers are awesome. Anybody that give this a 3 starer needs glasses. The Dracula ad, in color, in one word "Beautiful". I can't wait until the 12th edition comes out. Reed Crandall and Sanjulian are in this Book too.
