More About the Author

I am a comic book writer who was first published in 1971, while still a junior high school student ("The Trap," published in EERIE #36). I wrote several stories for Warren Publications' CREEPY, EERIE and VAMPIRELLA magazines, including creating the character, CHILD, with Rich Corben. CHILD's first appearance was in EERIE #57. I moved to DC Comics where I initially wrote for the company's mystery line, including HOUSE OF MYSTERY and SECRETS OF HAUNTED HOUSE. My story for SOHH #17, "Papa Don," was included in a "best stories of 1979" collection from DC. I later created JEMM SON OF SATURN for DC, illustrated by Gene Colan, and wrote all 12 issues of the original maxi-series. In 1986, at the request of DC Editor-in-Chief Dick Giordano, I began developing ideas for updating Wonder Woman. I worked on that for several months with editor Janice Race before being joined by artist George Perez. In 1987, the first edition of the new WONDER WOMAN was published, and I co-wrote the first two issues along with George. I am also the author of a graphic novel published by DC, ME AND JOE PRIEST. And yes, I have a day job. I am currently living in Connecticut, working as a senior writer for an insurance company.

Jose Bea also had some good stories but my favorite was "The Accursed Flower".

Highly recommended, this is the Creepy that is remembered by most and the art stands up today and well into tomorrow ...

Beginning with issue 49, the stories are longer and more complex, moving from 6 or 8 pages to 10 and 12 pages each.

...and in the process looses some of the magic that permeated much of the earlier issues. During this period of production in the early 70's Warren begins to shoot for a more mature and intellectual audience. In my opinion this is when the fun begins to fade. Yes, yes...I know that the majority of readers see this period as the golden age, and a lot of great stuff did come out of this period, but the greatest artists Warren ever employed are now or soon will be in the past. Still, Uncle Creepy, along with Eerie and Vampirella, were the highlight of my youth, and there is much here in this archival volume to remember with great affection!

W. B. Dubay has clearly taken over the Art Direction in this volume and there is a new look for the Warren magazines. (I like the older look better). Unfortunately, the letters pages are less fun to read...and I blame Dubay for that. I seriously dislike Dubay's illustration and thankfully there is only one example of his work in this volume.

Beginning with issue 49, the stories are longer and more complex, moving from 6 or 8 pages to 10 and 12 pages each. "Forgive Us Our Debts" in issue 50 expands to 18 pages long, and it is a visual masterpiece!

As I see it, anything illustrated by Tom Sutton is a thrill! He was a master at what he did. There are two tales by Sutton and I thoroughly enjoyed them both. Richard Corben has only one story in this volume, but it is wonderful. "Land of the Bone" illustrated by Maroto is stunning! Although the writing in this particular story falters a little bit near the end, the story left an indelible impression on me long ago and it is fantastic to revisit it on the crisp white archival paper now available to publishing.

Format: Hardcover
First the three covers by Sanjulian are superb. In my opinion the dust jacket should have been the 50th issue one with the "gang" sitting/standing around the skull birthday cake. On the bakc there is a smaller version of the painting without the blurbs and this one is among the best Sanjulian has ever done., and that is saying a lot. The other two covers are quickies, apparently the mail service from Spain wasn't the greatest so the second cover was an unused Famous Monsters cover (according to rumor) and the fourth one is a grid iron composite of previous covers (nifty looking even by today's standards).
Now the comics...Richard Corben (American)is beginning to flex his artistic muscle, but is not one of Warrens shining stars ..yet. Jose Bea (Spanish)steals and wins the show, hands down. No other Warren artist was better than Jose Bea, and he contributed a lot to this volume. it is a shame that no volume of his work was ever collected, as his art is chilling and masterful, and his later work for Eerie was incredibly innovative without being dumb.
Well this volume hits the ground running and doesn't stop. Highly recommended, this is the Creepy that is remembered by most and the art stands up today and well into tomorrow ...

This Archive has some interesting stories. I think that this volume shows the emergence of Estaban Maroto as a top artist. He contributes some very good stores ("Cross of Blood" and "Forgive Us Our Debts" with the latter story being 18 pages long. Jose Bea also had some good stories but my favorite was "The Accursed Flower". There are two stories drawn by the legendary Reed Crandall. Tom Sutton throws in a disgusting story called "The Beginning". Sutton can make a picture of a child eating cereal look gross! The story that best connected with me was "This Burden, This Responsibility" written by Steve Skeates. Written in 1972, it's amazing to view this concept of the work place in 2011. I did not enjoy the covers this time around. I wish Dark Horse would use Frazetta's Creepy covers from issues 7, 9 or 10 in the future. I see that they are using his cover from Issue 3 for Archive 11. While not bad, I think it doesn't compare to these other masterpieces. I do give credit to DH for not reprinting issue 48. Issue 48 was an issue of all reprints and I'd rather have quality over quantity. I gave this one 4 stars because it just didn't have that many stories that blew me away. There is a lot of good stuff and if this is the beginning of Warren's golden era, then there is a lot to look foward to.
