... or the importance of being Corben.

Long before Richard Corben arrived on the scene, comic books were produced following the following pattern: once the artist finished inking his work (which was done either by brush or pen, and sometimes both), his work was shot and colored, and then coded according to a color chart. Each of the four colors used for printing had three or four variants, which when mixed with each other, would total from 62 to 122 different colors. These colors, however, had to be "seperated" at the printers. The method for doing this was by applying a variant of a chosen color on an acetate (a sort of transparent sheet or film) corresponding to one of the four colors. This was done with an opaque red-brownish color, through which no light could pass through. These acetates where then shot through a coarse dot screen, which when printed gave those tiny dots we see in the old comic books wherever color was printed on. And this was the norm for coloring comic books for many years. Actually this method, or rather the printing, gave artist Roy Lichtenstein an idea for reproducing comic book panels on large canvasses and making a fortune out of it (while comic book artists continued to starve).

During the sixties Corben was working as an artist/animator/cameraman for a Kansas City industrial film company, where he had also experimented with this four color process by using acetates. Wouldn't it be great if instead of applying the brown opaque color on the acetates with a brush, he could use an airbrush instead to obtain a more photo-realistic rendering? At the time, Corben was also moonlighting by selling some of his work to the underground comics, even if he was some sort of anomaly there, as he didn't do drugs, have long hair or was even anti-establishment.

Format: Hardcover
Dark Horse Comics has compiled together the best stories from comic book artist Richard Corben that appeared in the Creepy and Eerie series. I requested to review an Advanced Reader's Copy from NetGalley because Richard Corben is from my home state of Missouri, and I was aware of his fun and weird illustrations. Besides from the artwork, Richard also wrote some of the stories that he illustrated.

This edition includes the following stories:

Frozen Beauty; A Tangible Hatred; The Golden Sun Disks of the Incas; Astrology; Friedhelm the Magnificent; The Slipped Mickey Click Flip; Lycan Klutz; The Low Spark of High Heeled Noise!; Change ...Into Something Comfortable; Bless Us Father; The Hero Within; Terror Tomb; Judas; Demon in the Cockpit; Angel Shy of Hell!; Pinball Wizard; The Raven; Anti-Christmas; The Oval Portrait; Shadow; Unprovoked Attack on a Hilton Hotel; The Believer; In Deep; The Mummy's Victory; Instinct; Bowser; Bookworm; The Pest!; Bright Eyes!; Wizard Wagstaff; Child Part 1; Child Part 2: Mind of the Mass!; The Butcher Part 1: Forgive Us Our Trespasses; The Butcher Part 2: Bye-Bye Miss American Dream: Within You ...Without You Part 1; Within You ...Without You Part 2: Time and Time Again; You're a Big Girl Now; Within You ...Without You Part 3:Years & Mind Forever; and A Woman Scorned.

This is a wild combination of comics from Richard Corben, in the tradition of Tales from the Crypt. His illustrations of the creatures are very detailed, almost lifelike, like if they could pop out of the pages. These stories are definitely not for younger readers as some of Richard illustrations can come across as graphic and disturbing, including some nudity. If I had read a few of these tales when I was a kid, I wouldn't be able to sleep.

Creepy Presents Richard Corben

As a long-time fan of the artist Richard Corben, I was absolutely floored by this collection of his complete works for Warren's Creepy and Eerie titles. Yes, some of the stories are dated and corny (particularly, the amateurish "A Tangible Hatred"), but Corben's artwork is uniformly brilliant, whether it is his pen and ink work, his airbrushed black and white work, or his spectacular, groundbreaking color work. The stories are varied and feature some wonderful marriages of words to images, particularly his collaborations with writer Bruce Jones, but the primary reason anyone should pick this up is for Corben's masterly artwork. Corben experiments with angles and technical tricks most comic artists wouldn't attempt and his experimentation often results in pleasant surprises for his readers.

This book trumps the compilation issued by Heavy Metal of some of the same work in the late nineties and is a bargain for the price. The package is handsome and many of the tales have been painstakingly restored (by expert colorist Jose Villarrubia) using Corben's original art. At over 300 pages, the book is just large enough for fans to enjoy fine details, but not too bulky to be casually enjoyed (the way some "omnibus" editions can be). If you like comics and don't know Corben, get this while you still can. Hopefully, his awesome underground work which has become obscure will be afforded the same treatment some day. Until then, Corben novices should start here; it would be hard to find a more idiosyncratic and dynamic artist than Mr. Corben.
