Warren Magazines had several good black & white magazines, the most well known where "Creepy" and "Eerie". Most of the stories were horror, even if they were modern horror, sf horror, or fantasy horror. About half way, Eerie started to set itself apart from Creepy by running several series, many with heroes or heroic like characters: Dax the Warrior, Spook, Schreck, Child, Dracula, the time-traveling western hero the Rook, etc.

One of these was the interesting Hunter series, set in a post-apocalyptic future. The character was striking: wearing what seemed to be an USAF flight helmet and flight suit (but with a loin cloth). He was Damien Hunter, a half-breed scout (human and 'demon', not white and Indian), who fought the 'demon' hordes of the future. He has coppery skin and yellow eyes. From the artwork, I always thought he was a downed fighter pilot.

We learned that the series seemed to be set in the 21st century (when, not certain), after atomic wars created a race of mutants called 'demons' who wanted to destroy humans. The US fought against them, but seems to have collapsed into a medieval society. But Hunter fought on.

The Hunter series ran thru Eerie #52-57 (later the series was reprinted completely in Eerie #69), the last story running in color (tho reprinted here in b/w). In the story we see him fighting demons, explaining his background, before the final episodes where he faced his demon father and killed him, after dying himself. The character Schreck, who appeared in his own series in Eerie also appeared in that last story, with the demons apparently wiped out.

But then we get Hunter II.

Format: Hardcover
From the reviews, this sounded interesting, so I picked up a copy. And it is interesting -- but it also reminds me why I didn't buy the Warren magazines very often, and so missed these stories when they first ran.

Many Warren writers didn't seem to be all that concerned with consistency or with things really making sense. In the debut episode of Hunter, his oddly-shaped staff can throw a powerful electrical zap ... some of the gadgetry in his flightsuit and helmet is still operational ... there's a sentient supercomputer that has survived the crumbling of civilization -- but none of those things figures in any later chapter. Likewise, in the first episode, the humanoid mutant "demons" have dangerous psychic powers; that's mentioned just once more, and then it's forgotten about, too. In the second episode, we learn something about Hunter's origins and youth, though we never do find out how he goes from being an army scout on horseback to showing up in his trademark flightsuit and pilot's helmet. (And one starts to wonder after a while, why doesn't he just break off that bent antenna and cut away that dangling wire?) The third and fourth episodes are westerns with "demons" instead of Indians, and in the final two episodes of the original series, Hunter is teamed up with another Warren character, Schreck. In the first episode, Rich Margopoulos' narration is at times so over-written as to be almost unintelligible, and the dialogue is often "comic-booky" as well, with lines like "The raiding-pack elder -- stunned into submission! The dark-eyed one will pay most dearly for this!" and "If such, then, is my fate -- I greet it as a warrior true -- DEFIANT TO THE VERY END!" Try saying "If such, then" while one mutant is choking you and another is about to gut you.

Format: Hardcover
"Hunter" premiered in 1973, in issue 52 of Eerie, an anthology comic published by Warren. This collection includes the "Hunter" stories from issues 52 to 57 ("Hunter I"), the resurrection of Hunter ("Hunter II") in issues 67, 68, and 70 to 73 (issue 69 reprinted the entire "Hunter I" series), and three less significant stories (as noted below).

"Hunter" is essentially a science fiction horror story. Radiation spread by a nuclear war in 2001 caused mutations that gave some humans paranormal powers, leading to wars between unchanged humans and mutant humans (recast as "demons" by the superstitious unchanged). Demian Hunter is the spawn of an unchanged woman who is raped by the demons who murdered her husband. The half-human, half-demon Hunter dedicates himself to the eradication of demons who survived the demonwars.

In the first two stories, Rich Margopoulos tries too hard to be eloquent, creating instead dialog and narrative that comes across as stilted. He simplifies his prose in the third story and, not coincidentally, tells a much stronger tale. Budd Lewis writes the fourth story, apparently trying to emulate the style of the first two. The final two stories of "Hunter I" are written by Bill DuBay. They feature the best writing in the first series. DuBay created a triumphant finish to the series as Hunter seeks revenge against his demon father.

Except the series wasn't finished. Whether due to popular demand or because the Eerie writers couldn't come up with another character, Hunter was resurrected in "Hunter II." The new story begins twenty years after "Hunter I." The Earth is about to die but a scientist/wizard babbles a plan about creating a new "time shell" that will save it.
