This review is from: Creepy Presents Richard Corben (Hardcover)
When Dark Horse acquired the rights to Creepy and Eerie a few years back, there was always a question in my mind of whether or not they would actually do justice to the superlative material from the Warren library. But with the ongoing Creepy and Eerie archives and now this comprehensive Corben collection, I'm happy to report that justice has been served, big time. While I also loved the Dark Horse collection of Berni Wrightson's Warren work (who wouldn't?) it somehow left me wanting more. Well my friends, here's MORE. This book of Richard Corben stories is the most impressive collection of his work I've ever seen, and I've owned a number of previous Corben anthologies. The difference with this one is the depth of the material and the care that was taken putting it all together. The black and white stories are excellent, but the remastered color stories are even better. Some of my favorites are "Lycanklutz", "The Raven", "Shadow", "Change Into Something Comfortable" and "In Deep." It's really nice to see all these classic tales in one place (with many of them in vivid "Corben-Color") especially for the modest price tag---pretty astounding in this day and age. I also found the introduction extremely informative, as well as the assorted extras. I actually could not put this book down once I started reading it. What else can I say? This first-rate collection is essential reading for any comic-book fan who appreciates classic stories and art!
