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.

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.

This book... was interesting. I liked the concept. The art is really rough but it shows a lot of promise.. and is actually not that bad, but not that great. I recall a lot of really interesting layouts and I felt that the artist was really trying very hard and pushing the limits of his storytelling abilities at the time. For that I can really say the artist got my respect. I'm sure if the artist was doing this nowadays... he'd probably be really awesome with more years under his belt. Anyway, if you like black and white fantasy comics... you may like this. This is a ballsy release... wish there was more out there like this.

The HUNTER stories were downbeat but still entertaining, predating the "grim & gritty" landslide that was to overtake comics. Nice art by Paul Neary in the early run. The narrative could get confusing and I was not a fan of the HUNTER II reboot.

The Hunter series was beautifully drawn and well written. It's nice to have this as a complete collection. Comic book publishers: hire Budd Lewis. A writer of his talent shouldn't be selling hot dogs!

First chapter is so good. The art, the story, so much promise. Then second chapter on shows pumping out a chapter a month. I read the first chapter when I was young, and thought of all the great places this story could go, and be. I debated buying this book because I might be killing how great I thought the story could be. Some questions should be left alone. The first chapter is still great. I should have left it at that.

I heard that Dark Horse was putting this out, but couldn't BELIEVE IT!!! It's such a great idea to put the Warren characters out in their own volumes, I figured that no one would think of it but the fan geeks like me- GLAD I WAS WRONG! Dark Horse scores again with a lovely hardcover edition of the whole shebang! Great art and stories on nice glossy paper, beautiful black and white, at a waaaay affordable price.....I'd rave about this some more, but I gotta go read the damn thing NOW!!! And to the other reviewer- your page count is right, that's the correct number of pages! PEACE!!!
