"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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

This is printed in the same professional way that the EERIE/CREEPY archives are, but thinner as it just contains the Hunter stories and a brief essay. Read morePublished on December 9, 2012 by Chris Duckworth
