CREEPY has been scaring kids since your daddy's day. While
you were still a twinkle in his eye, he was staying up late at night, covered
in a blanket, with a flashlight in one hand and a CREEPY in the other. With its
twisted tales of morality, the iconic comic has been a staple of the horror
genre for many a year, entertaining both children and adults for generations.
Originally started in 1964, CREEPY has stood the test of time, and is now
widely available through the fine folks at Dark Horse comics.
Every few months, they release a new volume full of
werewolves, ghouls, and ghosts in a fine, hard-bound graphic novel. This latest
collection of CREEPY comics to be bound and printed are issues #64-#68 in CREEPY
Archive 14, and as with the previous editions, the release is yet another
frighteningly fun addition to any comic lover’s library.
The stories found within CREEPY come in short, bite-sized
yarns of strange creatures, and even stranger situations. They play on a simple
formula of karma mixed with the supernatural to bring hard-learned lessons to
those who fall under the spell of greed, hate, and jealousy. Every evil-doer
gets his comeuppance through ghostly intervention, and any who dare spread pain
and misery will see them get the same back ten-fold. While some might find pieces
a bit slow or silly for their tastes, keep in mind that these stories were
written in a time when they were still new to the audience. It is these comics
that set the precedents for horror comics now, hell, for horror in general.
These comics are full of old-school scary fun for a new-school audience that
are still as entertaining now as they were back then.
CREEPY Archive 14 features some of the biggest artist names
in comic history. The likes of Richard Corben, John Severin, and Archie Goodwin
grace the pages and in keeping with the previous volumes, 14 also faithfully
recreates the original letters published in the Dear Uncle Creepy mail section,
and even keeps the original advertisements that were run during the
publication. Each of the collections also feature fantastic, full color covers
in vivid, eye-popping clarity not only on the front cover but inside as well.
With solid writing and unforgettable art ranging from ultra-realistic to bad-acid
trips, CREEPY rightfully holds a place in comics history.
