Cover Gallery #2: Creepy and Eerie Magazine

Eerie Magazine

Is there anything on this earth that can compare to the Creepy and Eerie magazine covers? In terms of sheer creativity and artistic finesse, there's nothing even close.  Recruiting the talents of Frazetta and Corben, Warren put together a triad of magazines (Vampirella, Eerie and Creepy) that brought back the full vigor and punch of those early twentieth century pulps.

The resolution on the scans is okay; I didn't scan them myself.  They're certainly worth a look, though.  If you don't feel like downloading, take a look at a selection of examples of the greatness that was Warren publications.

  1. Love these! Warren Publications had so many great magazines. I inherited a small handful of these from my father, and although they are in poor shape, I enjoy them more and more with every read.

  2. Sadly, after Archie Goodwin left Warren, the writing was rarely up to the level of the illustrations and by the end, most of the stories were barely readable at all to me.

  3. Eerie, Creepy & Vampirella were my secret life in the early 70s--my mom considered 'em pornographic so while most 12-14 year old guys were hiding Playboys under their bed, I had my mattress stuffed with Warren publications!

    I'd sell my soul to go back...

  5. Sorry was about to ask a goofy question.. But I did want to know do you know the artist who did the 50th anniv cover.

  6. I have that last one with the mummy and the family framed on my wall. I smile every time I look at it. It's one of the few non Famous Monsters covers that Basil Gogos did for Warren.

  7. This "Esther"-like little blonde girl holding her strange toy doll is one of the coolest and most evocative picture I've seen on the web for years... Thanks for uploading, dude !
