Abstract:

Six years after debuting the legendary horror movie magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland, Warren Publications suddenly took the comics world by storm in 1965 by releasing Creepy #1 before a stunned, delighted - and terrified - audience. Filled with compelling tales of terror exquisitely illustrated by many of the best artists of the day, the magazine proved to be the tip of an iceberg of horror as Warren Publishing went on to produce some of the finest comic-book stories in the history of the form. In the pages of Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella, Blazing Combat, and many other mags, readers discovered extraordinary artists and writers coming together to create extraordinary work. Then, in 1983, the company just suddenly disappeared ... In 1999, Comic Book Artist magazine published the most comprehensive history of the oft-neglected company to date in its Eisner Award-winning fourth issue. But, until now, the riveting story of Warren Publishing was incomplete. In addition to reprinting the contents of CBA #4, this volume contains many new interviews, features, articles, and the most comprehensive and exhaustive checklist ever compiled on Warren Publishing's incredible output.
