Boing Boing

•Culture and entertainment blog

“Rediscovering these [strips] in the Dark Horse collections reminds me not only of the ghastly fun these stories were, but just how weird the 1970s really were … Avoiding the heavy hand of the Comics Code, Creepy and Eerie enjoyed freedom and there is fun “wink-wink” sensibility with all the nudity, gore, and occult scares … It’s the artwork, however, that makes these volumes worth owning … [these editions] contain enough great content to keep you poring over them wide-eyed, much like I did when I was a kid.” – Peter Bebergal

“The lovingly reproduced archives Dark Horse puts out are a result of the influential nature of Creepy on many of the top names in horror today – and they really brought it with getting some of the top names in comics to work on these stories.”
