“Ditko’s art is … outstanding.” – Andy Wolverton, Comics Alternative

• Dark Horse’s Creepy Archives received the 2009 Eisner Award for Best Archival Collection

Making a lasting mark on comics as the co-creator of
Spider-Man, Steve Ditko veered away from the mainstream and into darker territories at the end of the sixties, especially with his work in Creepy and Eerie!

Warring wizards, paranoid goons, persistent heroes, and otherworldly domains dominate the diverse tales in this handsome hardcover collection – with fifteen of the sixteen stories written by fellow comics icon Archie Goodwin.

• New introduction by Mark Evanier!

“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.”
