Been digging Eerie Vol. 8. The artwork in these and the newer Creepy volumes has a very European influence, and I really enjoyed the "Stranger in Hell" story in the Eerie volume.

There's also a "definitive collection" of Bernie Wrightson's work from Creepy and Eerie from Dark Horse. B&W and color pages, covers, etc.

I bought a number of volumes earlier this year but am currently taking a break. They're expensive! So far I own Creepy Archive 1,2,7-9 and Eerie Archives 1,2,5,6. I'll probably buy some more next spring or ask for a few for Christmas.

I think you have a pretty comprehensive look at the series so far. If you are choosing where to fill any holes, I wouldn't focus on backfilling the collection. Creepy 10 and Eerie 8 are where I'm noticing a change in direction and often in artistic variance. Might be worth investing in where the books move to next.

I grew up reading both series so I know all about them. I still own about 50 or so of the original issues. The gaps I have are there because those Volumes are loaded with reprints and while I may eventually get around to them I wouldn't cry myself to sleep knowing that they've gone out of print.

I should have re-visited this thread sooner. I made horror-based comics my #1 interest at Comic-Con back in July. I attended the Creepy/Eerie panel, and that was a lot of fun. They had some great giveaways, but it was all based on trivia questions that I had no clue on. One guy was a real fanatic, and took most of the prizes. And it wasn't like he was being a dick about it either; once he won a couple, he stopped answering the questions so other people would have a chance. But no one else raised their hand, so he'd eventually chime in so that they'd have a winner.

I didn't get any of the archive volumes there though. Most were being sold at list price. I'd be better off on Amazon. I did find some vintage sellers though, and picked up a couple of individual issues from the 80s I think. I still have to go through my haul.

Finally, I got the first collection of the "new" Creepy from Dark Horse. Read a couple of stories so far, and it's not bad.

I do hope to get more Archive Collections, once I find them at a reasonable price, and I've whittled down my reading stack a bit.

Check out this upcoming release:

Eerie Presents: Hunter


Quote:
Son of a mutant general and a human mother, Hunter is a half-breed warrior who fights for survival on a weird, irradiated alternate Earth. Cursed to remain apart from humanity, Hunter still protects the defenseless with the hope that mankind will someday rise from barbarism and rule again! A perfect synthesis of fantasy and science-fiction storytelling, Eerie Presents: Hunter features the artwork of Paul Neary and collects the stories of all three incarnations of the Hunter character. With a new introduction by Dark Horse Comics publisher Mike Richardson, this deluxe hardcover also includes all color Hunter covers, a full-color bonus story, and all Hunter spot art pieces and guest appearances that ran in the original Eerie magazine run!
Sounds fun! Anyone familiar with this character?

232 pages, hardcover, $19.99--releasing in April 2012.



aside: check out the cover art for Vol. 10:



To Catch a Werewolf?

Eerie Archives Vol. 9



Dig that cover art. The Esteban Maroto art is top-shelf, too.

Creepy Archives Vol. 12



Haven't had a lot of time to dig into this one, but it's worth noting that Richard Corben has a color sequence in here, which is really fun.

Upcoming releases:

Creepy Vol. 13 (July) features contributions from John Severin (RIP).

Creepy will also do a collection to spotlight Richard Corben's work in July:

Quote:
Over 300-pages of timeless terror from a master storyteller! Horror comics visionary and coloring pioneer Richard Corben has been a voice of creativity and change for over four decades. For the first time ever, Corben's legendary Creepy and Eerie short stories and cover illustrations are being collected into one deluxe hardcover! With an informative foreword by artist and comic-book colorist Jose Villarrubia - who also provides color restoration - this volume features Richard Corben's original stories, Edgar Allan Poe adaptations, and collaborations with comic-book writers Bruce Jones, Bill DuBay, Doug Moench, Gerald Conway, and others!
Sounds goooooood!

About where does this fall in year-wise? I read Eerie Archive #4, from the 60s, and it was a little too tame for my liking. But I recently read a Creepy issue from 1980, and it had a little more edge. I'd like more of those.

There are five issues per volume, so I'd put Volume 13 sometime in the mid 70s.

The 1980s issues of Eerie/Creepy were mostly reprinted material from earlier issues, if memory serves.

Eerie Archives Vol. 10



Maybe my least favorite cover so far, but this is absolutely knock-out inside. Wow. The artwork has become so sophisticated @ this point (1973). Plenty of variety in the stories and styles; really happy with where this series is at this point.

Plus! Two full-color "board game" spreads are included.

I received an early look at colorist Jose Villarrubia's lengthy and entertaining introduction to Creepy Presents Richard Corben. Wow! Incredibly exhaustive and filled with educational footnotes, the essay covered Corben's incredible early catalog. I learned a lot and it gave me plenty to hunt for in terms of back issues and previous collections. If you are a fan of Corben's, hot damn, you are in for a treat with this book.



Releases next month from Dark Horse.
