Preview-Creeps-04-01The Creeps Magazine is a lovely and affectionate homage to Creepy and Eerie Magazine. Folks of a certain age probably remember these magazine-sized black and white horror comic anthologies that featured intelligent stories and high class art. You could find them on almost any newsstand. Warren Publishing, the folks who gave us Famous Monsters of Filmland, published Creepy and Eerie (and Vampirella and others) from the mid 1960’s into the mid 1980’s.

Now Warrant Publishing is recreating the magic with this now-quarterly magazine that duplicates the look and feel, down to the fonts and newsprint, of the original Warren books.

Preview-Creeps-03-01I’ve raved about these comic magazines since the first issue. In the tradition of “Tales From The Crypt,” these short-form horror stories are loads of fun.

If you have a horror-comic fan in your life, this is the perfect gift. It’s new comic stories, many by some of the original Warren crew, telling all-new tales of horror and weird fiction. The first issue can be had for $19.95, plus shipping, but the three subsequent issues can be purchased for $ 4.95 each, plus shipping. For $29.99 you can subscribe to the next four issues. It’s a great and different gift idea for the comic book-reading horror fan on your gift list.
