Creepy #5

In 1964, Warren Publications started publishing a magazine that would change the horror genre forever. Creepy was at the forefront of the new wave of comic magazines and put Warren on the map. The coolest thing about this series was the awesome display of talent in each issue. In this issue alone, you have a stunning Frank Frazetta cover and interior art by such greats as Angelo Torres, Joe Orlando, Al Williamson, Reed Crandall, Alex Toth, and Gray Morrow. The book had a definite EC feel, due to the fact that people like Torres, Williamson, and Orlando all worked for that company in their heyday. All stories in this issue were written by the great Archie Goodwin, who also edited the book. It was one of his first assignments in the comic field. From October, 1965.
