Creepy Magazine

Inspired by earlier comic books such as Tales from the Crypt, and Creepy, hosted by “Uncle Creepy,” the magazine printed stories of horror and suspense that were specifically banned under the Comics Code Authority of 1954, and included stories of werewolves and vampires. Creepy featured legendary artists and writers, including Frank Frazetta, Archie Goodwin, and Al Williamson, whose work previously graced the pages of EC Comics titles.
