My Introduction to Horror Comics
Oh man, this was such a throwback. I haven't read one of these in so long! Definitely need to get my hands on some more Creepy comics. Come to think of it, I see these at my local antique shops all the time!
I wish I would come across these when I was a kid. However, my connection with Conan (both the paperbacks and the magazine). Thank the maker for family that see that light in your eye and help guide you.
I didn't get into Creepy until my late twenties when my husband introduced me. It felt like coming home!
This was a fun read, John. I'd never heard of Creepy and was never into comics as a kid, but I 100% loved thumbing through magazines like Highlights and American Girl that that found ways to weave in both educational and entertainment stuff.
The rubber fly ad reminded me of begging my mom to let me buy Sea-Monkeys from a magazine ad which turned out to be the brine shrimp living and available for free at the boat docks in Salt Lake City where I lived. Ha!
What a wonderful discovery! Not only are the comics scary, suspenseful, but also insightful!
These look so fun! Next time I go to my local comic store I'll have to keep an eye out on these and see if I can snag one.
Big Creepshow vibe
