    Published by Warren publications (the makers of Vampirella), Eerie was an early forerunner of the horror revival of the early 70s.

    Getting by the comics code restrictions of the time, Eerie got away with it by not being a comic book per se, but being an oversized black and white "magazine" (that, you know, happened to also be a comic book. Shhh, don’t tell anyone.)

    It was hosted, as many horror comics and shows were back then, by "Cousin Eerie".

    Unlike most horror books of the time, this wasn’t a standard anthology, but featured the continuing adventures of Dracula, the Mummy, and new characters like The Spook.

    A lot of major comic book folks got their start on "Eerie", like editor Archie Goodwin (later a major player at Marvel and DC) and writer Louise Jones (later Louise Simonson, writer of New Mutants and X-Factor for Marvel and Superman for DC.)

    Eerie ran from 1966-1983.
