Dark Horse Creepy Archives

Saw this at Borders ($49.99), the first 5 issues are included with full color covers (man I loved those covers). I had many issues of Creepy in my youth. Vol 2 comes out December 31. Any Creepy fans out there?

Very nice volume. I didn't read Creepy back in the day, but I did recognize one of the stories, about the comic hack who tricks an artist, writer, and inker into creating his book for him, telling each of them that he's handling the other elements. I must have read it in a reprint somewhere.

I was (guess I still am) a fan of Warren Publications, from Famous Monsters to Creepy and Eerie.

I bought Creepy volume one (loved it) and pre-ordered Vol 2.
Eerie vol 1 is up for pre-order too.

Re: Dark Horse Creepy Archives

I was thinking about maybe picking some of these up and just wondered if others have picked these up over the last year.

Just wanted some opinions on the quality of the reprint but mainly...how do the stories hold up today? I read these as a kid (mainly sneaking reads in the grocery store while my parent shopped since they would never buy these for me) and have good memories of the stories as a kid. But how do they hold up reading them now as an adult?
