Synopsis:
Eerie Comics" is a one-shot horror and supernatural comic from the Golden Age of Comic Books. The title was published in January 1947 by Avon Periodicals and is now recognized by comic book buffs, historians, and scholars as the first out-and-out, stand-alone horror comic book not taking its inspiration from any known source such as radio, film, the pulps, or established literature. Its sexually charged, outrč cover depicts a dagger-toting, red eyed ghoul (somewhat reminiscent of F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu) threatening a rope-bound, voluptuous young woman in a lonely and derelict moonlit place. The issue featured six stories with an adult attitude that were fairly tame in the depiction of blood, gore, violence, and the other gruesome trappings of horror fiction. One tale followed a man haunted by the ghost of a stuffed tiger; another, a shipwreck on an island infested with flesh-eating lizards; and another, a man spooked by the bloody corpse of his murdered wife. While the writers are unknown, artists include Joe Kubert, George Roussos, and Fred Kida. After its debut issue, the title went dormant but reappeared as "Eerie" issue 1 May/June 1951. The title saw a run of seventeen issues, ceasing publication with its August/September 1954. Issue 12 printed a Dracula story based on the Bram Stoker novel. Several covers featured headlights and women in bondage. Joe Orlando and Wallace Wood would be associated with the series. "Eerie" became "Strange Worlds" with issue 18, October/November 1954. [Wikipedia, 6/08]
