Praise for the Creepy and Eerie Archives:
“Dark Horse’s Creepy Archives collection is about fun, spine-tingling suspense, and hair-raising horror, but it is also about truth, and so it fearlessly depicts the truth of its time, and whether for better or worse, it’s part of comics history.” –Fanbase Press
“They just don’t make ’em like this anymore.” –AIPT Comics
“The book is a proverbial must-have for serious horror readers and collectors. If you’ve no prior experience with Eerie but are perhaps interested in the history and legacy of horror in relation to the comic book medium, this book makes these extremely difficult to find issues available, prettier than ever.” –The Book Reporter
