Eerie Publications


Eerie Publications (no relation to Eerie magazine, by Harris Publications, Inc) printed a series of horror magazines in the late 1960's and 70's with titles such as "Terror Tales," "Tales of Voodoo," and my personal favorite, "Weird." The cover art was nothing short of amazing, and the stories inside reinforced the ghastly scenes depicted on each front in chilling black & white, or, as the authors claimed: "chilling picto-fiction." These are some of the best works of horror art ever set to print. Fun fact: artist and illustrator Dick Ayers, major contributor to Eerie Pubs and creator of the classic story "The Dead Demons," also inked the first 20 issues of Marvel's "Fantastic Four!"

The Claw website has an awesome archive of all the Eerie Publications covers. Check them out here:
