Creepy Trading Cards

As a magazine publisher Warren Publishing was born out as a result of the infamous comic book code of the 50s which made the genre a bit too family friendly: Along with sister publications like Eerie and Vampirella, Creepy magazine kept alive the tradition of horror comics from 1964 until 1983. Next year on January 27th, 2010 Dark Horse will be publishing a set of trading cards based upon covers of the magazine.

The boxed set will include 42 covers, and 8 cards that feature campy ads from the publication. I’m not sure which artists they picked for the covers, but I can’t wait to see these these as they represent a who’s who of that era. The promotional info for this series indicates we’ll get to see covers from Jack Davis, Frazetta, Richard Corben and Ken Kelly: However I also hope to see the likes of Wally Wood, Alex Toth and Neal Adams represented in the deck:
