When Warren Publishing wanted to put out a black and white horror mag companion for their successful CREEPY, they chose the name EERIE. Unfortunately, so had another publisher, and in order to beat the competition and gain the legal rights to the name, Warren slapped together a few CREEPY stories, cobbled a cover featuring the new logo, and got their version of EERIE # 1 to the stands first. The rest, as they say, is history. So EERIE # 2, in 1966 was in truth the real first issue, but that didn't matter much because those first few issues were essentially just like CREEPY -- great art, great stories.
This one is from the renowned and capable Alex Toth. In the story by Archie Goodwin, obsessive art collector's think they have found the perfect artist...or have they? Heh heh...
Here is...VISION OF EVIL!
