UNCLE 
CREEPY 




I think your magazine is 
great, just like all the other 
Warren Publications! I like 
EERIE a lot too but my very 
favorite is FAMOUS MON- 
STERS. CREEPY #21 was only 
the second issue of your book 
that I've been lucky enough to 
get. I never see it at the 
stands when I get there. My 
favorite story this time was 
"Swamped" and here's hop- 
ing you continue turning out 
a great magazine like CREEPY. 
MICHAEL REMY 
Ashland, Kentucky 



^P What's with the free 
spree on publicity ... let 
those sly guys use their own 
ad pads to push them! About 
getting a fretting folder Df my 
frightery in time . . . make 
tracks to the rack packs BE- 
FORE they get "SWAMPED" 
otherwise you'll never get your 
luck unstuck. 

I've been reading your and 
(ugh) Cousin EERIE's great 
magazines ever since the first 
issue. I'm now fifteen years 
old and still reading them 
both. My friends sometimes 
ask me why I buy your books 
and I tell them of course, it's 
my lunacy for good horror and 
science fiction stories. Your 
artists illustrate the stories 
perfectly. I enjoyed CREEPY 
#21 very much, especially 
"The Immortals" which was a 
fine tale. The cover was pretty 
good but still far from those 
that Frank Frazetta used to 
do. He's the greatest! As far 
as new stories, I'm happy to 
see that you guys are coming 
up with interesting changes. 
Keep up the gruesomely good 
work and I'll keep trying to 
convince my frantic friends to 
take up reading your terrific 
mag! 



^j&Glad you stuck by our 
muck . . . Chuck . . . and since 
those haggard hold-outs are 
bound to have found a mound 
of our moldy mags by now 
. . . watch the strange change 
we've arranged for them . . . 

CREEPY #21 didn't make 
it coverwise but you still can't 
judge a book by it's cover and 
inside I found some real sur- 
prises. One thing caught my 
eye in particular. I liked the 
little pictures of yourself next 
to the letters column, pretty 
sly Unc. I don't know how the 
other readers feel about this 
feature but I pay close atten- 
tion to all the fan letters that 
are printed. So how come 
none of mine ever made it? I 
get a big kick out of your 
sense of humor. Another hur- 
rah and welcome back to the 
CREEPY FAN CLUB. I enjoyed 
the idea of featuring a theme 
about werewolves and I pre- 
sume in upcoming issues 
you'll be doing the same with 

sters in general. Again, I won- 
der how many people pay 
attention to the fan stories 
printed. I say this because I 
read "The Choice" and 
thought it was very cleverly 
done. It would have made a 
good plot for that illustrated 
story you had about Lizzie 
Borden. By the way, putting 
the two of them together like 
that wasn't the greatest idea 
in the world. "Time-piece To 
Terror" rounded out nicely, 
a much improved issue and 
my faith has been restored in 
you, now that a new editor is 
on the scene. 

MARK TODD 
Bronx, New York 



^P So . . . you noticed the 
pretty witty cut outs of your 
itty bitty cut up ... eh . . . 
well I aim to please partner 
and that's just using my head 
to keep hitting the "mark". 
Be sure to keep your own 
blinkers blipping for more of 
my monstrous merrymaking 
and mass hysteria. 

Bring back Frazetta! Bring 
back Morrow! If not them how 
about some more of Ditko? 
Now some comments about 
recent ish #21. "Room With 
A View" was simply fantastic, 
by far the best story in the 
entire issue. Again, let's have 
more of Ditko's artwork. "Time- 
piece To Terror" was also 
very good. The other stories 
aren't even worth mentioning. 
I really hate to burden you 
with complaints but here's 
another. Lately I haven't seen 
any good vampire or ghoul 
stories or great science fiction 
tales other than "Beauty Or

jbout latching onto a few with 
your grimy paws . . . PLEASE! 
I hope this letter wasn't too 
painful but CREEPY is one of 



the few reading pleasures I 

enjoy. 

THOMAS DETORO 
Newburgh, New York 

ffil 

^» Your painstaking lead- 
dread wasn't too bad . . . lad . . . 
but me think you're missing 
the whole "point" of the mess! 
Figuring vampires and ghouls 
for good guys ... be honest 
Thomas ... if you needed a 
blood boost buddy . . . would 
you be a biddy about a b te- 
ful? But sit tight on your 
fright plight friend . . . your 
Unc has been busy bubbling 
up some new bat brew for my 
next juicy bleed feed. 



No words can describe what 
I felt when I saw the cover 
of CREEPY #21! By far the 
worst of your career since it 
began, and something which 
may help bring about it's end. 
If the rest of the mag hadn't 
been at least up to par, that 
is once you struggled past Bob 
Jenney's mess, I would have 
left you rotting on the shelf. 
Don't tell me that now we're 
going to have to swallow rot- 
ten artwork as well as those 
reprints you've been feeding 
us. Maybe there's hope for you 
yet, now that you have an- 
other editor. I'll be keeping 
an eye out tor your next is- 
sue and hope for the best. 

ARNOLD WILDER 
Lincoln, Nebraska 

^jr> While you're at it . . . 
keep the other eye in so you 
can "instantly" identify my 
next insane issue . . . Arnie 
. . . and you'll see you can 
cut out the "beefs" about my 
delicious, doom diet! 

I really love your mag! It's 
the utmost in everything in- 
cluding corn, if you know 
what I mean. I picked up is- 
sue #21 just yesterday and 
brother, after reading it, WOW! 
Although I do think the cover 
was kind of tame and, "The 
Rats In The Wall" wasn't ex- 
actly great either. Gutenberg 
Monteiro's artwork in "Time- 
piece To Terror" could have 
been much improved, it 
looked very amateurish. The 
story was great! Also, what 
was so spooky about "The 
Immortals"? Last but not 
least, I love your little remarks 
at the end of each story and 
please, make your issues 
longer. 

BRIAN SPONSLER 

g£j: 

^P Don't you think that'd 
be kinda stretching things out 
a bit Brian . . . after all if it's 
torture "racking" your minds 
on my maddening -manual now 
. . . imagine if I batter your 
grey matter with any more 
mania in just ONE copy of 
CREEPY chamber chillers! 
Why you might go completely 
. . . sane! 



Just put down issue #21 
and had to write. I didn't be- 
lieve the cover when I first 
saw it, the art was horrible, 
low grade stuff. Only the 
name CREEPY convinced me 
that it was still the same mag- 
azine. I truly hope your cov- 
ers will get better in future 
issues. I did enjoy "Loath- 
some Lore" and heaven to 
Betsy when I looked at the 
contents page what should I 
see but a new editor. Finally! 
Let's hope he brings back the 
tradition you've been sorely 
losing. This issue only fea- 
tured two reprints, a big im- 
provement and maybe soon 
all originals again? From the 
looks of things your new boy 
can write too. Nice to see the 
Fan Club Page so filled, now 
that things are rolling again. 
Am looking forward to great 
things from you again Unc. 

MIKE LISS 
^jt West Orange, New Jersey 

^rwith all those batty 
"things" cramping your cran- 
ium . . . cave comrade . . . 
how come you couldn't fig- 
ure out that this month's Fan 
frat was "filled" up now that 
we've got things "flying" 



You'n 



becoming cheap! 
TOM EVANS 
Mill Valley, Calif. 



^(r Everyone who keeps buy- 
ing and reading CREEPY even- 
taully feels that way . . . pall 
pal . . . but actually we're 
STILL 40c! It's just that pur- 
chasing all that priceless pen- 
manship for such a puny 
pittance . . . makes one ap- 
preciate how much you get 
for your money's worth. And 
just think . . . with the venom 
you save on my vile volume 
. . . you can sink your fangs 
into a coiling copy of EERIE 
and his crawling confusion 
... for the same pittance! 

You said you were cutting 
down on reprints but 1 see in 
CREEPY #21 that "Room 
With A View" was reviewed 
again. Come on will you, more 
new material and soon! Stilt, 
you're managing to keep 
above EERIE. Stories like "The 
Rats In The Wall" help keep 
you there. Tell your fat Cousin 
to shape up. 

TERRY BLESSING 
Omaha, Nebraska 

^* Than* for your blessings 
Terry but it's no contest for 
me and that sneak-tweek . . . 
EERIE! While he's busy burst- 
ing butt to ns of his bulging 
belly . . . bragging . . . I'm 
spinning winning grieve-weav- 
ery from the dread thread of 
loom.

Stumble into my STAGNANT 
SAGA SOLARIUM . . . shriv- 
eling SHRIEK SEEKERS . . 
spot a rot-cot to clot on 
while you sample an ample 
mess of guest test . . . here 
in my DRIPPING DUNGEON 
of drooling fooling. 

LARRY GOLDIN #1364, jots 
down a jarring, jackin-the- 
box of jolting journalism 
which leaves us . . . 



They're coming! Those 
sane men are coming here 
again! Night after night they 
continue their mud adven- 
ture. Last time it was Al . . . 
before him it was Frank . . . 
soon they'll have every one 
of us. What did we ever ' 
to deserve this horrible fate? 
They know we are helpless 
and even if we could fight 
back, what good would it 
do? So it continues, the hurt- 
ing and stealing, but we 
never did anything to them, 
why must they do this? How 
long before someone dis- 
covers us and helps? I re- 
member how it was, long 
before they locked me ut 
here The feel of the ni_ 
wind in my face, the free 
heaven over my head. Now 
all hope is gone, there is no 
way to warn the world out- 
side, no one to hear our 
silent cries. Only the harsh 
smack of steel against the 
ground, the shivering r 
that drowns the warmth 
from our bodies. I wonder 
when they will come for i 
I can hear them, they have 
opened the huge door ; 
soon, I know they will find 
me. How foolish to thin 
that death would bring 
peace . . . escape from the 
reality of suffering. What 
foolishness laughs that 
thought into my face as 
even now the grave this' 
lifts the lid of my coffin and 
grins evily into my sightl " " 
eyes. END 





This crafty conception of 
devilish deception comes 
from the clotted chili-quill 
of ED QUIMBY, from Or- 
lando, Florida. Could it be 
our gruesome toothsome is 
all dressed for a refue'ing 
rendenvous? Well . . . here's 
hoping he has a swinging 
■slime" and doesn't end up 



the 



ling 



"pounding" fangover from 
too many corpuscle cock- 
tails! At the rate you 
CREEPY CLUBBERS are 
flinging fright stuff at us, 
we may have to expand 
our fear facilities to accomo- 
date all your maddening, 
member mail. When submit- 
ting your dread drawings, 
try not to fold them and do 
them in ink or heavy pencil 
for best possible reproduc- 
tion. Stories should be typed 
or in ink and please, none 
written in blood, it doesn't 
read well. With any excruci- 
ating sketch or gory story, 
send along your CREEPY 
FAN CLUB number and your 



FRANK BRUNNER, CREEPY CLUBBER =44, send us this 
skull sketch of a shockingly familiar friend. Our sutured 
scoundrel seems to be sizzling about something . . . 
could be he got a charge out of being in our electrifying 
fan clan! 




SCOTT GRENIG, #2201 
sends us this sensa- 
tional sight stunner . . . 
an oozing oddity whose 
obviously somewhat of 
a DRIP.
