Eerie v3 #3 - Frank Frazetta cover, Alex Toth, Al Williamson, Steve Ditko art

Frank Frazetta
Eerie v3 #3, 1966 - Frank Frazetta begins the issue with his frightening cover of a luminescent sea creature. Inside, Al Williamson chronicles the tale of a haunted lighthouse, rendered in his clean, contemporary style. Alex Toth tells of a unconventional architect and his unusual dream house. Most spontaneously drawn, his page layouts display a strong sense of design and pacing (this story was later reprinted in both >Creepy #139 and the Alex Toth Doodle Book). Perhaps most surprising is Steve Ditko's story of a night in a cursed hotel room. His artwork, using parallel and cross-hatched lines, has extraordinary depth and richness (later reprinted in the >Eerie v3 1972 annual). Other artists in this issue include Angelo Torres. This is number 2 of 7 Eerie issues with Frazetta art and/or covers, number 1 of 2 Eerie issues with Williamson art and/or covers and number 1 of 8 Eerie magazine issues with Ditko art and/or covers and number 2 of 5 Eerie issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints).
