Creepy #10 - Frank Frazetta cover, Steve Ditko art

Frank Frazetta
Creepy v1 #10, 1966 - Steve Ditko tells of a wealthy collector, whose determination to find a obscure  book becomes his undoing. The layouts are purposely repetitive, along intermittent panels of glazed, exhaustive eyes. The artist's high level of detail throughout is not uncommon in his magazine works. The occult theme certainly fuels his enthusiasm. While Ditko's art dazzles the eye, Frank Frazetta's cover is merely adequate in color and composition. "Collector's Edition" was later reprinted in >Creepy #27. This is number 2 of 8 Creepy issues with Ditko art and/or covers and  number 9 of 15 Creepy issues with Frazetta art and/or overs (not including reprints). Other artists in this issue include Rocco Mastroserio, Angelo Torres, Jay Taycee, Gene Colan and Gray Morrow.
