Creepy #2 - Frank Frazetta art & cover, Al Williamson art

Frank Frazetta
Creepy v1 #2, 1965 - Frank Frazetta draws a brief history of the werewolf, summarizing events with rich, painterly images. His coinciding cover is less effective, due to its static quality. Al Williamson's tale follows a pair of movie location scouts into a remote, abandoned town. His panel-within-a-panel approach (see interior page below), combined with precision linework, results in an uncommonly sophisticated work. Other artists in this issue include Joe Orlando, Reed Crandall and Angelo Torres. This is number 2 of 7 Creepy issues with Williamson art and/or covers and number 2 of 13 Creepy issues with Frazetta art and/or covers.
