Creepy #7 - Frank Frazetta art & cover, Alex Toth art

Frank Frazetta
Creepy v1 #7, 1965 - A vampire and werewolf battle to the death on this savage Frank Frazetta cover. The scene employs a drab color palette, but the background has a strange, ethereal quality. The artist also draws a single page on monsters around the world. Though black and white, the artwork is comparable in quality. Alex Toth’s tale is a standout of the issue, featuring a wealthy businessman and his nightmares of impalement. Along with his skillful drawings, the artist uses diagonally shaped panels to create an unsettling mood (see interior page below). This story was later reprinted in Creepy #139Toth would continue to do more innovative works for this Warren publishing. Other artists in this issue include Angelo Torres, John Severin, Reed Crandall, Joe Orlando and others.
