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 #23 and >#139. Other artists in this issue include Angelo Torres, John Severin, Reed Crandall and Joe Orlando. This is number 7 of 15 Creepy issues with Frazetta art and/or covers and number 3 of 15 Creepy issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints).
