Creepy #16 - Jeff Jones (1st start), Neal Adams, Steve Ditko art, Frank Frazetta cover

Frank Frazetta
Creepy v1 #16, 1967 - For killing a panther, an arrogant hunter receives a curse from a jungle goddess. Frank Frazetta paints her eerie portrayal on the cover, while Neal Adams opts for a more contemporary version for the interior. Drawn with great skill, this story was later reprinted in >Eerie #125. Jeff Jones' prehistoric tale is his first professional start in comics. It's crudely drawn but also hints at his future potential. This tale was later reprinted in Creepy #29 and #103. Steve Ditko tells of an artist whose monster drawing comes to life. Enthusiastically drawn, the story lacks the dimension of other magazine efforts. Other artists in this Warren bronze age horror magazine include Dan Adkins, Joe Orlando and Reed Crandall. This is number 3 of 5 Creepy issues with Adams art and/or covers, number 1 of 2 Creepy issues with Jones art and/or covers (not including reprints), number 12 of 15 Creepy issues with Frazetta art and/or covers (not including reprints) and number 8 of 8 Creepy issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints).
