Appendix F: Miscellaneous Lists and Trivia

My 5 favorite Ajax/Farrell reprints

  1. Hair Yee-eee (Tales of Voodoo v2n1) - Some may find it downright silly, but I love this whacked out tale of a boy whose hair is a living being.

  2. Nightmare Merchant (Terror Tales v1n7) - One of Ajax's best with an excellent plot about a couple who find that their new home is on a blood delivery route for vampires

  3. Stretching Things (Weird v2n8) - This Ditko classic may be early, but it's my favorite of his pre-code horror stories.

  4. Experiment in Terror (Tales From the Tomb v1n10) - From the sick premise of a doctor starving people to see if hunger is stronger than love to the gruesome ending, this one's a delight.

  5. Terror Below (Weird v3n1a) - While the story is so-so, I include this one for seer gore. Where else but pre-code horror could you see people eaten alive by crabs?

My 10 favorite original art stories

  1. Screaming Hell (Cirilo Munoz, Horror Tales v7n1) - A favorite not primarily because of the art or the story (though I found both excellent) but because this one scared the wits out of me as a 10-year old. I didn't have many Eerie magazines as a kid, but the ones I did, I remembered. I could still recall details of this story 30 years after I read it. Domingo Mandrafina also took a turn at this one, but I prefer the Munoz version.

  2. The Slimy Snakeman (Larry Woromay?, Tales of Voodoo v3n2) - Another one I remember reading as a kid. This one also features one of my favorite scenes, the carnival sideshow. I also remember feeling really sorry for the monster at the end.

  3. Voodoo Terror (Chic Stone, Tales of Voodoo v3n1) - Blood Bath and The Slimy Mummy seem to have more fans, but for sheer gore, give me this Chic Stone classic.

  4. Swamp Monsters (Dick Ayers, Tales From the Tomb v2n2) - A story that doesn't really showcase Ayers' art, as there are too few panels of pure gore

  5. Satan's Warlock (Ruben Marchionne, Weird v5n5) - While they are not very well liked by most fans, Fawcett is one of my favorite pre-code publishers and this is one of my favorite stories of theirs. And I like Marchionne's art better than the original.

  6. Food For Ghouls (?, Tales From the Tomb v2n6) - A typical example of Mysterious Adventures at its best demonstrating one of their trademark (OK, actually it was E.C.'s trademark) gore endings.

  7. The Sewer Werewolves (Dick Ayers, Weird v4n1) - It wasn't the best of the pre-code monsters-in-the-Paris-sewers stories, but Ayers' art makes up for it.

  8. Satan's Blood Bath (Alberto Macagno, Tales From the Tomb v4n1) - One that really makes use of the carnival theme. Plus I love the panel where the protagonist encounters his transformed daughter.

  9. Horror With Fangs (Fernand, Tales of Voodoo v7n6) - I love the idea that grocery stores bring out their vampire merchandise in the wee hours of the morning.

  10. Valley of Hell (Martha Barnes?, Terror Tales v7n1) - Barnes didn't do much work for Eerie, and I liked what she did, but it's the plot of this one, rather than the art, that I enjoy most.

My 5 favorite Eerie covers

  1. Weird v3n2 (May 1969, Bill Alexander) - A wonderful combination of gore and humor.

  2. Weird v5n1 (Feb 1971) A surgical team operates on a man who has turned into a horrid red monster.

  3. Weird v3n1b (Feb 1969, Bill Alexander) - Another Alexander classic (if it is him). the red background works perfectly with the cartoony art.

  4. Witches Tales v1n7 (July 1969) - A classic gore cover. Plus the little one-eyed creature cracks me up

  5. Terror Tales v6n2 (Apr 1974, Oscar Novelle?) - Novelle's covers always featured bright colors that didn't always work for me. This one did.

1. From which pre-code publishers did Eerie use the most material?
Following are the publishers from which Eerie reprinted/reworked material, along with the approximate number of Eerie stores that were drawn from theses sources. Note that in these totals, some Eerie stories are counted under more then one publisher (i.e when Ajax reprinted Comic Media material or material from earlier non-horror publishers like Fox and Universal). If a story was reprinted by Eerie multiple times with different titles and the same art, it is only counted once.

Listed in descending order by number of stories:

Ajax/Farrell 272

Harvey 193

Ace 61

Comic Media 42

Story 41

Quality 34

Gillmor 25

Avon 16

Prize 15

Trojan 10

Toby 10

Standard 11

Fawcett 7

St. John 7

Star 5


Fiction House 4

Superior 4

Gilberton 3

Universal 2+

Fox 1+

2. Who were Eerie's most prolific artists?

The following list includes the artists to whom I've credited a dozen or more stories and the number of stories I've attributed to them. These numbers are very tentative as many of the art identifications are speculative. Unlike the other lists, in this list if a story was reprinted multiple times with the same art and a different title, it is counted multiple times.

  1. Antonio Reynoso (88)

  2. Oscar Fraga (78)

  3. Walter Casadei (70)

  4. Cirilo Munoz (61)

  5. Larry Woromay (39)

  6. Dick Ayers (30)

  7. Enrique Cristobal (29)

  8. Ruben Marchionne (24)

  9. Alberto Macagno (19)

  10. Domingo Mandrafina (19)

  11. Oscar Stepancich (17)

  12. Torre Repiso (16)

Note that this does not include stories credited generally to "Iger Shop" (202). If Ezra Jackson's text illustrations were counted, he would rank in the top 3. If Oscar Novelle's cover work were included, he would also make the list.

3. Which stories did Eerie reprint the most?

  • Eerie reprinted The Dead Demons 9 times (technically, they printed it once then reprinted it 8 more times).

  • Heads of Terror , Satan's Cat, and Werewolf [W v4n4] were reprinted 8 times each.

  • The Vampire Lives, Vampire [WT v2n5], Devil's Plague, Dead Witch, and The Blackness of Evil were reprinted 7 times each.

Note that if a story is reprinted with the same art and a different title, this is included in the reprint totals but if it is reprinted with different art it isn't

At the other end of the spectrum, there were a number of stories that Eerie printed only once. (though it may seem like they reprinted every story multiple times).
4. What story titles did Eerie reuse the most?
Eerie Publications had the annoying habit of printing multiple stories with the exact same title. The most extreme examples are the following.

  • "Vampire" was used for six different stories. In addition, "The Vampire" was used for two stories, "The Vampires" for two, and "Vampires" for one.

  • "Monster" was used for five different stories and " The Monster" for another five. "The Monsters" was used for one story.

  • "The Mummies was used for five different stories. In addition, "Mummies" and "The Mummy" were used for one story each.

  • "Werewolf" was used for five different stories and "The Werewolf" for one.
