Upcoming Ditko - Eerie Archives v1

As expected, Dark Horse's reprints of the Warren horror mags shifts over to EERIE for the next volume in March of 2009. Looks like this will be up to #6 (unless for some reason they're including all of the #1 "ashcan" which is reprints from CREEPY), so will include "Room With A View", "Shrieking Man", "Black Magic" and "Deep Ruby", great stories all, and "Black Magic" is probably the pinnacle of Ditko's ink-wash work.

Dark Horse also has a collection of the first dozen issues of Marvel's INDIANA JONES comic from the 1980s. If they do a second volume it could include as much as 178 pages of Ditko.

Slithering upon the heels of Dark Horse's archive collections of the seminal horror comics magazine Creepy comes its terror-filled cousin publication Eerie! Collected for fans for the first time ever, and packaged in the same amazing oversized format as our Creepy Archives, Dark Horse Comics has taken great, gruesome care in presenting this groundbreaking material to readers who have been waiting decades to get their claws on it. Eerie magazine, like its killer kin Creepy, features work from many of the masters of comics storytelling. For fans of spectacular spookiness, mind-bending sci-fi, and astonishing artwork, the Eerie Archives library is a must have.

  1. I am not aware of DH doing any reprint of Marvel's Indiana Jones comics.

    They have published 2 'Omnibus' volumes of the Indiana Jones comics that Dark Horse published.

  3. Ok.

    For some reason, DH's own site isn't show these upcoming books. This is, like, the 2nd or 3rd book coming from DH that you only know about from listings at amazon.com.

    I would think the chances are good for DH to continue with these reprints.
