The Warren Companion is the ultimate compendium
to the great comics of Warren Publishing, examining all the titles
including Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella, Blazing Combat, Help!, The
Spirit, and many more!
Including a cross-indexed artist and writer listing,
this tome also features a new painted cover by Alex Horley, reams
of unpublished art, archival photos, examinations of Warren's competition,
plus exhaustive details on Warren merchandise, conventions, top
strips, most prolific contributors, foreign publications, and many
other fascinating oddities!
Also within it's pages are new articles on Richard
Corben, Frank Frazetta, Steve Ditko and others, and interviews with
Bernie Wrightson, Jim Warren, Will Eisner, Neal Adams, Gene Colan
and many more.
Now out of print and extremely scarce, this is a must-have
for any Warren Publications collector.
First edition 8.5" x 11" Paperback.
There is also a Limited Edition version which is signed by Jim Warren. Only 1,000 copies were produced and all are individually signed and numbered on an interior page.
If you are a Warren fan then this book is a must! The complete, detailed history of Warren and a complete listing of
every magazine etc.
I would think that it would be nearly impossible to read this as a book, but as a reference that you dip into to clarify facts
it is invaluable. This is the encyclopedia of Warren.
What I'd like to know is why Alex Horley gave Vampirella
a black costume????
