Creepy #9: "Terror in the Dark Kingdom!" (Frazetta and Gray Morrow!)
Download Creepy #9
Once I get started on a sword and sorcery track, it's tough for me to get derailed. However, let's look at Creepy #9's assets: "Winged Terror" cover painting by Frank Frazetta! "Dark Kingdom" cover story by Archie Goodwin and drawn by the artistic genius Gray Morrow! Can you say, "this is Sparta!" Ayep! They're in here, too. The ending is a bit gimmicky, but the art more than makes up for it in this classic tale featured in Creepy #9. The rest of the issue is nicely rounded out with Reed Crandall and Joe Orlando art. Steve Ditko is on board, too.
