Creepy #71: "The Song of Alan Bane"

Download Creepy #71

Warrior Poet Dept. Sword and Sorcery is the order of the day and here's Creepy #71, with a stunning Ken Kelly cover. Fortunately for us kids who had been burned too many times in the past, the interior of this magazine actually has a story relating to the beautiful cover art. James Warren was pretty good about that sort of thing, to his credit. The story in question is "The Song of Alan Bane," which was written by Gerry Boudreau and drawn by Luis Bermejo. In fact, this is an all-Bermejo issue. Also included is Nathaniel Hawthorn's "The Minotaur." Overall this issue is pretty good! Check it out for yourselves.

Note: I originally posted this on 7/25/09, but a technical glitch forces me to post it anew.

Wow, great archetypical story with even better art. Strong pathos and believability. I love the black and white 70's magazine stuff. It's a totally lost era in comics, and sadly today's mainstream comics art no matter how "adult" is so void of any of its better qualities.

You and I see eye-to-eye on both this story and the 1970s B & W comics magazine scene in general, my friend!
