This volume is as good as any and the magazine really started to hit it's stride. The presentation by Dark Horse is flawless. The printing inside is crystal clear and the binding is superb. These collections are on the slightly pricey side but what you get is a quality hardcover book with dust jacket which, if treated well, will last for many, many years.

"Valley of the Vampires" provides an interesting twist to the vampire mythos as well as "Bloody Mary". "The Mind of the Monster" was interesting as it's set against a Sci-Fi background. Astronauts are being killed on Mars by a monster. Earth needs it's own monster to go to Mars to defeat the other monster. This monster needs a thinking brain to do battle. Will this idea work? "Dr. Jekyll's Jest" should be noted for a graphic depiction of horror during the story. "Telephoto Troll" was a story I enjoyed very much. It has a good blending of Sci-Fi with horror and without giving the story away, let's just say that having good "on the job communication skills" helps prevent (in Creepy World) sudden death! Lastly, Tom Sutton surprised me with "Snowmen". I wanted to list the storytellers and artists names but I didn't want this review to go on forever. Yes, I gave this a hard three but I know that the best is yet to come in the Creepy Archives collection.
As with previous volumes, reprints from previous archive volumes are listed among the tables of content for each issue but are not included. This time around, though, the omitted reprints (approx. 13 by my count) are compensated for by the inclusion of seven rather than five issues. The last issue #32 is the only one without a reprint. That said, there's enough material included in this volume to keep you busy for many, many midnight hours. Even better, the artwork is truly inspiring with huge, generous panels that literally seem to pop from the page, rich with detail.
J.C. Vaughn, former Executive Editor and Associate Publisher for THE EC ARCHIVES, provides a well-written foreward discussing his admiration for the many artists and writers who worked on the magazine through the years. The book jacket describes this set of issues as part of the "psychedelic era" of CREEPY. Read the stories and you're likely to agree; what a freaky trip some of them take you on! Traditional features such as fan letter pages, the Creepy Fan Club, Creepy's Loathsome Lore, and those great advertisement pages all make a welcome return.
Reading this volume makes it clear why the ghoulish appeal of CREEPY remains so strong. It delivers!
