Poe 1975, Pt.11

(Continued from Poe 1975, Pt.10)

CREEPY  70
"MAN OF THE CROWD"


2 months and 1 issue after Warren did an all-POE issue of CREEPY, they did another one, making for a total of 13 POE stories in only 5 months from them!  It blows my mind to think that in all the years I've been a fan of Warren's output, I was never aware of these issues-- and never had them in my collection.  Well, at least thanks to the internet, I have finally been able to read their contents-- and, share them with whoever is reading this blog!

2nd in line in CREEPY #70 is the uncoventional...

     "MAN OF THE CROWD".

This was the 2nd version of this, following Skywald's PSYCHO #23 (Jan'75),
only 3 months earlier!

The artist this time is Luis Bermejo.  He did a lot of work for Warren, but I most fondly remember him as the original artist on THE ROOK.  This would be his 1st of 2 POE adaptations.

Which brings us up to the 16th out of 25 Warren POE adaptations!!
