Poe 1975, Pt.15

(Continued from Poe 1975, Pt.14)

CREEPY  70
"BERENICE"


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!

We now come to the 6th and final story in CREEPY #70...

     "BERENICE".

     This was the 7th comics version of this, following...
Outubro's CLASSICOS OF TERROR #8 (1962),  
Warren's EERIE #11 (Sep'67),
Taika's ALBUM CLASSICOS DE TERROR #6 (1968),  
Populares' EL MONJE LOCO #74 (April 30, 1969),
Vilmar's PANICO #21 (May'74), and  
Skywald's SCREAM #7 (Jul'74),
     ...the latter some 9 months earlier.

This was also the 3rd of 5 POE stories that Warren had done in the late 60s that they wound up doing new versions of in the 70s.  (Which may explain why no one has EVER done a truly "complete" set of Warren POE stories in any one place... until this blog!)  Strangely enough, all 3 stories from EERIE were later redone (and they seem to be often ignored when it comes to reprint collections).

Art this time is by Isidro Mones.  This was his 2nd of 3 POE adaptations.

Once more, for those keeping score...  this is the 20th out of 25 Warren POE adaptations!!

Sadly, the reproduction in Warren's own reprint of this story was inconsistent (translation: TERRIBLE).  But, this is where I took most of the scans from.
This was actually the next-to-last issue before Warren went belly-up.
