Creepy Creations 1-30

I bet the newsagent got a shock if they put the comic up the wrong way round!


These scary creations were on the back cover of Shiver and Shake 1973-74. Who as a kid would dare to have these on your wall staring at you at night...America had the Garbage patch kids horror we had these....a very warped Dr Seus artist Ken Reid. (Ken drew Roger the Dodger, Jonah for The Beano in the 50's...Faceache for Buster 1970-80 and many more)

It would be nice to show all of them here. If anyone wants to help please send a JPEG or Zip scan to thejeep2000@yahoo.co.uk

Remember don't have nightmares!!
I did two websites about Ken Reid here-

I don't think No.14 is by Ken.

They were great images. I'm sure no kids would be scared by them. We were made of stronger stuff back then. ;-)

Horror was the "in thing" in the early Seventies and even Marvel comics featured Satanism regularly with no fear of censorship.

...back for another Friday night fix!

The mind was beginning to boggle and finally warped by No.23 'The Clacton Candy Shop Monster' which just seemed to fascinate more than the others but only by a bit!

Looking at 70's animation on YouTube eg 'Crystal Tips and Alistar'- such cartoons seem so backward by todays standards but it's difficult to imagine Ken Reid-type pin-ups among the bright, contemporary graphics-orientated computery wares in the larger newsagents.

That's not to cry 'Humbug' at today's material which I've hardly looked at but it's still a shame that no obvious successor has emerged despite Ken Reid's influence.

Wahey! I drew number 30!

I remember sending it to Shiver and Shake, and I remember the excitement of seeing my first ever cartoon in print.

Ken was a genius.
