And, that is part of the problem with this new Creepy series. Jennifer was first published in 1974 in Creepy #63. Dark Horse has been consistently plucking gems from the old Warren Publishing Creepy Magazine and I can't fault them for that too much. I DO have the issues, but most people don't and it probably encourages people to buy the collected editions. But if you cherry-pick masterpieces like "Jennifer", they make the modern stories look "meh" in comparison. In some ways, it isn't really a fair comparison because "Jennifer" was better than most of the contents of Creepy back in 1974 too. An interesting issue. The new material has some bright spots, but the hands-down star is an almost 40-year-old work. I'm not sure publishing current stories with all-star material from day's past is the best publishing move. Read Full Review
