The Creeps: In the Warren tradition w/many original Warren artists and writers

Looks like you can still order a full run (32 issues + 4 Annuals) of CREEPS for a total of $256 (plus whatever they charge for shipping) from the website until the end of May (2022).

I love the old Warren magazines, but I feel a little like I'd be taking a mistress to embrace the "Warrant" version as well.

Still, it seems like a reasonable investment...

Already?

CREEPS Full Run + Annuals

(2 for sale)

Costs $276 shipped from the SHUDDER website, probly costs them another $20 to ship to their eBay buyer ("free shipping"), sell for $350 minus about $50 in seller fees, and you're what, making $4 for every full run you sell?

Good luck with that.

They would be buying at the discounted bulk rate at less than $150 for the set, so seems like a reasonable margin. I am interested to see if Warrant does a grand finale discount as they are probably obligated to destroy remaining copies after the cutoff date. I have them all, but as previously discussed, it’s really hard to get them all in the high grades I personally desire.

But really, how many full sets do you think one could sell?

I mean sure, if they could sell like 20 full runs on eBay at $350 each they could make some coin, but at least until the end of May, anyone who wants a full run of CREEPS can get one straight from the warehouse for $100 less than the eBay price--so would they really be able to sell 20 full runs?  They're not even guaranteeing pristine books, cautioning against random handling and shipping defects from the factory.  And now they've been through one more middleman handling them.

I dunno, I guess a lot of people are stupid...  or maybe they're counting on doing more business once the warehouse closes...  but if that were the case, you'd think they'd hold out and charge even MORE for full runs once the pipeline of back issues dried up.

Just seems weird to me.

I guess one perk of buying on eBay would be a quicker turnaround time...  The SHUDDER site says to allow 3-8 weeks for delivery!

My spider monkey and X-ray specs will probly be here sooner than that...

Some of the covers by the classic artists are amazing.

I know the availability ends today, but I just ordered my first copy of The Creeps! I've been wanting to get into magazines lately, so I figured this would be an inexpensive first start. 

Welcome to the magazine club!

I recommend the original Warren mags (particularly Frazetta covers).  Accept no substitutes!  :insane:

I recommend the original Warren mags too, but I consider the Warrant books (and to some extent the Harris and Dark Horse versions as well) "addendums" rather than "substitutes."

And there's been a lot of classic rock recorded since the turn of the century, too...  :)
