FANTACO ENTERPRISES INC.
(W) Carl Burgos
Originally released 55 years ago in 1966, it was to be entitled "Eerie" but Warren jumped the gun by publishing Eerie
#1 very quickly as an ashcan comic to secure the copyright. So the title of this comic magazine was changed at the last minute to Weird
and they used Eerie Publications for their company name. Although the cover of this first issue is tame, Weird
went on to publish the most bizarre, hideously violent, and gory covers ever seen in comics. The first issue is a hard to obtain, high priced collectors item usually found in terrible condition due to the exceedingly cheap paper it was printed on. This facsimile faithfully reproduces the entire first issue on much better paper stock that will last!!
