Most Valuable EERIE PUBLICATIONS COMICS published each year

Key investment comics and historically important issues

These are the 3 most valuable EERIE PUBLICATIONS COMICS comic books published in every year

(Overstreet 2013 guide NM prices)

These books have proven to be consistently the most in demand key issues ever and are the best investments long term.

This list only include regular cover mass printed editions.  No variants or limited edition versions included.

This is the first time a yearly comparison has ever been made and the purpose is to show a few things. 

First of all it does truly highlight the major key books of every year.  It also shows quickly which titles seems to pop up the most often and are truly the most expensive series to collect.  Some titles are just more collected than others and bring higher $$ amounts even to non-key issues in a run. 

Note that some years have lesser keys standing at the front of the line and are for their age a better investment. This can always be seen with books from all eras's which are much more affordable and scarcer than any more recent books.

Eerie Publications was a publisher of black-and-white horror-anthology comics magazines. Less well-known and more downscale than the field's leader, Warren Publishing (Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella), the New York City-based company was one of several related publishing ventures run by comic-book artist and 1970s magazine entrepreneur Myron Fass. Titles published during their 15 years of operation included Weird, Horror Tales,Terror Tales, Tales from the Tomb, Tales of Voodoo, and Witches' Tales. All of these magazines featured grisly, lurid color covers.  New material was mixed with reprints from 1950s pre-Comics Code horror comics. Writer and artist credits seldom appeared, but included Marvel Comics penciler/inkers Dick Ayers and Chic Stone, as well as Fass himself, with brother Irving Fass and Ezra Jackson serving as art directors.Mel Lenny initially and then Golden Age of Comic Books producer Robert W. Farrell had the title of publisher. Carl Burgos, creator of the Golden Age original Human Torch, was editor; he had created a short-lived character called Captain Marvel, no relation to either the old Fawcett Comicssuperhero nor Marvel's Captain Marvel, for Fass' M. F. Enterprises in 1966.  Fass' business partner, Stanley Harris, left in 1976 after a falling-out, and formed Harris Publications, whose comic book arm published Vampirella and other former Warren properties.
