The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Eerie Sci-Fi

What it is, Groove-ophiles! One of the things Teen Groove really dug about Warren's Eerie mag was the sci-fi shockers that would often populate some issues. The covers to many of those issues were often worth the price of the mag--covers by Vaughn Bode, Basil Gogos, Pat Boyette, Larry Todd, Manuel Sanjulian, Ken Kelly, Jordi Penalva, Jim Laurier, and Romas Kukalis, f'rinstance...


  1. I owned more than a few of these over the years. The Pat Boyette cover for Eerie #28 sticks in my memory as it was one of the very first black and white magazines I ever picked up. I still remember seeing it for the first time at the drug store which supplied my comic habit in its earliest days. When you're ten this stuff imprints in significant ways.

  2. They remind of some of the covers of Galileo magazine, a short-lived sci-fi mag from the late 70s.

  3. Groove--I can't thank you enough for the awesome work you do with your posts facilitating our collective walk down memory lane--I travel quite a bit for work and am not able to bring much with me. My tablet and your posts keep me entertained for hours! Thanks again!

  4. I didn't know that there was ever a Rook/Vampirella crossover. Live and learn.
