From the publisher:

THE WARREN COMPANION is the ultimate compendium to the great comics of Warren Publishing! Few publishers throughout history can boast the extraordinary work of as many great artists and writers as Warren, and this book--featuring a complete reprinting of the out-of-print, Eisner Award-winning COMIC BOOK ARTIST #4, plus dozens of new interviews and features--covers the entire history of the company from 1956 to 1983, examining all the titles including CREEPY, EERIE, VAMPIRELLA, BLAZING COMBAT, HELP!, THE SPIRIT, and many more! Including the most definitive (and indispensable) checklist ever compiled on the company (with cross-indexed artist and writer listings), this tome also features a new painted cover by ALEX HORLEY, reams of unpublished art, archival photos, examinations of Warren's competition, plus exhaustive details on Warren merchandise, conventions, top strips, most prolific contributors, foreign publications, and many other fascinating oddities! Also featuring new articles on RICHARD CORBEN, FRANK FRAZETTA, STEVE DITKO and others, and interviews with BERNIE WRIGHTSON, JIM WARREN, WILL EISNER, NEAL ADAMS, GENE COLAN and many more, this volume is the last word on Warren Publishing!

This came from the collection of Steve Sherman, a writer,artist, puppet-maker, puppet-performer, and avid collector. Steve worked as Jack Kirby's assistant, at Filmation, and Sid and Marty Krofft, before forming his own company Puppet Studio in 1984 contributing to "Pee-Wee's Playhouse", "Men in Black 1 & 2", "Mighty Joe Young", "Muppets" and numerous other TV series and feature films.
