Crestwood Publications, also known as Prize Comics and Feature Publications, was a magazine publisher that also published comic book from the 1940s through the 1960s. Its main claim to fame was that in the late 1940s to mid 1950s, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby packaged comics for the company, and creating many new titles. This included the non-gory horror comic Black Magic, the creator-owned Fighting American, and the first romance comic title, Young Romance.

The company gave up publishing comics in 1963, selling off its remaining romance comics to DC Comics. They continued to publish humor magazines up to 1976.
