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 included Horror Tales, Terror Tales, Weird, Tales from the Tomb, Tales of Voodoo, Terrors of Dracula, 3-D Monsters 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/artist credits seldom appeared, but included Marvel Comics penciller/inkers Dick Ayers and Chic Stone as well as Fass himself, with brother Irving Fass and Ezra Jackson serving as art directors. Golden Age great Carl Burgos, creator of the original Human Torch, was editor; he had created a short-lived character called Captain Marvel, no relation to either the old Fawcett Comics superhero nor Marvel's Captain Marvel, for Fass' M. F. Enterprises in 1966.

Fass' business partner, Stanley Harris, left after a falling-out and formed Harris Publications, whose comic-book arm publishes Vampirella and other former Warren properties.
