The Most Fun You’ll Ever Have… BEING SCARED!
If you’re a fan of George Romero’s anthology Creepshow (and who the hell isn’t?!), you’re probably pretty damn happy about how much love it’s been getting in recent years. Waxwork Records put out a vinyl record of the soundtrack, Amok Time just released an action figure of Nathan Grantham, and Trick or Treat Studios is unloading a mask collection this Halloween.
It’s a damn good time to be a Creepshow fan, and the good times roll on with the exciting announcement that a brand new reissue of the long out-of-print graphic novel adaptation of the film is headed our way very soon. Released by Plume in July ’82, a few months before the movie came out, the 64-page graphic novella was packed with all five of King’s short stories (three of which were written specifically for the movie), and it featured art by the legendary Bernie Wrightson. The original release has become increasingly expensive and hard to find.
Now back in print: the graphic novel adaptation of Stephen King’s Creepshow, based on the 1982 horror anthology and cult classic film directed by George Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead)—and featuring stunning illustrations by the legendary Bernie Wrightson and cover art by the acclaimed Jack Kamen! A harrowing and darkly humorous tribute to the controversial and influential horror comics of the 1950s, Creepshow presents five sinsister stories from the #1 New York Times bestselling author—“Father’s Day,” “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill,” “Something to Tide You Over,” “The Crate,” and “They’re Creeping Up on You”…unforgettable tales of terror to haunt your days and nights!
The Creepshow graphic novel will be available May 9th and you can pre-order it today!
