“Wrightson’s artwork is excellent, gruesome, and brings King’s stories to life on the page as we’ve never seen before.”
Stephen King and Bernie Wrightson. Two names that are like a horror Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. When King’s Creepshow came out in 1982, the comic adaptation soon followed, and has long been out of print ever since. To capture the feel of the film’s homage to the EC and DC 1950’s horror comics like Tales From the Crypt, The Vault of Horror, and The Haunt of Fear, the legendary comic veteran Bernie Wrightson was brought in for the artwork. The result was a match made in heaven.
Why We’re Excited About This Book:
Considering that copies of the original comic adaptation fetch prices over $200 online, this reissue is a chance for all the fans to take advantage of a highly coveted classic graphic comic at a much more affordable price. Wrightson’s artwork is excellent, gruesome, and brings King’s stories to life on the page as we’ve never seen before. Creepshow releases 9 May 2017.
