The smash-hit horror comic is back with new terrors and thrills. Today Skybound announced the talent behind Creepshow Vol. 2 #2, the second installment of the hugely popular comic book anthology based on Greg Nicotero’s hit Shudder TV series produced and licensed by Cartel Entertainment.
Creepshow Vol.2 returns to comic book shops on October 11, 2023, with terrifying tales by comic superstars Michael Wash (The Silver Coin), Dan Watters (Homesick Pilots, Arkham City) and Hugo Award-winning illustrator Abigail Larson (Sandman Universe: The Dreaming).
In the spirit of all iterations of Creepshow in pop culture, every issue of the Creepshow comic series comes packed with two spine-chilling stories. Each issue of the five-part anthology will feature different creative teams from the worlds of comics, books, film, television, and beyond.
In the sinister second volume, Michael Walsh broadcasts a chilling yarn about a down-on-his-luck dad and his son’s obsession with TV in “The Man With No Eyes”! Then, Dan Watters and Abigail Larson will render you speechless with the story of a young woman burdened with paranormal hearing and the price she’ll pay for silence in “Stop Haunting Me”!
