“Filled with heart-pounding tales and impressively poignant messages, this debut issue will make your blood rush.” – ComicBook.com
“Creepshow #1 makes a strong case for it being a worthy successor to the original movie, the recent Shudder series, and the King and Wrightson graphic novel adaptation.” – Horror DNA
LOS ANGELES 09/27/2022 — Skybound announced today that Creepshow #1, the debut issue of the five-issue comic book anthology, sold out the same day it hit comic shops. Based on Greg Nicotero’s hit Shudder TV series produced and licensed by Cartel Entertainment, Creepshow #1 will return with a second printing on October 26, 2022 just in time for Halloween.
“There’s clearly an insatiable appetite for the unique thrills and chills that Creepshow has to offer, and we’re just getting started!” said Alex Antone, Editorial Director at Skybound. “Look for even bigger scares in our second issue next month, and in the meantime, we hope you enjoy this second printing cover by the indomitable Gabriel Hardman!”
Featuring a brand-new second printing variant cover drawn by Gabriel Hardman (Hulk, Planet of the Apes) and colored by Brad Anderson, Creepshow #1 includes two terrifying tales. Writer/artist Chris Burnham (Die! Die! Die!) scares up a story of trick or treaters who are taught what happens when you mess with the wrong house, and then writers Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series) and Stephen Langford (Creepshow TV series) team up with artist John McCrea (Hitman) to petrify readers with the party antics of Shingo, the birthday clown with an appetite for more than cake. Brian Witten is overseeing on behalf of Nicotero’s Monster Agency Productions.
The Creepshow #1 (of 5) Second Printing Variant (Diamond Code JUL229791) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, October 26, 2022.
The Creepshow comic miniseries deal was brokered by Striker Entertainment.
