The circle is now complete; what began as George A. Romero and Stephen King’s homage to the classic EC Comics horror titles of the 1950s is now coming to comic books itself as Skybound Entertainment has announced the upcoming five-issue limited series Creepshow.
“Growing up a fan of horror comics and Famous Monsters, I will never forget the thrill of seeing a new issue hit the stands…thumbing through the pages with the anticipation of diving into a dark twisted and outrageous world filled with ghouls, zombies and the classic come-uppence,” said Greg Nicotero, director, writer, and executive producer of the Creepshow TV Series. “I’m very proud to see Creepshow find its rightful place on comic book shelves everywhere!”
“Creepshow has consistently been one of the best things in horror for the last 40 years, and for Skybound to be able to carry on such a rich horror tradition is an absolute thrill,” added Jon Moisan, Editor at Skybound. “We knew a franchise this prolific would require the best talent in the industry, so we assembled a collection of creators that will do the Creepshow name proud. The stories they have planned are going to scare the absolute hell out of people.”’
Each issue of the five-part anthology will feature standalone tales from different creative teams, including talent such as Chris Burnham (Die!Die!Die!), Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series), Steve Langford (Creepshow TV series), Josh Malerman (Creepshow TV series, Bird Box), David & Maria Lapham (Stray Bullets), Steve Foxe (Razorblades: The Horror Magazine), John McCrea (Hitman), and Kelley Jones (Batman, The Sandman).
Look for Creepshow #1 in comic book shops from September 21st.
