Image Comics/Skybound Brings Back Horror Anthology ‘Creepshow’

The classic horror film spearheaded by gore-meisters George A. Romero and Stephen King, Creepshow, is making a comeback in comics this Fall, courtesy of Image Comics/Skybound. A new five-issue series based on the Shudder TV show and featuring creators 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), with many more to be announced.
Creepshow #1 will be available Wednesday September 21st, 2022 and was brokered by Striker Entertainment, a global licensing IP accelerator.
What’s that lurking in the dark? Who’s that walking up behind you? And why does it sound like death is slowly creeping this way? Why, it’s Creepshow!
Jon Moisan, Editor at Skybound, explained the thinking behind this new title:
“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. 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.”’ 
Greg Nicotero, director, writer, and executive producer of the Creepshow TV Series, added:
“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. I’m very proud to see Creepshow find its rightful place on comic book shelves everywhere!”
