This is great news for me. As you might know, I reported on the lost CREEPSHOW 2 story, Pinfall, getting its comic adaptation a few weeks ago. And needless to say I am a huge CREEPSHOW fan. I just peeped the making-of doc JUST DESSERTS too. Good times.
As you can imagine, I am over-joyed to hear the original CREEPSHOW comic, which was released (as a very limited edition) back when the original movie open in 1982, is getting a reprinting!
Very, very cool!
I know I will be buying up a copy once it hits. Will you? If you find yourself still not sold on the idea, here are some details to get the CREEPSHOW love flowing back into your veins.
Here's the rundown via the comic's Amazon site:
The graphic novel adaptation of the classic horror anthology film written by Stephen King, with art by Bernie Wrightson!
