Keep an eye out for Billy's stern father, Stan, this spring, because the graphic novel adaptation of George A. Romero's Creepshow is getting re-released this May.
Originally released by Penguin's Plume imprint back in the summer of 1982, the Creepshow graphic novel features Stephen King's five EC Comics-style tales that were brought to life on screen by the Godfather of the Living Dead in one of the horror genre's ultimate anthologies.
The panels are packed with Bernie Wrightson's eye-popping artwork, which can be enjoyed anew soon when the Creepshow graphic novel goes back in print for a May 9th re-release (just don't let Billy's father find you reading it, or it might end up in the trash can).
From Amazon: "The graphic novel adaptation of the classic horror anthology film written by Stephen King, with art by Bernie Wrightson!
Now back in print: the graphic novel adaptation of Stephen King’s Creepshow, based on the 1982 horror anthology and cult classic film directed by George Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead)—and featuring stunning illustrations by the legendary Bernie Wrightson and cover art by the acclaimed Jack Kamen! A harrowing and darkly humorous tribute to the controversial and influential horror comics of the 1950s, Creepshow presents five sinsister stories from the #1 New York Times bestselling author—“Father’s Day,” “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill,” “Something to Tide You Over,” “The Crate,” and “They’re Creeping Up on You”…unforgettable tales of terror to haunt your days and nights!"
