The case that Oxel couldn't give up on has sucked him in deeper as he looks for answers. But why? Not for money, not even for curiosity, so why? What sins can he hope to uncoveror wash away?

    John Arcudi is great at both dialogue and plotting. With those talents, you could make the most plain story interesting. “The Creep” is anything but plain, though. Arcudi has harnessed the ambiguities and discomfort of the real world to make a mystery that plays with our own preconceived notions toward people to leave us on shaky ground, and Jonathan Case turns Arcudi's story into the most well-illustrated miniseries of this year. Due to the series brevity — four issues, counting the #0 — I understand if you have missed it and think you will just pick it up in trade. If that's your thought, though, you better carry through with that thought, or we are going to have serious words. Read Full Review

    With "The Creep" Arcudi and Case have created a compelling detective story that grabs you. Each new installment just gets stronger, and if anything it just makes the wait that much more frustrating. This is an excellent comic that you should be reading; if you haven't seen it up until now, take a look for yourself. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    If Arcudi can keep this level of writing up The Creep is on pace to be one of the gem titles released this year and certainly deserves a look from those with an interest in human stories with a noir like mystery touch. Read Full Review

    First Comics News - Matthew Szewczyk Sep 30, 2012

    Writer John Arcudi is weaving a wonderful period piece set in the late 80′s that will give fans of hard boiled mysteries something to look for in their local comic shops. I am hoping that the comic can find its target audience before too many issues are out as it will be nearly impossible for readers to catch up later. Read Full Review
