The worldwide phenomenon based on the hit Shudder TV series comes to comics in a star-studded five-issue anthology series that will SCARE YOU TO DEATH.
In the debut issue, CHRIS BURNHAM (DIE!DIE!DIE!, NAMELESS) terrifies with a tale of trick or treaters who are taught what happens when you mess with the wrong house.
Then, legendary Batman: The Animated Series creator PAUL DINI, STEPHEN LANGFORD, and JOHN McCREA (DEAD EYES, Hitman) petrify with the party antics of Shingo, the birthday clown with an appetite for more than cake!
Each issue of CREEPSHOW will feature different creative teams with uniquely horrifying standalone stories.

    Horror DNA - Ricardo Serrano Denis Sep 21, 2022

    Creepshow #1 makes a strong case for it being a worthy successor to the original movie, the recent Shudder series, and the King and Wrightson graphic novel adaptation. It has its influences in place, but it isn't hindered by them. The stories feel like EC style versions of modern horror and it helps keep the comic balanced quite well between legacy and inventiveness. It's fun, disturbing, and indulgent and it more than earns your eyes on its pages, regardless of whether they're attached to your head or not. Read Full Review

    A fun, funny and entertaining story from start to finish. The art is just as fun and entertaining as the story. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Sep 21, 2022

    Creepshowmay not be everyones cup of tea but its a brilliant and disgusting love letter to the horror comics of old and the creative teams pay homage to its source material with tongue planted firmly in cheek. And despite its long history, this issue is perfectly accessible to those unfamiliar with the franchise – but be warned: this definitely aint for kids! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Mike Eakins Sep 26, 2022

    Creepshow and the Cryptkeeper are icons of the genre, and this first installment is absolutely enjoyable and so much fun. It pays great service to fans old and new and is a great stepping stone to those that may have never heard the Cryptkeepers tales before. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 20, 2022

    Creepshow #1 comes out of the gate running, or in this case, screaming and blubbering. Both stories feel like an homage to older comics and the legacy of Creepshow while offering unique tales worth getting lost in. Read Full Review

    Well worth checking out if you are a fan of the show and want more horror themed comics to look at. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Patrick Cavanaugh Sep 13, 2023

    The first story alone makes the book worth reading, and the secondary story doesn't take away from its accomplishments while also being at least moderately entertaining in its own right. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 21, 2022

    The two stories follow the general theme of different kinds of greed taken too far. Its easy to feel a sense of satisfaction in seeing victims becoming victims in a pair of horror stories. No one is really innocent, and no one is totally evil, so all of the gore and murder is somehow appealingly acceptable in the opening issue of a potentially fun anthology mini-series.

    Big Comic Page - Mark Scott Sep 21, 2022

    I will always be up for a good horror anthology series, and between the nostalgia that comes with a name Ive known since childhood, and the quality of what we get in this first issue, I think this is a title that is going to be gracing my shelves for a long while to come. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Egan Sep 23, 2022

    The debut of "Creepshow is pretty standard horror anthology fare. Fun and spooky in the moment, but ultimately forgettable and never comes close to its great counterparts. Read Full Review
