As an avid collector of the works of Stephen King – I can with great authority attest to the fact that one of the crown jewels in any Stephen King fans collection is the 1982 comic book adaptation of his classic collaboration with George Romero on Creepshow. Long out of print and easily going for $500 or more – if you can even find it – literal generations of SK fans have never even held a copy in their hands but, that’s all about to change.
Unexpected and amazing news today as Amazon has announced that Gallery 13 will be giving the fans an opportunity to get their hands on a reprint beginning May 9th!!
64 glorious color filled pages – reliving the entire classic film. Father’s Day, The Lonesome Death Of Jodie Verrill, Something To Tide You Over, The Crate and They’re Creeping Up On You all receive the comic book treatment and come together once again to bring one of the most sought after graphic novels in horror back to the fans.
The original was released by Plume as a tie-in for the film’s release in 1982 and almost instantly became a collector’s item. Featuring amazing artwork by Bernie Wrightson and a classic cover by Jack Kamen – how can you not want to own this – seriously?
Here’s how Amazon is heralding the upcoming release:
“The graphic novel adaptation of the classic horror anthology film written by Stephen King, with art by Bernie Wrightson!
