When I think Creeeeeeepy, the first image is always the same:

Yes, CLOWNS!. Clowns scare my bladder empty and shatter my will to live and I’m yet to find one that doesn’t send my gonads screaming up into my solar plexus. And don’t talk to me about tiny, itty bitty clowns because they are even worse.


Given my extreme, but perfectly justified, coulrophobia (that’s right, clown fear has a name), I was a tad disappointed that Volume 1 of the revamped Creepy series wasn’t sporting any of the demonic

Recommends it for: Fans of Old School Horror Comics
This was fun! When I was a kid my parents never cared much about what we were reading, the important thing to them was that we were reading. In addition to a steady diet of old Mad magazines, I read a lot of old horror comics. This was fun like those were. (I wish I knew what happened to those stacks of old comics because a lot of them were really cool.) The stories were fun and well written and the art was great. I loved that the art in this was in black and white. There were a couple of color ...more

While I love the art on almost every story. The actual writing left me wanting. I think I unfairly compare this to the old Warren and EC publications. But is my comparison so unfair? They are honestly trying, and as far as the publication goes, they have hit a home run. I would love to see an entire volume of works by Hilary Barta alone. But back to those stories, they are immediately forgettable. If I'm looking forwarding to reading the originals instead of this, it's a good thing that Dark Hor ...more

A worthy successor to the cult favorite horror magazines of the 70's. The general vibe is updated but surprisingly similar, and some of the original creators are along for the ride. This stuff isn't great literature and doesn't pretend to be, but those raised on the original mags offered by Warren Publishing back in the day should find plenty to enjoy here.

I was somewhat worried that the continuation of the Creepy series would be some cheesy ode to the original magazine with weak stories and rehashes. This could not be further from the truth.

The first thing I noticed is how awesome the artists are! Each story has a completely different style and it is far more varied than the sixties issues.

The stories are also much more varied with two multi-part stories, a couple Nazi stories, and no Frankenstein or Dracula stories! These generic story plots pl

When I reserved this at the library, I thought it was a reprinting of the "Creepy" mags. from the 1960's. It turned out to be a collection of a new version of the magazine that is now being published by Dark Horse.

The writing and illustration has a more contemporary feel (logically), and it is much more graphically gory than the earlier version of "Creepy"... more of a successor to the old EC comics "Vault of Horror" and "Tales From The Crypt" in that regard.

It's worth a look if you have an in

What's better than Angelo Torres and Berni Wrightson??? Nothing! That's the answer. Many of the stories are great, there are always 1 or 2 cliche stories, but all in all, the "new" Creepy stories are well written and incredibly inked. This is a collection for all retro horror fans.
