My favourite story is probably The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill, he's such a lunk-head. Least favourite... it's hard to choose one because I really did enjoy them all, but They're Creeping Up On You is the one I maybe loved the leas ...more
The five stories in this collection are very quick hits. There is not a lot of time taken to flesh things out. Each story gets in and gets out . . . if there is backstory, it is covered in a few short panels. Because of this, it ...more
Stephen has spoken about his love of reading these things when he was a kid, these comic horror type stories. This is his own. It's Schlocky and there is some gore to go around. This is full on gross, this is more emotional than graphic.
I have seen this and I knew ...more
I was tempted to give this a four based on feelings of nostalgia for the movie but I ultimately decided on a three. It's a cool thing to have for a fan of the movie and the stories are 99% similar, owing to Bernie working from an older version of the screenplay. I love Bernie Wr ...more
Checkout the cool cover art horror lovers!
This creepy graphic comic book is based on the 1982 horror anthology and cult classic film Night of the Living Dead....and gives us....five wonderfully dark and sinister stories.
Just a few words about each....don't want to spoil your creepy fun!
No. 1: Father's Day (5 Stars) ~~~ Happen to like decorated birthday cakes to celebrate this special day? I'd pass on this one....hehehe or should I say clakclakclak!
No. 2: The Lonesome Death Of Jor...more
The art is great, as are the stories, but I'm putting this review up specifically for those interested in the physical edition (the paperback) of this book. If you're interested in the stories, the content of the book is easily five stars. This version however...
The production quality of this paperback is on par with buying a children's grocery-store ...more
This graphic novel is a collection of 5 short stories, and I really enjoyed them all. I think first story (Father's Day) was my favorite, but last one (They’re Creeping Up On You) was one of the most disturbing stories I've ever read. No wonder I hate bugs. Nasty little suckers. ...more
the first story was good all the rest are trash nuff said !
Note : this review used to be longer because i was mad thinking that Stephen king took this lightly , but as it turns out from conversations with A reader friend in L McCoy i have learned that this is a tribute to older cheesier comics , i guess for king and his generation they would love these because it meant something to them as they read them growing up and when you are youn ...more
Cheesy, creepy fun.
So it’s not King’s best work. I don’t think it’s meant to be a masterpiece in literature though. This is a weird collection of 5 short stories in King’s tribute to old-school horror anthology comics.
Like many of those older horror anthologies, the stories inside may be cheesy and there are some miscellaneous issues to be had (examples: I found it predictable, I didn’t care about the characters, etc.) but it’s ultimately fun. We get 5 fun, pretty intense horro ...more
Actually, other than the terrific artwork by the Wrightsons, the book is merely okay; a blatant homage to the EC horror comics of the '40s and '50s. ...more
Sadly, a good deal of the art herein looks a bit rushed. Wrights ...more

Creepshow, believe it or not, is my first Stephen King book. I think I did a right job at picking this up first because Stephen King is well known for his long and twisted books, so starting in something a bit shorter and less complicated, if you would say, would be a great move especi ...more
Creepshow is made up of five stories by King, presented to us with 1950s-style graphics.
Father’s Day - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verill - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Crate - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
Something to Tide You Over - ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
They’re Creeping Up On You - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My favourite of these stories was definitely They’re Creeping Up On You; it was terrifying, and the imagery of the cockroaches will forever be engrained ...more
The “Creep” reminds me of the “Cryptkeeper”
So this first story.. “Bring me my CAKE! Bedelia” for Father’s Day is about a family with a horrible secret that comes back for Cake.. I guess.. it was pretty twisted.
Second Story: “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill” is actually kinda funny. Jordy is a farmer and not ...more
