Skybound will be releasing a Creepshow Holiday Special one-shot comic book, in addition to Volume 2 of their Creepshow comic book series
Last year, Skybound launched a comic book series inspired by Creepshow franchise that George A. Romero and Stephen King began with the 1982 film Creepshow (watch it HERE) and the 1987 sequel Creepshow 2 (watch that one HERE). Volume 1 consisted of five issues that have since been collected in a trade paperback. Volume 2 will also consist of five issues and will start reaching store shelve soon – and in the midst of the Volume 2 release, there will also be a one-shot Creepshow Holiday Special comic book!
Skybound announced that Creepshow Holiday Special #1 will reach comic book stores on December 6th. Here’s the information:
We proudly present a holiday special of petrifying proportions—Creepshow is here to put fear in your cheer! First, you’ve heard of Santa, you’ve heard of Krampus, but have you ever heard of “The Christmas Man”? Witness the birth of a new horrifying holiday classic from Daniel “Don’t Call Me Santa” Kraus (The Shape of Water, Shudder’s Creepshow) and jolly Jonathan Wayshak (Skin Crawl, Ferryman)! Then, jingling James Asmus (Survival Street, Rick & Morty) and lively Letizia Cadonici (House of Slaughter) deliver a cautionary tale about stealing the wrong parcel in “Package Thief.”
In addition to the main cover by Guillem March, Creepshow Holiday Special #1 comes with an impressive lineup of variant covers, including a cover by Jonathan Wayshak and a 1:10 incentive cover by Jorge Corona.
Some of the covers can be seen at the bottom of this article.
While promoting Creepshow Holiday Special #1, Skybound also happened to mention that Volume 2 of the comic book series has an “all-star creative roster” that includes Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Boys), Becky Cloonan (Wonder Woman), Phil Hester (Gotham City: Year One), Michael Wash (The Silver Coin), Dan Watters (Homesick Pilots, Arkham City), Abigail Larson (Sandman Universe: The Dreaming), Zoe Thorogood (It’s Lonely at the Centre of the Earth), Joel Farrelly (Tell Me a Story), Goran Sudžuka (Ghosted, Year Zero), Nick Dragotta (East of West), Alisa Kwitney (Mystik U), Saladin Ahmed (Dragon, Miles Morales: Spider-Man), Joe Quinones (Batman ‘89), Tim Daniel & DB Andry (End After End), Matthew Roberts (Manifest Destiny), and many others to be announced.
In addition to the comic book projects, there’s also a Creepshow TV series on the Shudder streaming service that’s heading into its fourth season this October.
