Publisher, Plume (Penguin Books). Creative team. Writers, Stephen King. Artists, Bernie Wrightson. ISBN, Creepshow is a graphic novella published by Penguin imprint Plume in July , based on. Creepshow Comic Books. Stephen King’s CREEPSHOW Wrightson ART Graphic Novel 1st Printing. CREEPSHOW TPB Stephen King & Bernie Wrightson Graphic Novel Horror TP. Exactly like the movie "CreepShow." Even most of the characters look like the actors from the movie. This is THE comic book with the exact stories from the movie.
This creepy graphic comic book is based on the horror anthology and cult classic film Night of the Living Dead I'd pass on this one Ok, you can go down the basement, just stay away from the box Cruel and unusual punishment Ewww www AND, of course, Stephen King! Looking forward to the movie
I would be WAY into that, but I'm guessing they look at things more on a merchandise scale as well But yeah, horror is probably the most profitable film genre next to action films, why not at least try one?
Cavin has an excellent idea there. Low budget Journey Into Mystery anthology movies every October is an incredible idea.
Sadly, I can tell you such a pitch would meet with blank stares from the typical Hollywood execs, and fly over their heads like the vapour trail from a But I bet if an A-list director came in and pitched it they'd be all over it, without a clue of what they're all over.
But maybe things are different at Marvel than at other studios?
I shouldn't sell them short. If they'd have real illustration talents doing it, rather than the usual band of manga-cutsie inspired cartoonists, it could really be something.
Hollywood should put THOIA and it's readers in charge of horror films for the next year or so-- I believe we can convince a few people about a few things.
Post a Comment. Now of course we are all aware of the Bernie Wrightson comic book adaptation too, but what's really neat about this version is that UK artist Stephen Snowdon spent about a month cobbling together screen grabs from the movie, as well as scanned pictures to recreate the comic as it appears in the original, and best, Creepshow film!
I truly love this movie and have always been fascinated by the briefly glimpsed comic book art featured as the animated, page-turning transitions between the stories. A joltingly unique item, and just in time for xmas for that special certain Creepshow creep in your life! Posted by Mr.

Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Along with later protestations that his work was nothing more than "the literary equivalent of a Big Mac and fries," his Jordy Verrill seemed to put forth the notion that King was a writer who didn't take his craft seriously.
That notion would dog much of King's early and middle career, subsiding only in light of more mainstream success with 's Bag of Bones and his later acceptance of the National Book Award. As a film, Creepshow attempts to serve up horror and humor in equal measure, with limited success.
When moments of real tension and fear build, they are undercut by horror-comic overlays, sudden garish four-color backgrounds and in-joke special effects. Perhaps ironically, the comic book plays it straighter, to far better effect.
When working with the language and art of comic books - especially horror comics - the moments of kitsch onscreen appear far more realistic on the page.
Most of the humor comes from The Creep's awful bon mots, as opposed to the uneasy juxtaposition of live actors and horror-comic illustration. Oddly, some of the best moments in the film Creepshow involve the wrap-around story of a young boy played by Stephen King's son, the future bestselling author, Joe Hill taking revenge on his father for throwing away his Creepshow comic. Unfortunately, the wrap-around story is the only one not featured in the comic.
Later, King would authorize comic adaptations of The Stand, The Talisman, and the Dark Tower books, and the Secretary of Dreams collections anthologize stories throughout King's vast catalogue, wedding them to images by artist Glenn Chadbourne. Though the film now enjoys a cult following and has spawned three sequels, no other graphic companion has been released. Part homage, part tie-in product, and part good-natured fun, Creepshow offered King fans the chance to see him try something he had never attempted before, and - despite his dabbling in the comic book industry - will likely never try again.
