Dark Horse Comics Gets a Little Creepy

Or maybe that should be, a lot Creepy- as Creepy comics, the classic horror comic mag is making a triumphantly gory return courtesy of the publisher.
Starting right now, issues #1 through 8 are up for a bloody good downloading from Dark Horse Comics' digital storefront as well as at ye old comic shoppe. Not that you could download the books at the comic store... that'd just be weird.

Creepy #8 is available today on, as well as in print, for $4.99. Uncle Creepy has unearthed another malicious mag’s worth of terror. Waiting in these pages are brand-new stories from Jeff Parker (ThunderboltsHulk), Colleen Coover (X-Men: First Class), Rick Geary (A Treasury of Victorian Murder), Doug Moench (Batman), and Kelley Jones (Criminal Macabre), all wrapped up in a cover from horror master Richard Corben (Hellboy, classic Creepy and Eerie).

Creepy #1-#7 have also debuted on Dark Horse Digital and are priced at $2.99 each. A bundle containing #1-#4 is available for $9.99. Creepy #8 will drop to $2.99 after a month in the Dark Horse Digital store.

Additionally, Creepy Archives and Eerie Archives will make their debut on the Dark Horse Digital store beginning May 23! Starting with Creepy Archives Volume 1, the award-winning archival editions will alternate monthly, releasing the next volume every other month.

Creepy Archives Volume 1 reprints the first five terrifying issues of the magazine’s original run. Brilliant, classic Creepy stories from 1964 to 1966 have been raised from the dead, featuring work by such comics luminaries as Joe Orlando, Al Williamson, Alex Toth, and Frank Frazetta. This groundbreaking material turned the world of graphic storytelling on its head in the early 1960s, as phenomenal young artists like Bernie Wrightson and Neal Adams reached new artistic heights with their fascinating explorations of classic and modern horror stories.
