Creepshow is a graphic novella published by Penguin imprint Plume in July 1982, based on the movie Creepshow (also from 1982). The movie was directed by George A. Romero and written by Stephen King. The movie consists of 5 short films, two of which are based on two of Stephen King's own short stories, while the remaining three are written specifically for the movie.

The comic book is illustrated by Bernie Wrightson with Michele Wrightson while the cover art is done by Jack Kamen.


The comic book, like the movie consists of 5 short stories. These are:

  • "Father's Day"
  • "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" (based on the short story "Weeds", first published in 1976)
  • "The Crate" (based on the short story "The Crate"", first published in 1979)
  • "Something to Tide You Over"
  • "They're Creeping Up on You"

There is no introduction or afterword of any kind, although on the back cover it states "Stephen King conjures up five jolting tales of horror." Interestingly, the short stories "Weeds" and "The Crate" have never been collected in a Stephen King book and both remain uncollected.
