The smash-hit horror anthology based on the hit Shudder TV series is back and CREEPIER than ever!

In the debut issue, master of the macabre GARTH ENNIS (Preacher, The Boys) and superstar creator BECKY CLOONAN (Wonder Woman) team up for the very first time to deliver a disturbing tale of the unborn!

Then, freaky PHIL HESTER (Gotham City: Year One) tells the story of a grieving son who bends the laws of nature to see his mother one last time…this can’t end well!

Each issue of CREEPSHOW, VOL. 2 will feature different creative teams with uniquely horrifying standalone stories and a 1:10 connecting cover from iconic horror artist SKINNER!

It's baaaack! Volume 2 #1 of Creepshow starts us off with two stories of madness and monsters (of the humankind).

The first story "Make Your Choice" is about religious hypocrisy and retribution. The subject matter could be disturbing and I was surprised at how dark it went...but it makes its point. I'm with the writer on this one.

The second story "Fossil Record" Is a new take on an old horror classic, the zombie. It also has a classic horror ending...was it real or was it all in his head (pun intended! LOLOL)? If you read this issue you'll realize how funny that joke was.

Some people like to read horror, but not "see" horror. Some like to "see" horror but not read it. Then there are those of us who love both! With awesome storytelling and talented artists, Creepshow brings to life what we've been craving.
