CREEPSHOW "Something to Tide You Over"

It's not often Stephen King writes a comic book!
But when he does...'d want someone the caliber of Berni Wrightson to illustrate it!
This little terror-tale was adapted from the 1982 anthology film CreepShow (scripted by Stephen King and directed by George Romero) for a graphic novel also written by King and illustrated by Berni Wrightson.
The movie version of this particular tale starred Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson & Gaylen Ross.
The flick is an homage to horror comics in general and EC Comics in particular, and features many lighting and optical effects mimicking comic book graphics (a common practice now, but ground-breaking in '82).
While the graphic novel adapts all the stories in the movie, it leaves out the framing sequences involving a little boy (played by King's son, Joe Hill), a copy of a CreepShow comic book, and the kid's disapproving father.
You can read the entire graphic novel, as well as see a 90-minute documentary about the making of CreepShow, HERE!
