APRIL 4, MILWAUKIE, OR–Just when you thought your day couldn’t get any more menacing, Dark Horse Comics announces the frightening addition of its Creepy comics relaunch to the annals of Dark Horse Digital!

Creepy #8 is available today on Digital.DarkHorse.com, 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).

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.
