Skybound has announced Creepshow: Joe Hill’s Wolverton Station, an all-new one shot of the smash-hit, Eisner Award nominated comic book anthology based on Greg Nicotero’s Shudder TV series produced and licensed by Cartel Entertainment. Season 4 of the hit Shudder TV series of the same name is out now on AMC and AMC+.
In this feature-length issue, Creepshow alum and New York Times Bestseller Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box, Locke & Key) is joined by Jason Ciaramella (C is for Cthulu) and Michael Walsh (The Silver Coin) to adapt his acclaimed short story in an expanded format with new twists and turns…including a special appearance by The Creep! They tell the terrifying tale of a businessman whose commute is about to get a lot hairier when his train makes an unexpected stop at “Wolverton Station”!
“I’m always glad to renew my acquaintance with The Creep and reconnect with the gleeful gross-outs that are the hallmark of Creepshow in all its manifestations, from film to TV to comics,” said Joe Hill. “I wrote ‘Wolverton Station’ over a decade ago, working longhand while I traveled the UK by train for a book tour, and right from the start I knew I was writing a Creepshow kind of thing. It’s the story of a cut-throat dealmaker, someone who thinks of himself as quite a wolf, running afoul of creatures whose fangs are in no way metaphorical. At its dark heart, it’s a fairy tale — not one of the modern fairy tales, the sort safely sanitized by Disney for mass consumption, but the older kind of fable, the sort with teeth. That kind of story is The Creep’s stock-and-trade and so it feels exactly right that the story should be adapted for Creepshow’s pestilent pages.”
In addition to the main cover by Michael Walsh, Creepshow: Joe Hill’s Wolverton Station comes with an incredible lineup of variant covers, including an open to order cover by Gabriel Rodriguez (Locke & Key) and a 1:10 incentive cover by powerhouse illustrator Maria Wolf.
Creepshow: Joe Hill’s Wolverton Station will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, March 27, 2024.
