If you’re a horror fan, and was of reading age any time between 1964 and 1983, you probably remember the classic horror comic Creepy.   This black and white anthology thrilled horror fans of all ages, and avoided the comics code by being published as a newstand magazine.

Well, fans of this exciting series are in for good news this year.  Dark Horse Comics will be publishing archive volumes of the original Creepy, and launching a new version of Creepy!

Editor Shawna Gore says, “The new material will retain the original magazine’s penchant for twisted tales of the supernatural, suspense, and bizarre sci-fi, but with a sharp focus on modern fears and phobias. It’s not going to be your father’s Creepy magazine, but it’ll be every bit as good and gruesome.”

The first issue hits comic shops on July 15th, 2009!

Imagine a United States shut off from the world by concrete barricades and barbed wire-not because of what might get in, but what might get out. A vampire plague has spread from sea to shining sea and when a small holdout of scientists trapped outside of Buffalo, N.Y. discover a cure, it’s up to a Special Ops team from the President’s current offices in London to go in and get it. Yet, not everyone in the world wants to see America back in the saddle again…
