A CREEPY WEEK (PART 2)



It seemed like forever, but DARK HORSE's CREEPY #2 finally came out a few months after the debut issue, complete with a letter from yours truly in the "Dear Uncle Creepy"  column. I waxed a bit apprehensive about the book's successful resurrection. Uncle Creepy's tone in response was a little like a full body wax job in return. Either that, or the puns didn't go over real well. I've even noticed that with a few other responses to letters. I don't know who's writing these but they don't always come off as amusing as Mr. Goodwin's. Stories in this issue range from a yawn to average. Even Joe Lansdale's tale doesn't excite.
