The first original series based on EC horror comic-homaging, anthology movie Creepshow continues with this second issue.

Unfortunately, it’s just a bit underwhelming – as was the first issue.

Both stories this time around – the first concerning a possessive, perhaps even possessed, tree and its corruption of a child and the second story about an aging comic book creator and his fight to secure his royalties – feel somewhat anti-climactic, with conclusions that feel abrupt and explained properly only by the comic’s host, The Creep.

The cover is also completely unrelated to the contents, which is a bit odd.

There’s less gore than in issue one and the tone is creepier too, rather than just gross or tasteless. The art is superb across both stories; it’s just a shame that they both feel somewhat lacking, though the second is definitely a more satisfying tale than the first.

Unless you’re an absolute Creepshow obsessive, I wouldn’t recommend this series so far. It is very inconsistent and doesn’t even make great use of the Creepshow license in all honesty; there are far better examples of horror comics to sink your teeth into this spooky season.
