Advanced Review: The Creep #1
The art by Jonathan Case is still tight and original. The dialogue is still completely believable. The story is still compelling and mysterious.
But I just feel like the tale of the private investigator suffering from acromegaly is one that needs to be brought more into the public eye.
There are no superheroes and no world-threatening space monsters, no super costumes or sci-fi equipment, not even explosions or gun-fire.
But what The Creep #1 has that a lot of comics don’t is well written people. The human beings in The Creep #1 are some of the most realistic and genuine people I’ve read. This is what John Arcudi does and this is what he does well.
I really don’t have much more to say than that. Sorry for the short and sweet review, but that’s just the way it is.
You need to read The Creep. Comic book fans need to have these comics in their collection just to remind themselves how great comics can be.
So get to your local comic shop and get your hands on The Creep #0 and tell your comic book guy that you want The Creep #1 when it hits shelves on September 12th. Throw down your US $3.50 and walk away with a comic that’s worth the price tag.
Oh, and did I mention the awesome Mike Mignola cover?
