    Was just perusing some of the "older" titles, and--is it me, or is there no message board/forum spot to comment on the AWESOME comic lookalike 1982 issue of the movie tie-in for CREEPSHOW? Man, I loved that when I was eleven or twelve...I'll never forgive my uncle Butch, the tireless reader and natural book thief, who took this home to read over a weekend and lost forever. I've never replaced it--and now it's quite the collector's item, by the listed prices on eBay and other sites. Dammit!

    Anybody else pick this up as a pre-teen, for something like seven or eight bucks, brand new?!

    Start looking in used bookstores or thrift stores. I have run across a few copies here and there.

    You know, I used to see 'em quite frequently--even a brand new copy in Hastings, a "big" regional chain here in Texas, for a list price of $14.95. That was something like seven or ten years ago...dammit! I'll keep on lookin' though, y'know.

    Have contacted Jordan to add Creepshow to the Other Works section. Can't believe we missed that one--good catch!

    I have seen a few copies at our local bookstore. They sell for around $5 here.

    Buy all they have and I will double your money then sell them for $50 bucks anywhere in the nation (actually I would hoard them in my treasure trunk). bobbo is correct. If they are originals and not reprints (not aware of any) then they sell for higher than even most precode ECs. Try buying an original Creepshow poster and you will get your feelings hurt fast. Creepshow 2 can be had affordably but it's not the one everyone wants naturally. I wasn't aware that Berni Wrightson did the artwork for Creepshow until I had the unique (ha) idea to buy one. I tip my hat to whoever hired him. They knew horror comics.

    ...I have an original that I'm proud to include in my collection....

    Little known fact: The bookclub edition has the movie information (stars, director, producer, writer, etc.) listed on the back cover. The regular edition doesn't. Odd.....
