The partnership between Dynamite Entertainment and the horror film franchise Jeepers Creepers was announced at New York Comic Con last autumn, but no creative team was yet attached.
Now the publisher have revealed that Marc Andreyko (Batwoman, Clive Barker’s Nightbreed) will be the scribe on the new comics series debuting in April 2018, and it will be drawn by Kewber Baal (Kiss: The Elder, Jennifer Blood).
For those unfamiliar, theJeepers Creepers films are about “Midwestern murder and mayhem” starring The Creeper, an “ancient horror” that returns every 23 years to “feed . . . and kill!”
In Dynamite’s comic series Jeepers Creepers:
…grad student Devin Toulson is writing his dream thesis on Myths in American History, but when his research takes him on a journey reaching back centuries, Devin finds something horrifying. Something that crosses cultures, locations, and eras. Something that returns for a bloody feeding every 23 years. Will this young man’s investigation uncover simply an urban legend or will he come face to face with an immortal monster that has terrorized humanity from the shadows since man first walked the country?
Jeepers Creepers #1 will be listed in the April 2018 Previews catalog and will arrive in April 2018.
