Sabrina's Very Own Creepshow!

This alternate cover for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #5 by Robert Hack makes no secret of it's origins as a swipe/homage of a famous image by EC great Jack Kamen for the movie Creepshow.

Here are the posters on Sabrina's wall, all offering some insights into the story.

And here's the comic book Sabrina's reading, a wonderfully bright example of the work of the late great Grey Morrow for Archie's brief Red Circle Sorcery title. 

All in all an incredibly fun cover image which offers up a nifty shout out to a real classic.

  1. Wow, that is a very tasteful and suitably reverential homage. Thanks for insights in the changes, Rip.

    1. I found it a lot of fun. Many homages today are rather weak, this one is very strong.

  2. I've got to echo monkeyspacepants, and add thanks for pulling the source posters for closer look, and to show how much thought and authenticity went into the image.
    And i love that they used the old Red Circle classic for their in-world comic.

    Hmm... that might make an interesting focus for some blog posts - art within art, such as the posters recreated within this cover.
