    The news is out: I've got a story appearing in CREEPY COMICS #1, Dark Horse Comics' resurrection of the classic horror series. CREEPY COMICS #1 is out July 15th, Eric Powell paints the cover, and my little story is illustrated by the fantastic Brian Churilla. I'm very excited to get this out there and hope this is the first of many stories I do for Dark Horse. Here's the solicit from Dark Horse's website:

    Creepy Comics #1
    Writer: Neil Kleid, Joe Harris, Dan Braun, Mike Woods
    Artist: Angelo Torres, Bernie Wrightson, Jason Shawn Alexander, and others
    Cover Artist: Eric Powell

    What's black and white and clawing its way onto your reading list? It's the newly resurrected Creepy, of course! Now, don't fret, my putrid pets -- these new terror tales are cut from the same cursed cloth as the outlandish originals, telling contemporary horror stories with gorgeously ghoulish art from a lineup that'll make you lose your head! Original Creepy artist Angelo Torres teams up with devilish Dan Braun on "Hell Hound Blues"; Michael Woods and artist Saskia Gutekunst serve up a dose of "Chemical 13"; Neil Kleid and Brian Churilla provide "All the Help You Need" at a weird weight-loss camp; and jaundiced Jason Shawn Alexander brings his phenomenal painting skills to Joe Harris's "The Curse"! Plus Bernie Wrightson, the return of "Loathsome Lore," and more. All this, plus one classic story from Uncle Creepy's dank dungeon, and you've got 48 freakish pages of terror to bring home to mummy!
    Publication Date: July 15, 2009
    Format: b&w, 48 pages
    Price: $4.99
    UPC: 7 61568 15862 5 00111

    Sweet! Brian told me he had a story in CREEPY (nice guy, by the way), but I didn't know it was by you. Good job Neil!

    Thanks, y'all. I promise not to disappoint... and since I'm the least talented guy in here, you're sure to dig this one.

    Congrats Neil!

    I'm actually one of the "and more" guys in the first issue... It's my first professional work, so I'm feeling pretty honored to be sharing those pages with all the luminaries in the book.
    They actually published the story in Myspace:DHP a while back as well, but I'm really excited about seeing it in print!

    Well done, my friend.

    Hey Andrew! I actually collaborate on Lukas Ketner on Witch Doctor. Nice to see you around! (BTW — very nice story!)

    (... And wait, they're republishing that story in the first issue? Lukas doesn't actually know that — he thought he needed to wait til the DHP v.3 collection to get a print copy of it! I'll have to let him know that he's sharing an issue with Wrightson, with a cover by Eric Powell!)
