Horror author Joe Hill’s short story Wolverton Station is getting a one-shot comic book adaptation from Skybound, and will be presented as a Creepshow story.

Creeping Into Wolverton Station

In this feature-length issue, Creepshow alum and New York Times Bestseller Joe Hill (NOS4R2, Heart-Shaped Box, Locke & Key) is joined by Jason Ciaramella (C is for Cthulu) and Michael Walsh (The Silver Coin) to adapt his acclaimed short story in an expanded format with new twists and turns…including a special appearance by The Creep! Gabriel Rodriguez (Locke & Key) and illustrator Maria Wolf provide alternate cover art for the release.

They tell the terrifying tale of a businessman whose commute is about to get a lot hairier when his train unexpectedly stops at Wolverton Station.

“I’m always glad to renew my acquaintance with The Creep and reconnect with the gleeful gross-outs that are the hallmark of Creepshow in all its manifestations, from film to TV to comics,” said Joe Hill of the announcement. “I wrote Wolverton Station over a decade ago, working longhand while I traveled the UK by train for a book tour, and right from the start I knew I was writing a Creepshow kind of thing. It’s the story of a cut-throat dealmaker, someone who thinks of himself as quite a wolf, running afoul of creatures whose fangs are in no way metaphorical. At its dark heart, it’s a fairy tale — not one of the modern fairy tales, the sort safely sanitized by Disney for mass consumption, but the older kind of fable, the sort with teeth. That kind of story is The Creep’s stock-and-trade and so it feels exactly right that the story should be adapted for Creepshow‘s pestilent pages.”

Creepshow is an anthology horror series on Shudder inspired by the 1982 film of the same name that was penned by Hill’s father Stephen King and directed by the legendary George A. Romero. The show’s fourth season is out now on Shudder, AMC and AMC+.

The Wolverton Station one-shot will arrive in comic book shops on March 27, 2024.
