They’re creepy and they’re kooky…

Back Issue magazine will be getting a jump start on Halloween in September with Issue #124 — spotlighting “Horrific Heroes,” such as Man-Thing, the Demon, the Creeper and other freaky faves.

Dig the official description:

October 2020 – 84 FULL-COLOR pages

Horrific Heroes shamble forth in Back Issue #124! Bronze Age histories of Man-Thing, the Demon, and the Creeper, Atlas/Seaboard’s horrifying heroes, and Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch) rides again! Featuring the work of Chris Claremont, Gerry Conway, Ernie Colon, Michael Golden, Jack Kirby, Mike Ploog, Javier Saltares, Mark Texiera, and more. Man-Thing cover by Rudy Nebres. Edited by Michael Eury.

A few thoughts:

Back Issue #124 is scheduled to ship Sept. 16 — give or take a week or so. Either way, it’s plenty of time before Halloween and I can certainly see myself reading the issue while listening to this.

— As always, you’ll be able to get BI at your comics shop but you can also get it straight from publisher TwoMorrows. You can even click here now to pre-order.

— I rarely write about him, but the Creeper is a favorite of mine. I miss having him around. Just mentioning that.

  1. The Brave and the Bold #178 was my first time seeing the CREEPER in action.
    Really like the character, especially his Bronze Age stories.
    Looking forward to reading BACK ISSUE as always.
