Creepy 133

Pretty good, complex cover on this issue by Jeff Easely. Unfortunately the issue's stories are rather poor quality, as expected for this era. This issue features a one page introduction of Uncle Creepy by Rudy Nebres.

First story is "Junior" by Abel Laxamana (art) and Bill Dubay & Timothy Moriarty (story). The story is about a freak named Junior who looks like a tentacled monster. Although friendly, when he escapes into the outside world he is viewed as a monster and is killed.

Second is "The Dead Remember" by Martin Salvador (art) and Bruce Jones (story). The story is about a boy who takes a watch from a dead man who fears that the corpse will come after it to take it back. He brings it back to the body only to realize later that he brought it back to the wrong body.

Third is "Kobold" with artists Romeo Tanghal and Alfredo Alcala and writer Budd Lewis. The story is about an older man in a post-apocalyptic world who battles various monsters in order to reach his wife. Also, the world will be ending in a day. Didn't like this one.

Fourth is "Bring on the Clowns" by Fred Carillo (art) and Michael Fleisher (story). The story is about a serial killer who dresses up as a clown. An accountant gets into an encounter with a mugger and is mistaken for the killer, but he eventually comes across the real killer, who chops his head off then kills himself, leading everyone to believe for good that the accountant was the killer.

Last is "Savage Cargo" by Paul Neary (art) and Jim Stenstrum (story, as Alabaster Redzone), a sci-fi story about a woman and her bodyguard who are subdued by criminals. The criminals steal the egg of their pet, which ends up being a ferocious creature that will eat them.
