Creepy 135

Another rather dull later issue of Creepy. The cover is by Richard Courtney.

First is "The Wedding Gift!" by Fred Carillo (art) and Budd Lewis (story), about a pair of newly weds who head to a large house only for the husband to leave due to an old woman requesting help. The wife finds ghosts there and she dies, being a sacrifice for the husband, which enables the old woman, his mother, to live longer.

"...For We Have Sinned" with art by Martin Salvador and story by Bill Dubay is second, featuring a christmas story about a policeman and a crazy murderer. This is a sequel to the story "Bless Us, Father..." from Creepy 59.

"Angel Hair Wine" by Jun Lofamia (art) and Gerry Boudreau (story) follows, about a man who finds a bar where the magical wine of the title is served. He is offered a case of the wine for his hand and initially refuses, but then goes along with it.

The cover story is "Strange in a Strange Land!" by Peter Hsu (art) and Rich Margopoulos (story). It features a giant robot that comes to Earth and wreaks havoc.

"Morbid Love Story" is next, by Auraleon (art) and Michael Fleisher (story). The story is about a woman having an affair and the lover murders her husband, but she breaks things off which causes him to kill himself. Aside from the weak ending, an okay story, the best of the issue.

Last is "Yonder Star" by Steve Gan (art) and Budd Lewis (story), which tells of the three wisemen who witnessed Jesus's birth and how a downed jet was really what led them there, not a star.

Can you tell by my very long summaries just how boring this issue was? Avoid at all costs unless you're a Warren completist.
