Middle School Monster Hunters: Chris Schweizer On 'The Creeps'
The people of Pumpkins County have two major problems. The one they know about is the Creeps, a gang of four middle schoolers who are constantly running around making trouble for everyone else. The one they don't know about --- or at least that they don't talk about --- is that their town is constantly under attack by all kinds of supernatural weirdness, and the Creeps are the only ones trying to put a stop to it before everyone is replaced by frog zombies or devoured by trolls. That's the premise of Chris Schweizer's The Creeps, a series of graphic novels for kids that sees it second horror-packed installment released this month. To get a little more information, ComicsAlliance spoke to Schweizer about creating horror comics for kids, why the Creeps will never catch a break from their classmates, and the strange way that his own childhood heroism was rewarded by roast beef sandwiches.
