Read The Creeps Online Free - A follow-up to the New York Times best-selling Deep Dark Fears: a second volume of comics based on people’s quirky, spooky, hilarious, and terrifying fears.
Illustrator, animator, teacher, and comic artist Fran Krause has touched a collective nerve with his wildly popular web comic series–and subsequent New York Times best-selling book–Deep Dark Fears. Here he brings readers more of the creepy, funny, and idiosyncratic fears they love illustrated in comic form–such as the fear that your pets will tell other animals all your embarrassing secrets, or that someone uses your house while you’re not home–as well as two longer comic short-stories about ghosts.

more wonderfully weird fears, illustrated. and those are particularly great airborn eyeballs, right?
i reviewed the first volume of this over here (linked in case you wanna look at the pictures), and this second book is more of the same, in the best way possible.

I had no idea that Fran Krause's Deep Dark Fears would have a follow up when I read it earlier this month, so I was beyond excited to find out about this newest collection. Here he brings readers more of the creepy, funny, and idiosyncratic fears they love illustrated in comic form–such as the fe...

The Creeps was an adorable collection of comic strips about our daily fears, some valid- others completely silly. What fun!
There is nothing complicated here, but what I found myself thinking about most of all when I finished was the fact that inside- we are so much alike as a people, as human b...

I loved this book! With quirky illustrations, these comics tapped into urban legends, campfire stories and other irrational (or so we're made to believe) fears we already have, along with some new ones spawned during reading The Creeps.
While reading I vacillated between "Me, too!!" and "Oh, I nev...

The Creeps, in a nutshell, is an illustrated compilation of user-submitted fears, put into an artistic format. Fran takes users' fears and puts them into these little panels that are so easy to relate to, it's ridiculous. I couldn't help but laugh at a few of them because they just sounded so fam...

I requested a copy of this on NetGalley after reading the synopsis and thinking it sounded awesome. I wasn’t a reader of the online comic but the premise sounded fun. It didn’t let me down, the watercolour style illustrations where great. Fran Krause expresses rational and irrational fears in sho...

“The Creeps” is filled with cartoons depicting various fears ranging from the rational to far beyond the irrational. I don’t think anyone can go through it without finding something they relate to. Some of it is funny, some of it is horrifying, and I finished it having some creepy crawly fears I...

Not much to say about this graphic novel only that it was cute. It's about deep and dark fears but with the cartoonish illustrations it just made it funny for me. Some of the fears were also super ridiculous but I appreciate the author for having a quirky sense of creativity and hu...

You may also find this review on Books, Vertigo & Tea.
This review is going to be short and sweet because quite simply this graphic novel is. But that is not to discredit its worth, as I found plenty within the quaintly illustrated pages.
We all know of fear and normally harbor a bit of our own...

This was a cute way to wake up... now I just wanna stay in bed because I'm afraid of everything in the world basically.
But really, what I liked about this is how real irrational fears are, and when they are spoken out loud, or written in a comic, I feel like the fear loses some of its power. Eve...
