Captain's Library: CREEPSHOW "The Crate" Part 1

It's the graphic novel adaptation of the movie inspired by horror comics of the 1950s...
...written by legendary writer Stephen King (adapting his own screenplay) and illustrated by equally-legendary comic book artist Berni Wrightson!
You think you're sorry now, Dexter?
You ain't seen nothing...yet...
This segment is one of two based on previously-published short stories by King.
The original tale was also called "The Crate" and appeared in Gallery Magazine.
It has since been reprinted in several anthologies, but you can read it online HERE.

Note: the movie had the story "Something to Tide You Over" as the next tale after "Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill", but the graphic novel places "The Crate" directly after "Lonesome Death...", followed by "Something...".
It's your choice to read "Something..." (which was my personal favorite segment) before or after this tale.
