Overall the stories were usually fantastical in nature, sometimes taking place in fantasy worlds or outer space. Near the end of its original run stories would common become much more realistic in setting.

In 2012 Dark Horse revived Creepy, reprinting all the old issues as well as publishing a new monthly anthology comic.
