Exploring The Grotesque Insanity of DISSOLVING CLASSROOM

I first stumbled on author Junji Ito a few years back while I was working at Fangoria. The post- RINGU and JU-ON J-horror craze was in full swing, and I was deeply enjoying all the Asian cinema that was making its way overseas. That’s when I first saw SPIRAL (aka UZUMAKI), a strange and surreal […]

Is HELLBOY Returning With STRANGER THINGS’ David Harbour & Neil Marshall Directing?

Well, this kind of came out of nowhere! It started with a Facebook post by famed comic book artist & HELLBOY creator Mike Mignola. This came as a huge shock to HELLBOY fans, considering Guillermo del Toro had helmed the first two HELLBOY movies with Ron Perlman in the title role. The pair had always […]

The CREEPSHOW Graphic Novel Is Now Back In Print!

This is just awesome news! I’ve had horror anthologies on the brain quite a bit lately. Part of it has to do with our recent episode of Shock Waves where we built our own perfect horror anthologies by picking our favorites segments and wrap-around stories. Another reason may be because Scream Factory just put out […]

Is DC on the Right Track?

Imagine, for a moment, that you find the Cosmic Treadmill, the device Flash uses to travel through time in the comics. There you are, little old you (or young you, I don’t want to be ageist), with a machine that can take you back to any point you want. Imagine that you get into it […]

Who Killed THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN’s Girlfriend Gwen Stacy?

In the near 80 years of superhero comics, there are surprisingly few character deaths that stand out, mainly because comics keep bringing characters back to life. Hell, Marvel’s Jean Grey has died and come back so many times that it is a running gag in the X-Men books at this point. When it comes down […]

Three full months have come and gone since the calendar called for a swap, and inside of those three months we’ve seen a few kick ass movies (GET OUT, SPLIT, THE DEVIL’S CANDY and FREAK OUT are among the years’ finest, thus far). That’s enough to keep most of us interested, but it may not […]

What Happened to All the Horror Superheroes?

From about 2010 through 2015, audiences could rely on the regular appearance of sternly-worded editorials from just about every entertainment journalism outlet that the superhero film trend – that unstoppable pop culture steamroller – was on the verge of collapse. The editorialists, likely operating from a place of healthy blockbuster fatigue, kept on pointing out […]

A Look Back At Marvel’s Marvelous Monsters!

Marvel Comics is a bit of a juggernaut these days. In fact, they have been for a few years. With the backing of Disney and a solid and formidable line up of creators, writers, artists and more, Marvel has been pumping out yearly (sometimes twice a year) events and right now that event is something […]
