Trailer For John Carpenter’s TALES FOR A HALLOWEEN NIGHT VOL. 3 Debuts!

For most of us, when we think “Halloween,” we think John Carpenter. And who better to continue delivering creepy tales set around our favorite holiday than the man who gave us Michael Myers! From Storm King Productions, the third in a series of graphic novels has been announced and queued up for release this September […]

Joe Hill’s LOCKE & KEY Comes To Hulu From BATES MOTEL’s Carlton Cuse

This is tremendously exciting news. LOCKE & KEY is one of those incredible horror related properties that’s been screaming for a proper live adaptation. And it’s come close in the past! But we’ve never publicly seen those results. Now, perhaps because of the popularity of shows like STRANGER THINGS, coupled with the success of a […]

Creature Features In Burbank Pays Tribute To The Great Bernie Wrightson

Growing up, I was always a huge Stephen King fan. One of the earliest films I remember seeing on TV was SILVER BULLET, and as a budding young horror fan that was attempting to expand upon my vernacular, I tried to track down whatever King books I could find at the local book store, even […]

How LOCKE & KEY Could Be The Next STRANGER THINGS

Netflix’s STRANGER THINGS took the world by storm. For a few weeks, you couldn’t read a story that didn’t somehow try to connect to the series – I’m honestly shocked that neither Clinton or Trump have made references to the show in their speeches – and now we’re coming out of it. The show has […]

Five of the Weirdest Characters to Grace the Four Colored Page

If you read comic books long enough, you’ll see some real weird characters. After all, we have nearly 100 years of comics, filled with millions of characters and most of those characters are really kooky. And I’m not talking Deadpool style kooky where they crack wise and break the fourth wall, I’m talking characters like […]

Summer Reading: Catch Up On Some Great Comics

Summer. A time for sitting in the sun on a beach, or if you’re more like me, hiding away in a dark room with stacks of comic books. We, the ones David Wain and Michael Showalter so aptly named “the indoor kids” have a love for the four color page, and we enjoy it no […]

It’s Time For Hollywood To Look At Horror Comics

At this point, it’s hard to imagine a summer without superhero movies. I’m not here to bash that, I love superhero movies, and I’m not one to agree with the “superhero fatigue” idea (see the grosses for DEADPOOL and CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR for reasons why that theory is very wrong). What I don’t get […]

From SWAMP THING to PREACHER: The History of Vertigo Comics

Karen Berger started working at DC Comics straight out of college in 1979. Smarter than most of her peers, and twice as dedicated, Karen was the assistant to Paul Levitz, who was a wunderkind himself. Levitz had spent the 70s building his name at DC, and would become one of the most important writers and […]

Scare ‘Em Dead III: The Scarening! Five Horrifying HAUNT OF FEAR Covers!

For the last few weeks, we’ve taken a look at some of the best covers from TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF TERROR. I would be remiss if I didn’t take some time to also share the beautiful, freaky art of the third of the trilogy of terror titles from EC Comics, THE HAUNT […]

Keep Scaring ‘Em Dead! Five Vicious VAULT OF HORROR Covers

Last week, we brought you five of the most frightening TALES FROM THE CRYPT covers and it seems that some of you AXED for more! Get it? Axed? Like how the Crypt Keeper always did those wordplay jokes? On the show? Maybe I’ll leave the jokes to the professionals. Today we’ll be looking at some […]

Scare ‘Em Dead! Five Frightening TALES FROM THE CRYPT Covers

TALES FROM THE CRYPT is coming back to TV, and we’re all hopeful that they can recapture the magic of the last series. Obviously, being in TNT, the show won’t be able to be as nasty as it was on HBO, but that doesn’t mean they can’t tell some fantastic stories. Fingers crossed! It is […]

SUPERMAN/ALIENS – The Best of Both Worlds

In 1992, two pop-culture icons seemingly died. The bigger of the two was Superman, who faced his death as a hero in the pages of SUPERMAN #75. The other was the ALIEN franchise, with the critical and commercial flop of ALIEN 3 it seemed unlikely that we would see another ALIEN film anytime soon. Of […]

5 Great Horror Comics You Probably Haven’t Heard Of

It’s been over half a decade since horror comics reigned supreme, and superhero comics were all but passé. But the genre never left the stands completely, and has been constantly reinventing itself to suit the needs of generation after generation. There have always been breakout horror comics that everybody knows about – THE WALKING DEAD, […]
