Monocyte – Halloween Horror At Its Best

I’m one of those guys that takes my horror seriously. I love a good horror story. What people don’t realize is that it doesn’t take blood and gore to make a great horror story. It doesn’t have to scare the [...]

A Special Halloween Q&A With Horror Master Steve Niles

In the mind of Comic Booked’s staff, nothing screams Halloween like 30 Days of Night horror writer Steve Niles. After a mad rush that finished with his LUST Kickstarter and three new comic books out, Steve took some time to [...]

Silent Hill: Revelation Review

There’s a sword fight between Pyramid Head and another monster.  No, I’m not kidding.  Silent Hill: Revelation (3D) eschews any sense of pacing, subtly, or even horror, managing the seemingly impossible task of taking forever to make, while being farted [...]

Moranic Reviews: Identity Thief

Sometimes, when you’re in search for something new and different, it can be a hard task, especially when you travel to your local comic shop and see pretty much clones of the same thing over and over. Trying to find [...]

Review|Z-Girl and the 4 Tigers #3

Z-Girl and the 4 Tigers is best described and an east meets west fantasy with a bit of horror in the mix. The book itself contains all the elements that make a comic great. There is an interesting and unique [...]

The Infernal Man-Thing #3

Review: Infernal Man-Thing #3

Calling the final issue of ​Infernal Man-Thing ​”bleak” doesn’t quite do justice to just how soul-crushing it really is.  As a post-script to Steve Gerber‘s classic 70’s run with the swamp monster, and sequel to the story ​Song-Cry of the [...]

Winter City is a twelve part horror thriller from the land down under. Australia may not be well known for its independent comic book scene, but with books like this they certainly should be. This review will cover the first [...]

Night of 1,000 Wolves #3

Review: Night of 1,000 Wolves #3

Okay, I’ve already done this twice before.  I’ve made it abundantly clear that ​Night of 1,000 Wolves​ hasn’t exactly been what I consider good horror, or even good fiction, what with its lumpy, paint-by-numbers plot and complete and total indifference [...]

Halloween Eve Cover by Amy Reeder

Halloween Eve from Image Comics in October

What do you get when you combine a snarky attitude with a love of cosplay, and add a pinch of macabre supernatural? From the sound of it, you get Halloween Eve from Image Comics. From the minds of Brandon Montclare [...]

Fatale #6

Review: Fatale #6

Historically speaking, the 1970s are sometimes regarded as the crash of the 60s.  The gains made in the civil rights movement and the euphoric sense amongst anti-war protesters that they could change the world with peace, love, and understanding gave [...]

Night of 1,000 Wolves #2

Review: Night of 1,000 Wolves #2

For the first issue, I didn’t have many kind things to say about Night of 1,000 Wolves, on account of the characters being nonexistent, the plotting less than that, and the horror being of the cheaply-done haunted house variety.  On [...]
