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 [...]

Night of 1000 Wolves #1

Review: Night of 1,000 Wolves #1

(Written by Bobby Curnow, Art by Dave Wachter, Published by IDW) Where Brubaker and Phillips’ Fatale shows how horror comics can be done right, it’s only fitting that along comes an IDW title to serve as a nice little counterpoint.  [...]

Fatale #5

Review: Fatale #5

(Written by Ed Brubaker, Drawn by Sean Phillips, Published by Image) It’s kind of appropriate that Brubaker and Phillips set their crime-horror comic Fatale in the ’50s.  A lot of the elements in the series resemble the classic pulp influence [...]
