Comics Creepshow 12: Ghost Rider

The creation of a quality horror comics today, is very similar to the process the creators of “classic” horror films from the 1980’s followed. This is according to a conversation Tim Seeley, creator of HACK/SLASH, had on the most recent episode of the ‘Around Comics’ pod cast. To paraphrase Seeley, he said that the most famous of horror films from the 80’s and 90’s were all independent made films. He listed ‘Friday The Thirteenth”, “Halloween” and “Re-Animator” as examples.

Anticipatory Dead Space Review

Dead Space came out today.

Comics Creepshow 10: City of Dust

Steve Niles, Master Horror Comic Scribe, has been churning out book after book in the past two months. First off, was CRIMINAL MACABRE: CELL BLOCK 666, which was reviewed in Comics Creepshow 8. There were also his two Gotham city based books, BATMAN: GOTHAM AT MIDNIGHT and SIMON DARK. EPILOGUE, his new miniseries about a man turned into a vampire, who has decided to use his supernatural abilities to fight crime, was another possible candidate for review here, but I chose another book for this week’s column.

M. Night Shyamalan casts Marky Mark as a science teacher! How much closer to horror can you get? This far fetched tale of a cataclysmic event was panned by many when it hit the theaters; if you missed it then now's your chance to pan it too!
