  • “EXMORTIS” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    World War II has become a literary genre all its own. Creating a generation of Americans who grew up watching Superman punch out Hitler while munching on rationed peas, it’s no wonder that the Great War would still cast a long shadow on the collective conscience. Luckily, the war eventually ended in 1945 because it’s not like Nazis can live forever… right? Well, they can if they’re zombies.

  • Q&A: Comic Book Creator Joe Pruett talks “THE BLACK EYED KIDS”

    ,,

    The internet is rampant with urban legends, be it the “Lost SIMPSONS Episode” or “Slenderman.” Like many urban legends, a majority of these tall tales are most likely not true. Despite that, it doesn’t stop fans and folklorists alike from spreading them like wildfire, often collected under the title “Creepypasta” (a play on the words Copy/Paste). Comic creator Joe Pruett has taken his love of digital horror and created a comic based one of the less-heard-of-but-just-as-creepy legend of “The Black Eyed Kids.”

  • “BILL AND TED GO TO HELL #2” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    If you were ever a child of the eighties or just simply a fan of Keanu Reeves back when he was still a surfing wild child, Bill S. Preston, Esquire and Ted “Theodore” Logan should be names you are intimately aware of. With sweet guitar riffs and totally bodacious babes, BILL AND TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE and its sequel BILL AND TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY  have been cult favorites for twenty five years, with a rumored threequel that could bring a new generation of fans into its fold. Yet, while we wait to see if the rumors are true, BOOM! Studios has given us a peak into what these two rude dudes have been up to, and let’s just say, it’s most atrocious.

  • Q&A: Writer/Artist Bo Hampton talks “3 DEVILS”

    ,,

    Few comic creators have had the lifelong stay power as Bo Hampton. A writer, artist, inker, letterer, and colorist, Hampton has been in and out of every angle of the industry and if history does repeat itself, he’ll keep doing it long after he’s dead too. His newest work, 3 DEVILS, features the extent of all his talents as he pens and illustrates an epic of devilish proportions.

He recently sat down with FANGORIA to explain what makes him tick.

  • “SHADOW GLASS #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    The Renaissance brought a lot of things to the world: math, science, big poofy collars, the end to that Debbie-downer known as the Middle Ages (I mean, right?). But despite its contribution to modern thought, it wasn’t all ballads and tight pants. With every step forward in progression, a deep undercurrent of hate and paranoia swept along its ruddy sewers, most notably with the early modern witch-hunts. For every pious Christian, there were five witches swarming around, eating babies and banging Satan; Dark Horse’s new comic, SHADOW GLASS, explores just that.

  • “THE DISCIPLINE” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Writer Peter Milligan has always been known to push the boundaries. A participant of the late ‘80s-early ‘90s DC Comics British Invasion scene, he has carved himself out a small but impressive niche alongside comic giants Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Garth Ennis, and Grant Morrison. Though he’s primarily known for his runs on DC/Vertigo title, he has stepped out to lend his talent to other publishers and, with THE DISCIPLINE, has landed on Image Comics doorstep. If the title sounds a bit sexy, that’s because it is, but toss all notions of Fifty Shades aside. Closer to an erotic horror than a horror you find in your moms erotic underwear drawer, THE DISCIPLINE explores the connections between sex, magic, and the madness that lies in between them.

  • “I AM A HERO” (Comic Book Review)

But then there is Hideo. When you’re already struggling with schizophrenia and paranoia, how can you really be sure there is a zombie apocalypse to begin with?

  • “THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    From middle school required reading to literary scholars, the name Edgar Allen Poe is recognized across the board as one of the greatest American storytellers of all time. Founder of the detective genre and father of the macabre, Poe has not only had his words printed on paper, but has been adapted into movies, plays, radio dramas, and, of course, comics. Action Comics is the newest company to add their own spin on one of his classics, going with a Poe staple, THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO. Unfortunately, while the creators gave it the full college try, the comic fell short of reaching the same depth that the original story had and lacked the antagonistic frenemy vibe that powered Poe’s words.
