    “MADAME FRANKENSTEIN, VOLUME 1″ (Comic Book Review)

    While female versions of Frankenstein’s monster tend to fall by the wayside in preference to the more classical, male rendition of the village-terrorizing creature, lady monsters are surprisingly not as uncommon as you think. From Universal Studios’ vintage tale of horrific love, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, to the more recent-ish FRANKENHOOKER, women and the classic Shelley work have crossed paths on more than one occasion. Thanks to Image Comics’ newest graphic novel horror, MADAME FRANKENSTEIN, we get another female-led rendition to add to the meager collection.

    “FRANKENSTEIN UNDERGROUND” (Comic Book Review)

    It’s tough to be Frankenstein’s monster. When you’re not being hunted, shot at, or chased out of town by a horde of angry, fire-wielding villagers, you’re accidently killing everything you love. But, thanks to his seemingly immortal life (and license-free image) horror fans are treated to new tales and re-imaginings of his sordid existence by everyone from movie directors to comic creators. Once again, we are presented with the further adventures of the hulking figure via Mike Mignola’s endless imagination, which puts Frankenstein’s monster deep into the jungles of Mexico. Forgoing blood and violence for a more philosophical approach to the creature, FRANKENSTEIN UNDERGROUND explores how deep human fear can go.

    “SHRIEKS AND SHIVERS: FROM THE HORROR ZINE” (Book Review)

    Horror Zine founder and editor, Jeani Rector has masterfully put together a collection of spine-chilling and macabre tales in her third installment of anthologies SHRIEKS AND SHIVERS: FROM THE HORROR ZINE. The bite-sized short stories showcase Rectors flair as not just an editor, but for seeking out the best in known and up and coming talent in the horror fiction genre in her third offering from THE HORROR ZINE. And although a new publisher is on board for this anthology (Post Mortem Press) the novel still follows the same solid format as the two previous compilations.

    “HOLY F*CK” (Comic Book Review)

    Nothing sells a work faster than religious controversy. Something about insulting the moral, right wing minds of conservative culture tickles the fans pink, especially when it’s so over-the-top that even the stiffest upper lip would crack a smile. From Garth “The Menace” Ennis’ PREACHER to Robert Kirkman’s BATTLE POPE, comics have never shied away from pushing the boundaries of good taste and HOLY F*CK is no exception as it follows the long tradition of mocking Christianity in comic books. Reading like a religious exploitation film brought to the four panel world, HOLY F*CK brings babes and bikes to God’s holy hand, creating a globe-trotting adventure to save the end of the world… that is if we ever get Jesus off of crack.

    “THE TWILIGHT ZONE #1″ (Comic Book Review)

    THE TWILIGHT ZONE has been a staple of horror ever since its inception back in the late 1950’s. Influencing everyone from Iron Maiden to THE SIMPSONS to our very own Editor-in-Chief Chris Alexander, the show has catapulted itself as a go-to terror for anyone who craves a bit of the strange. And considering its long and sordid history, it’s no surprise that the seminal series would once again find its way into comic books. Launching a brand new series, THE TWILIGHT ZONE #1 brings back that old school vibe while updating itself for the modern era, eagerly inviting new readers to its pages.

    “LADY KILLER #1″ (Comic Book Review)

    If there is one thing that the 1950’s are best known for, it’s cold war paranoia. With every fire drill, potential Russian invasion and failed space race marking another notch in the Communist agenda, imagination ran wild with the possibility of foreign invasion. Mix this with Cuban political ties and rumored super-spies right under the suburban family’s nose, it was truly a time to be alive.

    “Garbage Pail Kids: Puketacular #1″ (Comic Book Review)

    With the recent influx of all things ’80s and ’90s flooding the entertainment marketplace, it would only be a matter of time before we saw the snot-smeared faces of the Garbage Pail Kids again. Part babies and part bodily functions, the GP Kids have been around in form or another since 1985. Now, thanks to IDW comics, we can experience them in full, comic book glory!

    “PRETTY LITTLE DEAD GIRLS” (Book Review)

    Even judged by the ridiculously high bar that Mercedes M. Yardley set and reset via a quick succession of gorgeous, perception-altering releases—BEAUTIFUL SORROWS (2012), APOCALYPTIC MONTESSA AND NUCLEAR LULU: A TALE OF ATOMIC LOVE (2013), NAMELESS: THE DARKNESS COMES (2014)—the rising “dark whimsy” author’s latest, PRETTY LITTLE DEAD GIRLS, serves up a particularly delectable, eccentric feast of inspiring, soul-walloping lyrical beauty in the form of a genuinely affecting outsider love story.

    “GONERS #3″ (Comic Book Review)

    With Image Comics’ newest horror endeavor, GONERS, readers are reminded that paranormal hunting can very much be a family friendly affair. Much like the Winchesters from SUPERNATURAL, the Latimer family is never one to shy away from an exorcism or chasing a monster to the ends of the world, offering a comic that is as highly adventurous as it is steeped in mythology. As issue three prepares to hit stands, we see the series really take flight, exploring a bit more of the history of the family while following the mis-adventures of their two youngest practitioners after the death of their parents. With its pop-inspired art style and fantastically timed scares (with the just the perfect amount of quips), GONERS will undoubtedly be the sleeper hit of the new year.

    “GRINDHOUSE: DOORS OPEN AT MIDNIGHT, VOLUME 2″ (Comic Review)

    Comic books and grindhouse films are practically family: with both having been accused of not only corrupting America’s youth but lowering the standards of entertainment as a whole, it would only be a matter of time before these long lost twins would once again cross paths. Enter Dark Horse’s new horror series GRINDHOUSE, an unapologetic kitsch work that bridges the gap between the titans while embracing the exploitative nature of the late 1970’s low budget horror phenomena. While perhaps the not first comic to take the path of “low-brow murder porn,” GRINDHOUSE is one of the few to have done it so well, with some of Dark Horses finest talent adding their own personal touches of the macabre.
