    “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.

    “BUSTER VOODOO” (Book Review)

    I’ve been itching to review this unique, provocative, haunted and heartbreaking horror novel since I devoured it in one round-trip flight, two long crazy months ago. Being busy as shit has kept me from doing so, and it kills me, because I’d like to flood you with the kind of detailed richness that this book deserves, and I’m afraid my overloading memory banks may not be up to the task.

    “RASPUTIN” #1 (Comic Review)

    Of all of the powerful men to have graced human history, none have been more esoteric and mysterious as Grigori Rasputin. Part mystic, part political advisor, all beard, Rasputin’s life and much questioned death has become the go-to story point for authors who wish to add a bit of dark villainy into their plot. Yet, despite his appearance in works such as HELLBOY and HELLBLAZER, he’s yet to tell his side of the story. Until now.

    “COLDER: THE BAD SEED #1″ (Comic Review)

    When COLDER first hit shelves in late 2012, no one quite knew what to expect. With its dimension-hopping protagonist, panoramic horror-scapes, and a story that explores the very depths of human insanity, the sleeper hit soon rose in the comic ranks and even managed to snatch itself a coveted Eisner nomination. With the work’s overwhelming success, the once limited series is now seeing its second story arc and bringing back with it all the gruesome madness that made it famous. THE BAD SEED picks up from where the previous arc ended and introduces a new villain almost immediately after the disposal of the old one, proving there is never respite when dealing with terminally insane.

    “CUTTER” (Comic Review)

    Bullied kids are always hot fodder for the next big horror hit. From CARRIE to WITCHBOARD, hell hath no fury like an angry teenager with supernatural powers. Digging deep into the pubescent mythos, Top Cow/Image’s latest, CUTTER, brings all that hormone-driven terror to the comic world. Reading like a fast-paced horror thriller, the story follows a group of loosely connected friends who are forced to face some dark secrets when their ranks start dying. While not the most original idea, the comic attempts its best at reviving the dated concept, resulting in a mixed bag of hits and misses.

    Grant Morrison’s “ANNIHILATOR” (Comic Review)

    Grant Morrison has long been the industry go-to for a taste of the bizarre and unsettling. From monumental moments in the Batman universe, to the re-vamping of forgotten characters, whenever he graces the author nameplate, big things are sure to follow. With Legendary Entertainment now firmly in the comic book game, Morrison’s stepped away from his superhero duties to create an original work titled ANNIHILATOR. A sci-fi book of epic proportions, ANNIHILATOR treats its readers to a tour-de-force of unfiltered, Morrison-inspired madness.

    “HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN #1″ (Comic Review)

    Horror is full of tropes. Established ideas and worn-out scenarios plague the genre so much that so that spoofs and parody are just as common. Running for a solid decade, HACK/SLASH has been a long time favorite for readers who are bit burned out on the repetitive nature of the entertainment of fear. Despite the comic becoming a more serious affair of late—introducing a running story-line and romantic interests for the lead—it still remains fairly tongue-in-cheek, filled with eighties monsters and scantily dressed ladies.

    “BALTIMORE: THE WITCH OF HARJU” #1 (Comic Review)

    Thanks to the enduring popularity of HELLBOY, creator Mike Mignola has become a staple in the comics industry. With his unique take of Victorian ghost stories mixed with modern monsters, he has crafted go-to reads for newbies and old-time screamers. But despite his overwhelming success, the writer still has some low flying works. Most notably: BALTIMORE, the tale of one man and his war against a world taken over by vampires.

    “THE SQUIDDER #1″ (Comic Review)

    Ben Templesmith has made a career out of his bizarre horror art and flesh burnt color pallete. While he’s better known for the work he’s done with his partner in crime, Steve Niles, such as 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, HELLSPAWN and CRIMINAL MACABRE, Templesmith has done created plenty of his own comics, penning stories as strangely grotesque as his illustrations. The latest is THE SQUIDDER, Templesmith’s crowdfunded creator-owned tale of apocalyptic madness that’s akin to MAD MAX VS. CTHULHU.
