    Are You Reading “HAUNTED HORROR”?

    As their numbers dwindle, pre-code horror comics have become a staple of the comic collectors’ market. From swarming the industry with ghoulish monsters and vengeful spirits in the late 1940s to mass comic burnings less than a decade later, the Comics Code Authority changed everything about what was acceptable to read. Thanks to their determination to protect America’s children, swarms of horror titles have been lost to modern readers, until recently. Publishers such as Dark Horse and Fantagraphics have been snatching up long forgotten titles and re-printing them in hardcover collections, beautifully recreating the original feel of the work. Following their success, IDW and partner Yoe Books! hopped aboard the terror train as well, re-publishing stories from the contraband comics in HAUNTED HORROR for easy reading. Unlike its predecessors though, these tales are being released in a single issue format, recalling that classic feeling of picking up your favorite, lurid title at the local dime store.

    Report: Skinny Puppy, Live in Toronto

    It was colder than a mother-in-law’s kiss Tuesday night in Toronto, but that didn’t stop an army of multi-generational Skinny Puppy fans from making the pilgrimage to a picturesque, remote industrial area dubbed The Docks to see the three decades-old electronic band that not only refuse to die, but sonically seem to get sharper with age.

    “SCREAM IN THE DARK” (CD Review)

    Filmmaker Dante Tomaselli (pictured, creator of TORTURE CHAMBER, SATAN’S PLAYGROUND and others) recently released SCREAM IN THE DARK, his first standalone audio CD. This seems like a perfectly natural progression, as Tomaselli pays just as much attention to scoring his films as he does to the exploits of his characters.

    “EVIL ERNIE VOL. 1: ORIGIN OF EVIL” (Comic Review)

    When Chaos! Comics bankrupted in 2002, the fate of their most popular characters went up on the auction block to be picked over and sold. Luckily, the majority of the licenses were bought up by Devils Due Publishing and when they folded, were handed over to Dynamite Press, where they sat waiting for another chance. In 2012, Chaos’ most prolific character, Evil Ernie, finally got re-released in a brand new adventure: a six issue mini-series leading to a collected graphic novel that hit shelves last month. A re-telling of Ernie’s tragic origins, Dynamite attempts to continue what Chaos! Comics started: pure, unadulterated Armageddon.
