    “FRAGMENTS OF HORROR” (Comic Book Review)

    Japanese horror manga is a small but popular percentage of comics that come from the Land of the Rising Sun. While most fans are aware of the more popular titles such as ATTACK ON TITAN and HELLSING, there is a whole world of unexplored, smaller works that are more akin to the traditional horror of demons, ghosts, and madness. One of the most prolific creators to contribute to the genre is manga master Junji Ito. Most recognized for his works-turned-movies TOMIE and UZUMAKI, Ito has written and drawn an endless array of mind-boggling works ranging from black comedy to the perverted terrors of the human mind and the merciless universe and, thanks to Viz Media, we are once again graced with a new collection of his translated works titled FRAGMENTS OF HORROR. Both written and illustrated by Ito, it’s an easy introduction to his work for new fans while still keeping true to the intense nature to which seasoned fans have grown accustomed.

    Exclusive Report: Dark MoFo Fest, Part II

    Flying in from the mainland of Australia to Launceston Tasmania, the lighthearted  mood had changed. It was much colder, and spirits and ghosts were noticeably among us. Tragedy hung over the island in the low lying clouds and even wearing three pairs of pants, I couldn’t shake the chill, with cold winds from the Antarctic pole blowing, and I was there all alone.

    “KUROSAGI CORPSE DELIVERY SERVICE, VOLUME 14” (Comic Book Review)

    After a nearly two and half year wait between volumes, Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service volume 14 finally hits US shores later this month. While many may fear that the wait would spoil the expectation, the newest arrival is just as good as the previous volumes. While definitely a horror comic, KCDS has always focused more on exploring Japanese death rites and fulfilling the last wishes of the dearly departed, and volume 14 expands on this premise as the five central figures go about finding fresh bodies and bringing them home, wherever it may be. It’s an exceptional piece of philosophic horror from our friends across the ocean and is an easy gateway for those who wish to read Japanese manga but prefer a more mature work.

    Memories of Lee: Tony Timpone Remembers Christopher Lee, Part Three

    When my personal remembrances of the late Sir Christopher Lee left off last time (see here and here), the actor had just survived the clutches of three obsessed fans who hounded him at his one and only FANGORIA convention appearance. I thought I’d been lucky to meet the genre legend once, but as fate would have it, I would have two more memorable opportunities to hobnob with Lee in the years that followed…

    “BIRD BOX” (Book Review)

    I don’t know what they’re putting in the water in Detroit, but something really strange is going down in that town.

    It’s like some weird time-release hallucinogen is suddenly sluicing a rarified form of dreamlike paranoia and despair deep into its artistic community, provoking work that’s distinctively both subtle and jarring, simultaneously lulling and fucking with us, dragging us slowly but surely to a haunted place we’ve never seen before but instantly recognize in our souls. All in the constant grip of near-unbearable suspense.

    HORROR-RAMA, the fun-filled two-day fan event that celebrated its inaugural year last October in Toronto to great acclaim, returns again… bigger, bloodier and weirder than ever!

    Memories of Lee: Tony Timpone Remembers Christopher Lee, Part 2

    When my personal remembrances of Sir Christopher Lee left off last (see here), the British scream titan was hanging out with a few select enthusiasts and staff backstage at the 1990 FANGORIA Weekend of Horrors convention. Slightly frazzled by a trio of psycho fans who had accosted him earlier upon entering New York City’s fabled Hotel Pennsylvania, he’d leave all that behind as he took the stage inside the hotel’s Grand Ballroom, introduced by convention co-producer Adam Malin of Creation Entertainment.

    Memories of Lee: Tony Timpone Remembers Christopher Lee, Part 1

    Last week, we lost the last great horror star. Genre legend- in every sense of the word- Sir Christopher Lee left this mortal coil at age 93, leaving behind an amazing screen legacy, which is now being saluted all over the world as tributes deluge the Internet and TV. In 2011, I shared my trio of experiences meeting up with this British icon and personal hero on FANGORIA.com. Now seems like the perfect time to share them again.
