Everything about horror comics, from pre-code to modern. News, reviews and stories.
Horror comics hit such a spectacular stride during the ‘40s and ‘50s, under imprints like EC (Tales From the Crypt) before segueing to Warren (Creepy, Eerie), that one can’t help but wonder why the genre has never risen to those same heights in the ensuing years.
Aided by publishers like Warren and EC, the horror genre built itself into the foundation of sequential art just as vigorously as superheroes, romance or science fiction.
Comic books are notoriously difficult to make scary. They don’t have the advantage of sound to build atmosphere, and there is no possibility of jump-scares. Creators must rely on storytelling, mood, and still images alone.
