Insane asylums are something we like to think are things of the past. Dusty hallways overrun with screaming lunatics and barren women are only figments of what existed when man decided that the quickest cure for a touch of the maladies was an ice pick to the brain. Yet, while the name “insane asylum” is …Read More

What do you get when you mix Sex in the City, queer culture, and the Weird Sisters from Macbeth? If you said your Wiccan aunts that lives in a shared commune somewhere up north, you’re pretty damn close, but not quite there. You get Spell on Wheels (like Hell on Wheels, get it), Dark Horse’s …Read More

Comic author Cullen Bunn is one of the most unique writers to have emerged out of the modern comic fandom revival that we are currently a part of. Having traversed the wilds of every major publisher in the industry, it’s his take on the horror genre that has truly set him apart from other wandering …Read More

If there’s ever been a movie series that has launched with the momentum of a thousand nuclear wars, it’s The Dark Knight. But before that, it was Predator. Originally released in 1987, the first Predator movie raked in $12 million in its first weekend alone and we’re talking 1980’s money! That’s like 25 million in …Read More

Nothing quiet brings the terror like HP Lovecraft’s most famous monster creation, Cthulhu. An indescribable terror of the outer dimensions, Cthulhu wanders the edges of our sanity waiting for us to peek just a bit too far beyond the veil, to a place where the trees twitch against the ebony sky and the pale monsters …Read More

The world and mythology of Hellraiser is back. Although we have seen recent Hellraiser comics and graphic novels, this is the first publication to come direct from Clive Barker’s own company, Seraphim. The reason they’ve gone the in-house publishing route is censorship. Barker and his team’s experience with other publishers was a frustrating one. The …Read More

If you are a fan of Hellboy, BPRD, Sledgehammer 44 or really anything from the ever expanding Mike Mignola universe (charmingly known as Mignola-verse), then you have at least heard of the Black Flame. A mysterious, German speaking figure with a burned skull face and a surrounding black flame, he’s known for giving our monster …Read More

They have been called by many names: hobos, tramps, vagrants, and most recently, crust punks. Whatever you prefer, they can be seen all across the American landscape, riding the rails in hopes of adventure or to just simply disappear (and yes, hopping trains is still a thing.) But it’s not just their escapades of travel …Read More

Few movie franchises have the same sort of genre defying influence as Alien. Not only did it redefine both horror and sci-fi with its creeping, tense atmosphere and Giger-drawn aliens, but it thrust forward female led action movies, a sweeping extended universe, and has been a family favourite since it hit theatres in 1979. That’s …Read More

Vampires are like cockroaches; they’re sexy and they’re scared of the light. Or that there are a million of them and each one has a story to tell.  Stories of falling in love in the woods of the Northwest, stories about female sexuality, about the dangers of blood borne pathogens, running the mafia, destroying an …Read More

Being a professional chef is hard work. Whether it’s keeping up with current food trends or simply making back your expenses at the end of the night, it’s not a business for the weak, so when Chef Brianna decided to set up shop in Monster City, she didn’t actually expect to be full of monsters! …Read More

Have you ever thought to yourself: you know what the X-Files needs? More pantsuits. Well, for you mid-90’s fashion aficionados, you’re in luck! The newest addition to the X-Files mythos puts a gender-bending spin on the popular series by replacing Detective Mulder with Detective Mulder! That is, Samantha Mulder, Fox Mulder’s sister who famously got …Read More

October saw the release of the final issue of Dynamite’s Xena: Warrior Princess. Written by Genevieve Valentine, the 6-part miniseries has been a fun but inconsistent affair, veering in tone between high-camp and high-drama, and struggling to find its feet for the first half of the series. But in spite of its flaws, Issue #6 …Read More

Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend the launch of Satanic Mojo #4 in Central London. At Orbital Comics, creator Jason Atomic spoke about his lifelong fascination with the occult, proposing his ideas about Satan as a symbol of autonomy and apostasy, and that free love can be a powerful source of magic. As …Read More

At first glance, Evil Dead and Xena: Warrior Princess might not have much in common, but both having been created by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, the franchises share a lot of the same influences, as well as both utilising a signature tongue-in-cheek sense of humour. With Lucy Lawless having a featured role in the …Read More

It’s a good time to be alive, it seems, for fans of witches and witchcraft. With Dave Egger’s 2015 film The Witch, along with comics such as The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and even talks of remaking classics like Suspiria and Hocus Pocus, the current market is flooded with depictions of empowered, magical women.  Spell …Read More

With films such as Neon Demon and the imminent remake of Suspiria (please, god, no), there seems to be a current slew of horror titles focused on the creative arts, Hollywood, and the insidious nature of our current obsession with celebrity. Glitterbomb, a new horror story from Image Comics, focuses on the same motifs, using …Read More

When it comes to horror writers, I’ve had always had a fondness for M.R. James’ distinct brand of suspenseful, supernatural prose. His stories are always masterfully executed, relying on tension and atmosphere rather than jump scares and gore. The many adaptations of his works – particularly the BBC’s Ghost Stories for Christmas – are a …Read More

The last issue of Dynamite’s Xena: Warrior Princess ended with Gabrielle and Ares sneaking away to Rome, presumably on a suicide mission in order to save Xena from dying at the hands of Augustus Caesar. But if Xena’s mythological narratives taught us anything, it’s that trying to avoid a prophecy from coming true will almost …Read More

If you mix Stranger Things, Sleepaway Camp and the greatest hits of Cyndi Lauper, you’d probably end up with something pretty close to the new issue of Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy. The crossover – a collaboration between DC and Boom! Box – has been consistently effective since it began a few months ago, but Issue #3 is …Read More

Perhaps it’s because of my childhood obsession with Hammer Horror films, or the fact that my immoral grandmother used to encourage me to read Poe when I was in primary school, but I’ve always had a thing for a particular brand of the gothic – the type that includes ruined castles, thunderstorms, and buxom women …Read More

In Issue #4 of Dynamite’s latest run of Xena: Warrior Princess, Xena and Gabrielle launch a full-scale rescue mission to save the Harpies, a group of women taken hostage by Roman soldiers. Joined by Ares, the now mortal God of War, they race to the port of Ephesus in order to save their kidnapped friends, …Read More

Issue #2 of Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy, the new crossover title from Boom! Box and DC Comics, immediately follows on from the cliff-hanger at the end of the last issue, with Jen and Olive having been taken hostage by a spectral group of skull-headed figures. In their absence, the remaining characters band together to form a rescue …Read More

To the uninitiated, Satanic Mojo is a multi-platform art project that incorporates comics, club nights and live performances. Summoned from the mind of punk artist Jason Atomic, the project is created by a collective of writers and artists, all drawing on ideas of Satanism and the occult, as well as 1970s psychedelia. The name is …Read More

In Issue #2 of She Wolf, Gabrielle – convinced she’s been attacked by a werewolf – becomes less and less able to control her imminent transformation, seeing herself becoming increasingly lupine when she looks in the mirror. She meets Nikki, a self-proclaimed vampire, who begins to show her how to suppress her fantasises, taking her …Read More

Since its inception, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been one of my favourite horror comics in recent years. Taking characters that were light and fluffy and making them both dark and disturbing was an inspired choice, and the comic’s depiction of powerful women was refreshing in its simplicity. Issue #6, however, is a rare …Read More

Posted on: July 17th, 2016

Issue #3 of Dynamite’s new tie in of Xena: Warrior Princess takes place immediately after the previous issue, with Xena and Gabrielle going undercover to face the Romans in Croesus’ Palace. This is where the series really hits its stride, with the entire issue reading like a classic Xena episode, striking the perfect balance between …Read More

In a market still heavily dominated by male characters and creators, Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy #1 – the new crossover title from DC and Boom! Box – is something of a revelation, dispelling the tired misogyny and objectification that are still so central to comics today. The characters here are all bright and dynamic, even for readers …Read More

Tragic Tales of Horrere, the independent horror anthology from Little O and Madius Comics, was something of a surprise for me when it was released a few months ago. I often find anthology comics somewhat patchy and inconsistent, but writers Rob Jones and Michael Sambrook presented four interesting stories, each reflecting a different element of …Read More

“If there’s a beast in men, it meets its match in women too,” says the heroine in Neil Jordan’s film The Company of Wolves. Though werewolves have historically been used as a metaphor for male sexuality (the French phrase still used to describe the loss of a girl’s virginity is ‘elle avoit vû le loup,’ …Read More
