The argument in Beast Wagon, or so it seems to me, is that mankind has lost its connection to nature. We are no longer the hunters or explorers we once were, and the only relationship we have to wild animals is when we see them in zoos or on TV. But somewhere in our collective …Read More

Afterlife with Archie, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s gothic take on Archie Comics, was one of the highlights of the year for me when it debuted in 2013. By combining the classic Archie style with the darker elements of horror, Aguirre-Sacasa created something that felt both fresh and exciting, while Francesco Francavilla’s Dario Argento-esque art lent the book …Read More

Maybe it’s because of my childhood obsessions with Tales from the Crypt and Are You Afraid of the Dark, but I’ve always had a special place in my heart for horror anthologies. The short story-like format, often ending on a cliff-hanger, has always been a successful one, particularly as it leaves the reader wanting more. …Read More

If I’m being honest, I should probably preface this review by saying that I’ve never been a huge fan of Grant Morrison. I’ve liked some of his work, especially Arkham Asylum and his run on JLA for DC, and while I appreciate his attempts to make comics intelligent and literary, for the most part, his …Read More

At its best, horror has always been most effective when reflecting a cultural fear of a particular time period, such as vampires and werewolves as metaphors of aggressive male sexuality. It should come as no surprise then that our reliance on technology conjures up its own inherent anxieties – most notably seen in films like …Read More

The trope of the zombie apocalypse has always enabled writers to explore a wide range of human fears, from racism, consumerism and, most importantly, the anxieties attached to our own mortality. But with Surface Tension – the new graphic novel from Titan Comics – creator Jay Gunn explores something completely different, examining the adverse effects …Read More

House of Penance, the new six part horror series from Dark Horse, is based on the true story of Sarah Winchester, the widow of a gun magnate who lived in nineteenth century California. The house she builds in issue one – filled with stairwells and corridors that lead nowhere – is a real place, said …Read More

I’ve always found penultimate issues to be somewhat problematic. Often they feel like an interval, stopping the action for no other reason than to build up to a finale. But issue five of Limbo does it the right way, giving us long-awaited answers, and making sense of the seemingly random world that Watters and Wijingaard …Read More

The King in Yellow, a series of interconnecting short stories about a play that drives people mad, was first published in 1895 by American author Robert W. Chambers. Despite being featured in the first season of HBO’s True Detective, the book has fallen into a state of relative obscurity, leaving Chambers overshadowed by other writers …Read More

The first volume of this graphic novel will turn the majority of the lore that you know about witches on its head. Or make that wytches – as they are referred to here.

Web comic – First few chapters are free, but subsequent chapters for sale. The story starts as many others do; our protagonist is offered the job he’s been dying to snag on a remote island. Obviously he hasn’t seen Wicker Man otherwise he’d probably have realised that no city dweller ever does too well in …Read More

Beast Wagon, the deliciously twisted brainchild of Owen Johnson and John Pearson, is a comic whose reputation precedes it. The book achieved its Kickstarter goal within 24 hours, and was consequently nominated for a British Comic Award last November. With the release of the third issue this month, Beast Wagon mutates into a much darker …Read More

When I first read about Cry Havoc, a new series about lesbian werewolves in Afghanistan, I have to admit I was a little sceptical. Werewolf stories have been done to death over the last few years, and I was expecting to read a series that felt both exploitive and misogynistic. Fortunately, the first issue of …Read More

Limbo, a six part genre-bending series from Image Comics, is the story of Clay, an amnesiac private investigator working in the lurid Dedande City.
