Our colleagues in chaos over at Dark Horse Comics were kind enough to give us an exclusive first look at two horrifically awesome covers from their upcoming Creepy comics! You can check them both out here below.
First up we’ve got Creepy Quarterly #8. This cover, which depicts one very unlucky individual’s encounter with a stake and some rope, was created by Richard Corben, whose work you’ll recognize from Creepy, Eerie, Hellboy, Jonah Hex, and most recently Men of War. The 48-page issue is set to hit the stands on April 4th, and features stories and art by Jeff Parker, Doug Moench, Rick Geary, Colleen Coover, Kelley Jones, and Richard Corben, as well as a throwback story from Bruce Jones and Bernie Wrightson!
It’s that time of year again, boys and girls! The temperature has dropped, the leaves have turned from green to varying shades of orange and red; children dress in the guise of their favorite characters, and the flickering of candles show the yellow grins of the jack-o-lanterns adorning the porches of your neighborhood. It’s Halloween, folks, and while there’s plenty of people out there that like cute, plastic pumpkins on their doors, we here at Geeks of Doom like our Halloweens a little more horrifying. So, it’s with this, Halloweekend, that I will be bringing to you a series of horror-themed features that showcase the wicked side of geek entertainment.
In the first installment of what I like to call Halloweekend of Doom, I’m going to explore 13 comic books that should get you in the mood for the greatest time of year. The list is in no particular order, and this isn’t intended to be the be all end all of horror comics, but these comics are great to read during Halloween. I’ll cover some that can be considered family friendly, but the majority of these are strictly dark and for mature audiences.
