What’s up, spooks? Time for some scary comics for the spookiest month of the year. First up is Locke & Key by Joe Hill who for some reason reminds us all of Stephen King. Hmm, wonder why that is.
Anyways, it’s a book about the scariest thing in existence: KEYS. We read the 1st volume: Welcome to Lovecraft.
And we’re so, so close to the end of All Star Superman with issue #11.
Next Time: Jughead: The Hunger, Vol. 1
Animal Man has never exactly been one of DC’s biggest heroes, but he got a reboot in 2011 for the New 52 written by Jeff Lemire with some gruesome, horrific art by Travel Foreman.
We read the first volume which saw him re-discover his origin, find out that his daughter can turn human arms into chicken arms, and start making his way toward the Swamp Thing.
And then in All Star Superman #5, Clark Kent interview Lex Luthor in prison!
Next Time: Wolverine: Weapon X (1991) from Marvel Comics Presents #72-84
Dogs and cats! Cats and dogs! Ghosts and zombies and witches and frogs!
Instead of our typical superhero fare, today we stray away from the pack (get it?) and read the first volume of Beasts of Burden, a collection of eight short stories about pets encountering the supernatural.
Evan Dorkin’s scary and sentimental writing combined with Jill Thompson’s beautiful artwork makes this a series that’s not to be missed!
