This is the second half of my two-part post for my friend Brian Lillie’s blog. Enjoy!
Each year, my friend Brian Lillie publishes commentary on horror in pop culture and asks a few friends to contribute posts. This is the first of a two-parter that I wrote for his blog, 31 Days Hath October.
Our next horror webcomic is the new-ish roomZER0, created by Nashville’s mancameron (Cameron Lucente).
Katherine Lang‘s Soul to Call is a classic postapocalyptic tale: after two-thirds of the earth’s population is destroyed due to an event known simply as The Fall, otherworldly abominations begin to roam and feed upon the survivors.
Humorous horror comics can be hard to pull off; all too often, the ‘humor’ relies on tired puns or gory slapstick. Lucy Lyall’s Spare Keys for Strange Doors serves its funny frights up right.
Sam Alden‘s Haunter doesn’t have surprises, exactly — what it does have is lush art, fine storytelling, and a good dose of the creeping horrors.
