Our Thoughts: Where do I begin?  There’s so much going on in this issue. I never like to give out spoilers, especially when I truly believe horror comic fans should pick up the comic I’m wiriting about.  Needless to say there are many twists

21st Century Serial Killer Review

By:  Sean McLaughlin

 

 

               First off, I’d like to thank Chemical Burn Entertainment for ending my movie-reviewing year off on the right note.  While I’m known to have a love/hate relationship with that company, their 2013 release 21st Century Serial Killer has restored my faith in their work.  Too often nowadays, independent horror cinema feels the need to turn the volume button up way too far, or not nearly far enough.  There is something to be said for staying true to your cinematic design and not purposely straying into the bizarre or obscure.  Director Henry Weintraub creates a surreal and familiar world where serial killers and mass murderers are seen more as luminaries than criminals, and uses the popular device of satire to lampoon the growing status of tabloid celebrities.

The 2013 Horror Comic Year-End Review

by: Stephanie Shamblin Gray

 

As the end of 2013 approaches, it is a time to reflect on our lives and goals, but it is especially a time to reflect on all the horror news and entertainment of the year. Here is our year-end summary of some of the big stories that everyone in the horror community was talking about this year.

 

The End of Locke & Key

 

All good things come to an end whether we like it or not. Such is the case with the fantastic comic series Locke & Key. Beginning in February 2008 and finishing up in the last month of 2013, the series has continued to captivate its fans and bring to life the Locke family and the story of Keyhouse. An instant hit (the first book sold out the first day), comic shops everywhere quickly learned that they needed to order adequate stock of this amazing book and that Joe Hill was a horror-comic force to be reckoned with. I still remember driving 40 miles to buy the only copy of Welcome to Lovecraft #1 and seeing issues of it with $75 price tags a week later at a convention. Alas, Alpha #2, the final book in the series, has wrapped up the series in a tight little bow and given fans a fitting end to an already legendary series.
