ComiXology Announces Four New Horror Comic Series This October

by Nick Banks

ComiXology (Amazon’s digital comic service) announced four new titles today in honor of every horror fan’s favorite holiday: Halloween!  The three new creator-owned comiXology Originals include: two new graphic novels, Dracula: Son of the Dragon (written by Mark Sable with art by Salgood Sam), Tremor Dose (by Michael Conrad with art by Noah Bailey), and the five issue limited series Afterlift #1 (written by Chip Zdarsky with art by Jason Loo), along with Archie Comics very own Josie and the Pussycats in Space #1 (written by Alex de Campi with art by Devaki Neogi).

Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content, was excited to unveil the new titles, saying that “October is more than just a time for pumpkin spice everything, it’s a time for reading great horror comics.  October’s debuts are wickedly entertaining and more than a little frightening. There’s the terrifying origin story of the world’s most famous vampire in Dracula: Son of the Dragon, the unexpected locked-door sci-fi mystery of Josie and the Pussycats in Space,a the wildly weird and disturbing psychological thriller about dreams and reality in Tremor Dose.  And, of course, the shocking urban supernatural adventure announced at SDCC about a ride-share to a very final destination in Afterlift.”

Dracula: Son of the Dragon and Josie and the Pussycats in Space will be released on Wednesday, October 23, with Tremor Dose and Afterlift debuting on Wednesday, October 30.

Chip Zdarsky’s highly anticipated new series Afterlift was originally announced at SDCC 2019.  Zdarsky (an Eisner Award and Joe Shuster Award winner) and artist  Loo, will explore the life of Janice Chen who “… quits her day job in finance and signs up to be a driver on a ride-sharing app. But what was at first a mundane but enjoyable way to pass the time takes a terrible turn when a mysterious passenger updates his ride with a very final destination: the afterlife!”

Each new comiXology Originals title will be available to read at no additional cost for Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and comiXology Unlimited members and will also be available for purchase on Kindle and comiXology.
