Review: London Horror Comic #7

by Stephanie Shamblin Gray

Title: London Horror Comic #7

Writer: John-Paul Kamath.

Artist: Drew Moss and Dean Kotz

Publisher: Self-Published

Release Date: October 31, 2016

Synopsis: Issue 7 of London Horror Comic features two complete stories that examine the effects of loneliness and isolation on two fragile souls and the horrors that it drives them to.

Our Thoughts: London Horror Comic has become a bit of an institution in the horror comic anthology realm. Issue 7 brings on the 10th year of the franchise and if that doesn’t seem like a lot of comics remember that this is a self-published comic and that is not an easy path. The level of effort to keep this up is extraordinary and can only be a labor of love. This is a consistently fun series that is easy to recommend to anyone able to track down a copy.

This issue is no different with two solids stories that both focus on longing and romance through the filter of horror. Or is it the other way around? It may depend on your perception but both of these stories are for adults only! Both are very sexy with some pretty explicit panels. You can grab a copy for Halloween and pull it back out for Valentine’s Day.

Kamath has only continued to improve as a creator over the years. Even though these are effectively two one-shots, they play well together and feel nicely developed. The art in the stories continues to improve as well. This is a good size book at 56 pages which allows for a bit more meat in each of the tales; something that anthologies may struggle with occasionally.

London Horror Comic has won our Horror Comic Award for Best Anthology twice in the past, and this issue reminds us why it is a repeat winner.

Score: 8/10
