Hey all!

I've been reading Afterlife with Archie, which is great but on years-long hiatus.

The other Archie horrors, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Vampironica, and Jughead the Hunger are pretty awesome too, actually.

What horror comics do you like? Are there standouts in print, on the Web, or here on the Duck that you know of?

Here's a horror title I just found on DD:

There's also THIS little babe too…
That's the second version. The original Xtin was fricken HEAVY. It was as extreme a vision of horror as I've ever seen. It really went beyond normal horror into the surreal, and that's not hyperbole. It had a huge focus on body horror: limbs being dismembered, people being skinned alive, blood drained from their bodied, impalings… It sickened me.
It was amazingly well drawn, all in black and white too!

Then there's Death porn by El Cid, I'd definitely say that was horror.

Hmm, well there was a few horror stories in lite bites. Also blood and water slides slightly into horror, but I haven't really gotten to the nasty stuff yet.

Underbelly was largely a horror action comic, I may even finish that one day.

Most of the comics I have done have been pretty horrible 😉.

Interstellar Blood Beasts was my truest foray into the genre. Even got a DD award nomination for horror. Some of the Belle's Best bits will be more classically scary horror as opposed to exploitation and gore. Got a pile of cemetary and ghost props. There's always great scale scary ghost hangings and spider and rat miniatures out at Halloween. I have scripts and story seeds. We need more real horror with long shadows and creaky old houses around here.

GOOB was supposed to be a lot darker but in the tradition of so many low budget producers, I forgot to put in the effects! 😂

There are some horror bits in Sword of Kings like the ghouls and skull knights. In fact there's supposed to be a skull knights stand alone that'll have all the fantasy horror features.

This one is great!

It's a traditional slasher at a camp, but also a comedy. It's fantastic!

Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson's “Beasts of Burden” (Darkhorse Comics)is one of the better horror comics out in print right now, in my opinion! And every year I get real ticked that some kid on tumblr scanned an entire story arc and didn't even credit the authors, so there's always a thousand comments going “OO scary I don't know what this is from!” as it gets passed around. Plus there's no consideration to the spoilers.
It's fantastic, it looks like it is going to be a cute animal adventure but then it gets genuinely unsettling.

Webcomic wise, DD's own Crater's Edge is a visual treat to look at, the artist puts so much time and detail to hand-inked and colored pages, and the monster designs are a delight! All kinds of beasties crawling and screeching all over the pages!

I'm also still very fond of DeadLeon, a comic that pays homage to zombie stories from classic to contemporary. And it's got one of my favorite monster types in it, the Alp. :D

Bad me, here comes some non DD plugs!

Behind You- awesome art and animated GIFs in creepy little vignettes, a good one to read alone in the dark!

Daniel- Continues to be the best vampire comic I have read, hands down! The suspense is still fantastic, and the villain protagonist uniquely awful and charming all at once.

Goblin Stone
- Has a nice creepy atmosphere and lots of fantasy creatures in a modern setting, and a character who is 100% done with all this magical BS!

Doe of Deadwood- one of my favorites right now, the author is a master of leaving the reader on the edge with each update. Heavy on character drama, just hows I likes it!
