In collaboration with Disposable Heroes Comics we’ve come up with the ten horror comics, past and present, that you need to read if you love ze horror!! Here’s the list below of the most mind fucking horror currently available on the racks!


Crawl To Me (IDW)



Written by Wire Hangers creator/hard-rock musician, Alan Robert – Crawl to Me centers on Ryan as he struggles to protect his family from what appears to be an evil entity living within their basement’s crawl space. It is only after a series of violent events occur that Ryan realizes he must set aside all he believes to be true in order to face his shocking and inevitable reality.

This series is a nasty little gore splashed head-fuck that will leave you twisted long after the final page.





Horror Maestro Scott Snyder folds back time to 1916:

A man haunts the roads; a man with sharp teeth and a hunger for flesh. When 12 year-old Jack Garron runs away from home, he’ll see how quickly the American Dream becomes a nightmare. 

This is a claustrophobic, vitriolic and historied horror with some of the most flesh creeping scenes in comics. Cannibal killers have never been scarier!





From the warped mind of Garth Ennis Three military survivors of a helicopter crash discover something even more lethal than the Taliban-controlled landscape they are trapped in. The Stitched, undead killers lead by a very human hand stalk Afghanistan’s highlands and the marines who’ve crossed their path.

This is old school B-Movie horror with a kick-ass military flavor and some crucially violent deaths to make sure you never get too comfortable.


FATALE (Image)



Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips reteam for this pulp genre twister; A reporter in 2012 stumbles on a secret that leads him down the darkest path imaginable… to a seductive woman who’s been on the run since 1935, a mobster who may be an immortal demon monster, and the stories of all the doomed men who’ve been caught in their decades-long struggle.

Fatale feels like a noir but has all the sensibilities of a cult horror. Sex, Lies, Death Cults and Evil Demonic entities fill it’s pages and make it’s compulsive reading for fans of either genre.


The Strange Talent Of Luthor Strode (Image)



Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore’s massive cult hit, Luther Strode is just your average nerd until he sends away for a bodybuilding course from an old comic book, one that works a whole lot better than he ever imagined. His newfound strength and strange talents make school a lot easier, but they?but they’ve also caused some very, very bad people to take a very, very keen interest in him.

This is a teenage murder fest in the mold of a superhero origin, but with overt horror sensibilities. There’s more murder and violent death in one issue of TSTOLS than some entire horror runs. If Jason Voorhees was a superhero, he’d be Luthor Strode.
