When most readers think of Pre-Code Horror comics from the early 1950s, Entertaining Comics’ (better known as EC) trio of terror titles, Tales from the Crypt, The Vault of Horror and The Haunt of Fear, naturally spring to mind first.  That’s only fair as EC’s titles were arguably the best horror comics of the time…perhaps of all time.  There were, however, many other companies putting out excellent product.  One such publishing house was Harvey Comics.

Tim Seeley’s Hack/Slash Annual Returns in November Berkeley, CA – 28 September 2011 – It’s old school American horror versus comic book horror hunter in this year’s HACK/SLASH ANNUAL 2011! Two of horror comics’ biggest stars, Cassie Hack and Vlad, will soon come face to face with Victor Crowley of writer/director Adam Green’s cult favorite HATCHET series of films. GUARDING THE GLOBE writer Benito Cereno has teamed up with star-in-the-making Ariel Zucker-Brull for the 48 page HACK/SLASH ANNUAL 2011 — a momentous mash-up! “As a guy who spends a lot of time researching horror movies, believe me when I say the world needed Hatchet,” said Seeley. “So, from the moment I saw the movie, I was looking for a way to have Cas and Vlad meet Victor.” In the Louisiana Bayou, the murderous ghost of Victor Crowley is maiming tourists in creatively horrible ways. But in his blind murderous rampage, he may have created something worse than himself! Now, Cassie and Vlad are back in New Orleans, and it won’t be long before baseball bat meets hatchet and deformed mutant meets deformed mutant! Continue reading

Posted in Box Office, Film on 09/30/2011 by sharonwong

From frighteningly funny to just plain frightening (and we’re not just talking about the movie), this week’s film premieres could not be more different on the horror plane.  Only one can be the weekend’s winner and it is very clear who it will be, even with its indie status.

DC Comics Recap Week 3…Late But Never Better

Reviews by Shaun Daniels and Edited by Sharon Wong

Week Three happened and it happened to be our least favorite week of the DC reboot (there is still one more week to go).  This is not an indication of a lack of quality as the week had a few strong books too.  It just lacked any real surprise hits and a couple of the books were definitely mixed for us.  However, it did lack any books that missed the mark on storytelling.  Without further ado, here are the hits and those on the fence.
