Gore Shriek - Horror Comic Revival (Kickstarter)

Holy Crap. I'm a HUGE fan of horror comics and graphic novels (the stuff from E.C. Comics especially, hold a very warm place in my heart); so the news that the short-lived 80's series "Gore Shriek" was going to get a third lease on life (it was revived once in the 90's), nearly made me jump out of my chair with childlike joy. Check out the Kickstarter (clicking on the post title), which is well on its way to clearing the goal. Thank you FantaCo and Rough House!

NOVO Vol.1 Extended - Alterna Comics (PREVIEW)

A change of pace from the last few Alterna comics we've previewed, this one not really dealing in the horror genre, but instead leaning towards a sci-fi drama. If the synopsis is any indication, there's potential for a very emotional story here. Check out a sample at the bottom of this post.

Now trying to discover a history he will never be a part of, can the mystery of his past give him the clues to his future?

Alan Moore's Neonomicon - Lovecraft Horror in Comic Form, for Adults

Fans of H.P. Lovecraft's work, owe it to themselves to check out this mini series from Alan Moore, adding so much more to the Cthulu mythos. 

Description from the Avatar Press website: 

 

Prepare for Providence with the first chapter of the epic,

NEONOMICON!  Comic book legend Alan Moore (WATCHMEN) and brilliant artist Jacen Burrows deliver a chilling tale of Lovecraftian horror! Brears and Lamper, two young and cocky FBI agents, investigate a fresh series of ritual murders somehow tied to the final undercover assignment of Aldo Sax –the once golden boy of the Bureau, now a convicted killer and inmate of a maximum security prison. From their interrogation of Sax (where he spoke exclusively in inhuman tongues) to a related drug raid on a seedy rock club rife with arcane symbols and otherworldly lyrics, they suspect that they are on the trail of something awful… but nothing can prepare them for the creeping insanity and unspeakable terrors they will face in the small harbor town of Innsmouth. NEONOMICON collects Alan Moore’s comic book series for the first time in its entirety – including his original graphic novel, THE COURTYARD, which chronicled Aldo Sax’s tragic encounter with the (somewhat) mortal agents of the Old Ones! Available in softcover and hardcover formats, with illustrated covers by Jacen Burrows (CROSSED).
