  1. I've contributed! I'll spread the word to my contributors on there - I've got a week going on my campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1692478274/slashermania-epic-retro-eighties-horror-graphic-no
  2. If you expect to have the monies at some point before 13th September, you can pledge. No money is taken until after the finish date. If anyone from here contributes, get in touch!
  3. Check it out HERE This is my own epic slasher graphic novel. Here's what it's about: FREAKTOWN COMICS PRESENTS SLASHERMANIA 1983. Troubled teens from New York and Los Angeles are taken to a summer camp facility to be trained as counsellors and mix safely with other people their own age. Little do they know they are being watched by an audience hungry for sex & violence. They are the designated victims for a bizarre contest of murder and mayhem – WELCOME TO SLASHERMANIA! Masked maniacs from across the USA, Canada, Italy & the UK compete in various categories: Best Male Solo Death! Best Female Solo Death! Coitus Interruptus! Sin Punishment! Most Creative Kill! Biggest Multiple Death! The coveted Slasher of the Year award! “And the slashie goes to...” Written by Russell Hillman. Pencils by Ron Joseph and CJ Camba. Inks by Ron Joseph, Jake Isenberg and CJ Camba. Colours by Harry Saxon. Letters by Sergio Calvet. Slashermania is an original graphic novel in the tradition of films such as Scream, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, The Final Girls and Cabin in the Woods. Functioning both as a tribute to, and an examination of, the eighties slasher movie phenomenon, it’s mostly played straight but with an undercurrent of post-modern self-awareness and some appropriately inappropriate laughs along the way - carefully designed not to undercut the scares. It should appeal to readers of titles such as Tim Seeley’s Hack/Slash, Williamson/Henderson’s Nailbiter and Alex de Campi’s Grindhouse miniseries. The Kickstarter campaign runs from 13th August – 13th September. Neither of them are Fridays, but you work with what the calendar gives you. Here's the trailer: Download a preview comic here. Listen to the soundtrack playlist on YouTube:
  4. Is anyone watching this? I think they're capturing the late 80s feel reasonably well. The hair's not always right, but there's enough touches to make it work. Freeform have put the whole first episode up on YouTube:
  5. Nike has worked with slashers in the past...
  6. So, the CW have a new series coming soon based on Archie. It's called Riverdale. Here's the promo image: Is it just me, or does this look more suitable for a Crystal Lake series?
  7. So, who else on here is into horror-filled comic books? My current favourite is Nailbiter from Image Comics, written by Joshua Williamson with art by Mike Henderson. Here's the original blurb: There are four trade paperback collections out so far, and it's a decent mixture of gore and disquiet. They also did a one-shot crossover with another favourite, Hack/Slash. Over the years, Cassie and Vlad hunted and killed many slashers, even crossing paths with Victor Crowley and Chucky. There's a lot of Hack/Slash to get through, either start with the first book, First Cut, or Cassie's origin, My First Maniac. I would be an idiot not mentioning my own stuff here, so here's the trailer art for The Dark of the Forest: (Image spoilered due to size) It's a seventies-set man-vs-nature/proto-slasher hybrid, filled with all the blood, gore, sex and foul language we love. My other horror comic is Deadly Burlesque: (Image spoilered due to size) This one's more a tribute to the early eighties slashers like Maniac and He Knows You're Alone. I have another project that's been hit quite heavily by delays, but should finally be out by the end of the year, Slashermania. I think a few people here will appreciate it. I'll let the trailer image speak for itself here, though it's very big. Huge. (Not a warning I'm used to giving...) (Image spoilered due to enormousness) So, that's a couple of recommendations and some blatant self-promotion. What about you? What horror comics are you reading, or have you read?
  8. Mark's wheelchair (or one very similar) shows up in the tunnels in the 2009 film.
  9. Well, given that I've just bought the game (Steam) and some DLC add-ons, I kinda hope so. Am I alone in this, or has this tempted any other non-gamers to change the habit of a lifetime and buy a video game? I don't know what the hell I'm doing, but I think I'm going to enjoy doing it.
