Something different for this one. Comixology is having an EC sale until 11 tonight (EST) for some Fantagraphic collections of various EC comics in black and white to better show off the artist's work. You can access the page here.

Here's a sampling of a story from Graham Ingels, originally published in Haunt of Fear #17.

Death Masque 00

I can thoroughly recommend Star Wars Omnibus - Wild Space Volume 1, nearly 450 pages of odd collections of Star Wars stories, from cereal boxes, toybox comics, and many of them being back-up or filler strips in the UK Star Wars Weekly Comic (Which I have fond memories of to this day).

Because of the era, this means that some of them are by the likes of Alan Moore, and Alan Davis, then bright young things at Marvel UK. Alas some of them are only 5 pages long, and are in their own way, little gems of storytelling, but alas, hacking up a 5 page story to fit the 1/3 rule is often deeply counterproductive, so I'd rather not try (So go buy the book!)

This is a 15 page story written by Steve Moore and John Stokes on art though, from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back #149

For my final horror-themed post of the month, here's a Basil Wolverton creeper from Gillmor's Weird Mysteries #5 (June 1953). Public domain; thanks once again to ComicBookPlus.com for the scans.

With Halloween fast approaching, I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon with a couple horrific comics of my own. But since another poster here seems to have the market cornered on Junji Ito material, I thought I'd go with a different approach: horror in series that really, really shouldn't have it.

Enter Meitantei Conan (lit. Great Detective Conan, officially known as Case Closed in English-speaking nations), a manga/anime franchise that, at this point, is probably Japan's equivalent to Scooby-Doo. A long-running series with hundreds of installments, a ridiculously iconic mascot that can be plastered across any number of lunchboxes, backpacks, you name it, and whose main focus is on solving paper-thin (yet often highly complicated) mysteries with an over-the-top cast whose personalities are largely set in stone. A great number of its haters (and for that matter, a great number of its fans) complain that it's long outlived its golden years and ought to be put out of its misery, but still it chugs on... and on... and on...



(Aww, come on. How horrific can a series with this little guy as the main character be?)

But this being Japan, there are a few key differences. Like the fact that instead of unmasking goofy monsters in rubber suits, our protagonists usually go up against murderers. Murderers who usually succeed on their first try.

The real horror actually starts in the later volumes, but let's get acquainted with the cast and the direction of the series first. And in actuality, this pilot chapter is pretty damn horrific on its own (if not too rich in common sense...).

"I don’t think anyone can trust Namor completely. Not because of anything necessarily utterly complicitous, but he is possibly the most mercurial hero character in the Marvel Universe." -- James Robinson

"The five years later in all of these stories are places where I think maybe the characters could go at some point. They certainly don't have to go that way. And who knows who will be writing them in five years? But it was something that seemed plausible to me, based on my run, that some of these things could happen." -- Charles Soule
