Horror Week - The Gatesville Company

Photobucket

The Gatesville Company was a horror anthology comic, published a few years back. It lasted two issues (as far as I know).

The story opens with the tale of The Bronze Bull, after which one Simone Weaver (the red-haired women) is murdered (unintentionally) in her apartment by burglars. She awakens in the river where Mr. Cross (with coat and shades) is waiting for her. Ms. Brand, who is also waiting there, explains that she's died, and she's here to prepared for her journey into heaven or hell.

Simone tells her story:

I found this issue really satisfyingly creepy. I'm not sure why, it's not too spooky of a tale, but her warm, calm smile as she's about to cut into people, it just freaks me out. Kinda sad that this series never lasted, I enjoyed the art and writing in this issue quite a lot.


Completely unrelated request! Anyone have scans of an old Superman Annual, the one that takes place in the far future where there's a team where each individual has one of Superman's powers? It might have been the Elseworlds Annuals, or maybe Legends of the Dead Earth.

BONUS: Here's some (nicely wallpaper-sized) loading screen art from the canceled Flash video game. There's also some nifty storyboards on the same site.
