'Tangled Web' was a short-lived anthology series featuring Spider-Man. Or rather, people who were affected by him one way or another. This is one of the stronger ones in my opinion.

I posted this only a few months ago but in light of today's news with Berni Wrightson's health issues causing him to retire I figured I would share it again. 'Jenifer' is arguably one of Wrightson's most infamous horror works. It first appeared in Creepy #63. For those interested this was made into an episode of 'Masters of Horror' directed by Dario Argento. If I have the time and resources I may try to post further Wrightson comics in the future.

Warning for gore as well as a rape scene.

Here's a short story from Creepy #63. For those interested this was made into an episode of 'Masters of Horror' directed by Dario Argento.

Warning: There's some gory stuff here as well as what I think is an implied rape scene.

Because why should [personal profile] cyberghostface have a monopoly on posting tales of the weird, of the creepy, of the unexpected this time of month?

When I was a wee lad, I once took some banjo lessons from a nice Mr. Jones. It suitably traumatized me for the rest of the week, and probably a few days after that.

Fast-forward several years, when some urge I can no longer remember prompted me to go and read several more issues of Twisted Tales. To my relief as well as vague disappointment, I began to realize why no-one really talks about any TT stories besides "Banjo Lessons". Most of TT's oeuvre - to be brutally honest - is hackwork, relying on much the same formula as the horror cinema of the time: gore galore, nudity galore, and splashy twist endings galore. Logical plotting was not a priority, to the point where some of the stories' Wikipedia write-ups are scarier than the stories themselves.

To make things worse, Bruce Jones insisted on personally writing (almost) every story, and while he's rightfully hailed as the West's Junji Ito, even his creativity had limits. TT puttered to a fairly sad end after ten issues, with one particular story in #9 being a red-faced admission that the party was pretty much over.

But before TT folded, it managed at least one indisputable gem - a story that managed to be haunting and heartfelt all at once, without any need for blood or boobs or even speech bubbles. It's more of an illustrated short-story than a proper comic, which lends it unique pacing and atmosphere but also makes it a pain to trim without letting all the air out. I've done the best I could here, but I urge the lot of you to seek out the whole thing by any means necessary.

This is a particularly notorious comic but it's hard to explain why without spoiling it. It was first published in Vampirella #58. Warning for nudity and gore.

As always, if you have any requests for any horror comics -- be it EC, Warren, a manga, etc -- let me know and I'll try to see if I can post it.

One of the comments in yesterday's Shanna post mentioned the time she tried hooking up with Spider-man and he turned her down. It turns out I have that issue of Ka-zar the Savage, and the idea of seeing Peter being an emotionally mature adult about his relationships would be a nice change of pace.

One thing that stuck out about the Ka-zar series to me was that every issue featured a wraparound cover, had no ads (except for a few in house ads) and the inside cover pages featured photo comics of the Marvel staff.

Having dug up a copy of this forgotten little gem from Bruce Jones and the brilliant Brent Anderson, I found myself struck by a few...interesting similarities with a later work.
