In 2006 Wildstorm gained the rights to publish comics off of the various New Line Horror characters (Freddy, Jason and Leatherface). Previously they were published by Avatar and as you can expect they were little more than gore porn. Wildstorm's output was a mixed bag but they published some genuinely good stories (one of them was the comic where Jason befriends a deformed boy which you can see in the archives).

In my opinion the best comic published from them was the initial series from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning with Wesley Craig on art. It's one of the better horror comics I've read and it makes me genuinely sad that Abnett and Lanning never worked on any of the recent films because this would have been ten times better than the 'prequel' or the 3D movie that just came out.

As a content warning there's an included rape scene in addition to the usual gore and violence.

'He recruits a band of heroes, we’re calling the Gods of War, who are like him in that they’re ancient heroes who are still operating today. They’re the only ones available because A) everyone else is caught up in “Civil War II” and B) they, like him, understand the old ways of thinking. They understand that a man’s fate is set and a hero’s responsibility is to overcome that. They understand that traditional mythological way of looking at a challenge or a test.' - Dan Abnett

"It’s sort of a joke, but in some respects when me and my editor Katie Kubert talked about this it’s almost like it’s an anti-crossover..." - Dan Abnett

"Black Manta is this wonderful mirror, dark mirror of Aquaman. And his sole purpose is to destroy Aquaman.

And I want to make Manta not just one of his great villains. Manta previously was a guy who cropped up for six or seven issues every now and then as one of his arch foes. But this is much more.

Aquaman is the key character in the comic book, but Mera and Black Manta are the other absolute co-stars. If it was a TV show, their faces would be in the credits too, because this is so much about those characters.

"Aquaman is one of the sort of big six of DC. He's not a Batman or Superman, but he's absolutely one of the first division heroes. And I've always liked him for that reason. And I like him for the same reason, I think, that I like a lot of cosmic characters, because he's not just a guy who puts on a costume — he's a guy from another world. He's a guy from Atlantis.

He's not wearing a superhero costume. He's wearing royal chain mail.

And he's not just a hero who saves people and does good deeds. He's got this responsibility. He rules Atlantis. He rules a whole nation. He controls the sea, which is two-thirds of the planet. He's the most global hero

His style helped tell the tale with detail and fragility.

That clashed with the simple and solid depictions that'd come before in IDW's universe.

The clash was made obvious at the end of issue #3, when the protagonists met an antagonist.

Galvatron, seeking to raise dormant Cybertronians to fight the thing called D-Void, came to Dykayra.

There, he met a face he wasn't expecting.

" I-it cannot be! "

" Oh, but it is, Galvatron.. "

His familiar foe loomed. )

"[Secret Wars] is really a beautifully thought out Marvel Universe event. Of course, from my point of view, and I'm sure there are other books that will share this problem, I'm dealing with the Guardians of the Galaxy -- and there is no galaxy. There's no stars or other worlds. There are none of the reference points that make the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Guardians of the Galaxy." - Dan Abnett
