Caliban #1

"The idea that would eventually evolve into "Caliban" began when I heard there was going to be a prequel to "Alien", which is one of my all-time favourite films. What I like best about it is the sheer level of imagination on display; it gets you thinking about all kinds of possibilities. When I finally saw "Prometheus" I realised they’d gone in a completely different direction to what I expected, and given that I had all these ideas kicking about from my idle musing, I thought- why not?"

Technically, it's a Gabriel Rodriguez sale but the main selling point is the entire series of 'Locke & Key' for 99 cents an issue. The sale is available here. I've sang its praises here numerous times but it's still in my opinion of the best modern comics series around.

Here is the most recent issue, 'Small World', which I posted here way back in January.

"It was almost like a dry run for me. I had Frankenstein in mind and I wanted to do it. I had an idea what I wanted the drawings to look like; and 'The Muck Monster'—and a few other things I did for Warren—were the embryonic version of the penwork that finally showed up in Frankenstein." - Bernie Wrightson

Very sad to hear about the passing of Bernie Wrightson. In his memory, this was a story he wrote and illustrated for Eerie #68 that would serve as the groundswell for what would arguably be his magnum opus, the illustrated version of Frankenstein.

As stated in an earlier post, Joe Hill had written some scripts for a reboot of 'Tales from the Darkside'. The show never came to be but the planned episodes were later reworked into comic format for IDW. This was the last issue but functions as a stand-alone story.

For those who don't know, Berni Wrightson once did illustrations for the novel Frankenstein and it's widely considered to be his definitive work. In my opinion its the best visual depiction of the monster.

In 2012 he started what was going to be a 13-issue miniseries with Steve Niles that served as a 'sequel' to the original novel. The second issue was delayed by a few months and the third issue by two years. As of 2017 the series remains unfinished. Given that Wrightson is sadly no longer able to draw I imagine that it will never be completed (I suppose they can find another artist but Wrightson was clearly the main selling point.)

So without further ado here is a glimpse at what might have been with the first issue.

Here's an original story from Eerie #58 that Berni Wrightson wrote in addition to illustrating.

Here is Berni Wrightson's adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft's 'Cool Air' from Eerie #62.

Here's another story from Creepy to showcase Berni Wrightson's art in light of his retirement.

For those not familiar with the original story by Edgar Allan Poe, I'll preface this with a heavy warning for depictions of animal cruelty.

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.

Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning did a few 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' comics for Wildstorm (I posted one last year for Halloween). As a fan of the franchise, it's my opinion that they 'got' the series and Leatherface to the point that it genuinely makes me sad that they couldn't have been on board for any of the recent films.

'About a Boy' was a one-shot focusing on Leatherface as a teenager. I remember being disappointed how the 2005 prequel completely skipped over Leatherface's early years. Abnett and Lanning's comic is exactly what should have been in the film.

Warning for gore and violence.

Here's another Freddy Krueger story from Wildstorm's 'Nightmare on Elm Street' comics (published under "New Line's Tales of Horror #1").  In my opinion it absolutely nails Freddy as a  character.

Warning for the usual violence and gore.

"This is the DC
Crisis of horror. This is the movie they could never afford to make." - Jason Craig

"With remakes of Friday and now Nightmare, we are in many ways the stewards of the classic continuity and it's a responsibility we don't take lightly." - Jeff Katz

This is the follow-up to 'Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'. On one hand, I appreciate that this comes from a place of genuine love for the original films. On the other, it's a bit of a mess. The level of fanservice here is off the charts that even J.J. Abrams would probably go "Whoa, settle down." Unless you've seen every single film from both Freddy and Jason you're probably going to be lost at one point or another.

Warning for the usual stuff; gore, violence, etc.

"If there were a war on Christmas, I would be the general advancing on it. It’s over-commercialized. I hate seeing decorations on November 1 and I hate Christmas jingles. I had to listen to a lot of Christmas music while I was working on NOS4A2 and I wasn’t too happy about it. I’m sure if you were going down to Hell in an elevator, the music playing would be the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas album and it would speed up the farther you plunged." -- Joe Hill

I posted this in two parts last year, thought it might make a nice comic for Christmas.

This comic is a companion and prequel to Joe Hill's novel NOS4A2, although you don't need to read one to understand the other. Trigger warning for child abuse/rape.

Here's one more belated Halloween story, this one from EC comics. I personally think it's Graham Ingels' best work for the publisher in terms of detail and just the sheer horror it conveys. Also if you're a fan of these EC excerpts I recommend you check out Fantagraphics' 'EC Comics Library' collection at Comixology (they're also available in print form).

I meant to post this yesterday but here's a bonus Junji Ito story that I posted three years ago here. In my opinion it's one of the creepiest stories from him.

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.
