"The majority of how we address faith in the story is through Reverend Anderson (played by Philip Glenister), because he is a Baptist preacher. Patrick (Fugit)’s character Kyle is secular, so he doesn’t really believe in the stuff that he’s experiencing. Which I think is a fun dynamic and a good place to have that character in. As the series progresses, Anderson will see Kyle’s side of things, and sometimes Kyle will see Anderson’s side of things. That’s a good interplay between them. But also I think we try not to take a stance. There is no “this is the way religion is” or “this is the way you should believe.” We try to keep things open to interpretation as much as possible. We don’t ever want to come off like this show is preaching or evangelizing in any way." - Robert Kirkman

"Those of you who know me only from A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE may be wondering, what the hell is MEATHOUSE MAN?? The short answer is, 'one of my old SF short stories'. (Actually, a novelette).

The long answer is, 'the darkest, bleakest, sickest, most twisted thing I ever wrote.'"
- George R.R. Martin

NSFW for sex and nudity as well as some gore.

This is from DC's "House of Mystery" #1. It's pretty effective in my opinion.

A heavy warning for gore and general grotesqueries.

"The injury to the eye motif is an outstanding example of the brutal attitude cultivated in comic books — the threat or actual infliction of injury to the eyes of a victim, male or female. This detail, occurring in uncounted instances, shows perhaps the true color of crime comics better than anything else. It has no counterpart in any other literature of the world, for children or for adults."

--Fredric Wertham, Seduction of the Innocent, 111

"[Mother Hubbard] could also count on her creaking bone and curling hair to alert her to imminent wrong-doing, although for most folks such bothersome symptoms just mean it's going to rain."
--Jon Morris, The League of Regrettable Superheroes, 89

A superhero in the form of a witch who looks like a stereotypical fairy-tale crone, but who uses her powers for good? And starts off by fighting Nazis? Why not; it was the Golden Age.

I guess posting this has become somewhat of a tradition for me but it's mainly because there's very few EC Christmas stories.

Hi folks!

I am sad to report that Shigeru Mizuki (1922-2015) has passed away from a heart attack. While he did many things in his lifetime, he is most famous for the manga Hakaba Kitarou ("Graveyard Kitarou") which was renamed Gegege no Kitarou for the TV series.

Drawn and Quarterly, as it happens, is coming out with an English edition called Shigeru Mizuki's Kitaro next year.



So I thought I would show a few preview pages from the first volume. Safe for work, but this is a horror comic.

Meet Kitarou's parents. )

A while back, I reviewed a volume of Mizuki's autobiography, covering his war experiences (he lost an arm) and post-World War Two difficulties. http://www.skjam.com/2015/06/21/manga-review-showa-1944-1953-a-history-of-japan/

He will be missed.

"For many, the ‘80s along with the ‘70s was a golden era for horror films. A lot of those films from then are deeply ingrained in pop culture. We all know the story of The Exorcist, A Nightmare On Elm Street and Friday The 13th and so on. They have almost become our generation’s fairytales. We draw a lot on that mythology in Survivors’ Club, but we take it in unexpected directions." - Dale Halvorsen

"Brainy, ambitious and delightfully scary, Survivors' Club is a throwback to books like The Sandman and Hellblazer that made Vertigo a legend" - Joe Kelly, Locke & Key (quote on the front cover of the issue)

Writers: Lauren Beukes and Dale Halvorsen
