Every October, on top of the insane amount of horror movies I watch, I take the time to re-read my favorite Lovecraft stories. There’s no better way to welcome the swirling sounds of Fall than to curl up with “The Rats in the Walls” or “The Dunwich Horror”.

Uncle Creepy has done it again! That sounded less dirty in my head, but nonetheless, he has. The 7th issue of Creepy has just dropped, with their usual brilliant hybrid of a homage to vintage scares, paired with a few laughs. This masterfully illustrated black-and-white anthology gives a subtle tip of the hat to classic horror comics, and provides a dripping sarcasm at which one can’t help but chuckle.

I’m so f*cking sick of hearing “horror is dead”. Do people honestly believe this? I know not everyone is quite so querulous, but to those people who believe that horror is a dying breed, you are either completely ignorant, or you have some impossibly high standards set for creators, and you should probably just write something yourself. Do you even pay attention to the books/movies that are being released? Every week I am overwhelmed by the incredible amount of horror stories out there, and to choose only one for my Pick of the Week becomes more and more difficult. I’m not saying that every horror title written is worth a read that would be a lie. Some are unintelligible, trite, nonsensical, but maybe instead of whining you should expose yourself to the incredible modern horror works that are out there. Rant over. Here is my pick of the week.
Creepy is one of those books that goes largely unnoticed, even by horror fans, and it’s a big shame. This anthology collects some of the most outright disturbing stories out there with throwbacks to classic horror tales. Creepy is an anthology every one of you should be reading, it pays it’s dues to the past and continues to bring bloody goodness into the present with some shocking shorts. The black and white artwork captures the mood of the book perfectly. So check out the preview and then kick yourself for not having read it all along.
