Give Hart D. Fisher a platform to speak and he’ll use it as an opportunity to speak his mind no matter who he pisses off. A crusader for the first amendment, the always controversial Fisher isn’t afraid to ruffle some feathers and in his first interview with Bloody-Disgusting he did just that. Fisher went in-depth about his highly influential comic book publishing house Boneyard Press, his new horror 24 horror channel (www.AmericanHorrors.com), and then exposed the crazy behind-the-scenes stories of comic book industry that the pros will never speak of.
For round two with Bloody-Disgusting Fisher is like a rabid dog unleashed and out for blood. Fisher talks about the impact of Boneyard Press had on the horror scene, his hatred for My Chemical Romance and “The Umbrella Academy” creator/writer Gerard Way, and why Kickstarter campaigns are for beggars. Then for his encore, Hart puts Lianne “Spiderbaby” MacDougall on blast for her plagiarism scandal, and why he can no longer support Fangoria Magazine. This interview is simply Hart D. Fisher unleashed and uncensored. READ MORE

As I sat at the computer looking back at the year in comics, horror particularly, I came to the realization that there had been so many great stories told in 2009. So many great story tellers and their equally talented artists had lent their talents to titles such as “The Walking Dead,” “Freddy VS Jason VS Ash,” “Locke & Key,” “Deadworld,” ect…that it was really a mixed bag. But even with such titles floating about in my imagination my pick for story of the year had been made months before when I picked up the final issue of the 6 part mini-series. READ MORE
