Friday the 13th is a great time for spooky comics
Last year I shared 5 creepy comics to read on Friday the 13th… since we’ve got 2010′s only Friday the 13th today, here are some other recommendations to read under the covers with a flashlight tonight.
1. Tomb of Dracula
Especially the Marv Wolfman-Gene Colan issues; this horror series was among the 1970′s best.
A horror anthology from Vertigo featuring work by Tim Truman, Joe R. Lansdale and Jim Lee, among others. Issue #11 was nominated for an Eisner, and won a Bram Stoker award.
3. Dracula (Topps Comics adaptation)
I enjoyed this extremely atmospheric adaptation of Francis Ford Coppola’s “Dracula” film more than the actual movie. Art by Mike Mignola (“Hellboy”).
4. 30 Days of Night
The original miniseries, by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith, about vampires in Barrow, Alaska, where the sun doesn’t rise for 30 days, is chilling.
More of a horror-themed comedy, “Boneyard” mixes sexy humor with monsters and vampires. When Michael Paris inherits a graveyard owned by his grandfather, he becomes enmeshed with the town’s resident ghouls and oddballs.
