In the annals of horror history, there’s special spot for comic books. It’s a perfect way to extend or enhance a horror franchise. If you can’t get Robert Englund for Freddy Krueger, you can still get his likeness and feel in a comic book. So thanks to HorrorHound Ltd., we’re getting a history lesson on horror comics. Halftone Horrors: The History Of Horror Movie Comic Books is a comprehensive guide on all things horror movie comics.
The Kickstarter for the project starts on November 16th, 2020.
Halftone Horrors: The History of Horror Movie Comic Books will be a 240-page full-color hardbound book telling the history of officially licensed comic book adaptations of every hit, cult, and obscure horror movie to receive attention within the comic book industry. This comprehensive book includes companies from the early days of this publishing industry. Like Dell, Gold Key, and Charlton Comics Group – to the indie boom of the 1990s (Adventure Comics, Epic, Innovation) – and ending on the modern-day comic giants (Dynamite Entertainment, Boom!, IDW Publishing). The guide covers everything from Nosferatu, Frankenstein, and Night of the Living Dead to A Nightmare on Elm Street, Hellraiser, and Army of Darkness.
From the looks of this, it’s going to be a must-have for any horror fan out there. From grizzled veterans to people just looking to enter the world of horror movie comics, it should be great. The book will retail for $35. Nathan Hanneman wrote the book.
