Horror stories: I've never known what to make of The Comic Fanatic. That being said, the site has compiled "20 Horrific Halloween Treats," a Niles-heavy list of "the best horror comics in the industry today." Although several are obvious choices, there are a few I've never heard of (and more than a couple that lead me to question the selection process):
  1. The Walking Dead (Image)
  2. Bogus Dead (Jeroman Empire)
  3. Zombie Highway (Bughouse Comics)
  4. Remains (IDW Publishing)
  5. 30 Days of Night, Darker Days and 30 Days of Night: Return to Barrow (IDW Publishing)
  6. Aleister Arcane (IDW Publishing)
  7. Wake the Dead (IDW Publishing)
  8. The Nail (Dark Horse)
  9. Army of Darkness: Ashes to Ashes (Devil's Due)
  10. Hack/Slash: Girls Gone Dead (Devil's Due)
  11. Before Dawn (Green Fly Productions)
  12. The Black Forest (Image)
  13. Sword of Dracula (Image)
  14. Phang and Mak (Silent Devil Productions)
  15. Jack the Lantern (Castle Rain Entertainment)
  16. Students of the Unusual (3 Boys Productions)
  17. Western Tales of Terror (Hoarse and Buggy Productions)
  18. The Wicked West (Image)
  19. The Drowned (Image)
  20. Angel Fire (Shattered Frames)
I'm sure this list says something about the state of horror comics, but I don't know what that is.
