The Dark North

Originally crowdfunded in 2015, this illustrated prose/art book fusion features five unique tales ranging from Norse mythology to science fiction. The Dark North showcases artwork by Scandinavia’s leading illustrators and concept artists Peter Bergting, Henrik Pettersson, Joakim Ericsson, Magnus Olsson, and Lukas Thelin, prose by Martin Dunelind, and a foreword by author and filmmaker Clive Barker!

It was interesting to learn from the above summary that this was originally brought to life thanks to crowdfunding. Whether or not that attempt to do so had been successful, which gladly it was, I hope it would have still been brought to the masses. Once you open up The Dark North and see the wonders within, you’ll be thankful that it happened regardless of the crowdfunding success.

The Dark Horse Book of Horror

Mike Mignola, Hellboy, and a roster of great creators and characters explore the dark corners of the horror genre in thirty-five stories of witchcraft, ghosts, and the risen dead.

Originally published in four award-winning anthologies, these stories featured the debut of Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson’s Beasts of Burden series, and standalone stories by Kelley Jones, Kurt Busiek, and many others.

In addition to the comics, Gary Gianni (Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea) illustrates stories by legendary authors such as Robert E. Howard (Conan) and William Hope Hodgson (The House on the Borderland), and Scott Allie interviews experts in the occult fields, including a seance medium and a witch who specializes in love spells.

I absolutely loved whenever the book fair came around during school and...

Calla Cthulhu TPB

Being a teenager isn’t easy, especially after you learn you carry the bloodline of Lovecraft’s Great Old Ones in your veins. Instead of a summer job and checking out colleges, Calla Tafali finds herself battling supernatural monsters, human assassins, and her uncle, the King in Yellow. She must resist his call to embrace her own chaotic heritage and join the family business, as well as prevent the awakening of the terrible deity asleep and dreaming in the corpse city of R’lyehthe Dread Dead One! Prepare yourself for weird action, adventure, and mystery in the Mighty Mythos Manner!

While I’m at least generally aware of the Cthulhu mythos, I am a long shot from being very familiar with it...

The Black Sinister

A pitch-black tale of a city that lives in fear—not of crime or gangs, but the billionaire vigilante sworn to protect them.

Emerson Black’s superhero identity is no secret: patrolling the night skies as the Black Sinister, he enforces his own brand of psychotic justice, no matter the cost. Joined by his unhinged butler Danby, Emerson protects the citizens of Coal City from kidnappers, gangs, and jaywalkers alike. But who will protect the city from the Black Sinister? And what happens when the mayor hatches a plan to finally rid Coal City of its deranged antihero?

Compared to a lot of hardcore comic fans, I can’t say that I read a lot of comics, but I do read a good amount. From time to time there’s going to be a comic you aren’t a fan of, but could be great for others...
