For all those who have asked, unfortunately I am not apart of the reboot at DC. I can't go into details right now so I have to leave it at that. I want to thank you all for the kind words to my work and for sure you'll see me again on a DC book.
The above is from Red Robin artist Marcus To. My thoughts:That is terribly disappointing to hear Marcus. Just know that tons of fans, including myself enjoyed your work a great deal and hope to see more published in the near future.
What's happened to horror in comics? There hasn't really been any on my radar since Pim and Francie a year and a half ago. (Zombie action stories like Walking Dead or Crossed don't count if they aren't the sort of thing to genuinely give readers nightmares)
Horror is still very alive in comics. I’m not the biggest horror comic reader but my personal favorite is Locke & Key by Joe Hill. If you aren’t reading that one, start at the beginning. I asked for some suggestions from other folks and here’s what they recommended: Hack/Slash, Echoes, Let Me In, Abattoir, American Vampire and Nightmare World.
What I’ve enjoyed about this series, other than the fantastic writing and insight, is having people who have a love for certain characters write about them. One of things I love about comics is the personal connection people have with characters. Where I have been able, I’ve invited guest posters to write about characters that I know they have an affinity for. Today’s guest poster is the talented Jill Pantozzi, “the Nerdy Bird” who writes for her own blog, Has Boobs, Reads Comics as well as the column “Hey that’s my cape!” for Newsarama as well as several other comics sites. Jill and I share a love for the same character. Can you guess who she is writing about?
