We've highlighted five comics that are perfect recommendations for any Halloween ComicFest fan looking to get into scarier comics!
In this week's list, for books coming out 1/10/18, there's definitely something for everyone: there's the smell of death around Deadman, Hellboy gets collected, the revenge fantasy continues in Coyotes, and more!
(W) Neal Adams (A/CA) Neal Adams
The Spectre, Etrigan the Demon and the Phantom Stranger smell death around Deadman-and they've come to get a whiff! But they're about to learn how little they know-because the secrets they seek are actually held in the mind of Deadman's father...and those secrets lie very close to a near-death experience.
Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1954 TP
(W) Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson (A) Richard Corben, Stephen Green, Brian Churilla, Patric Reynolds (CA) Mike Mignola
No longer a rookie, Hellboy joins other Bureau agents in a series of far-flung mysteries that take them searching for yetis terrorizing an Arctic research team, into the American suburbs where a family is haunted by a phantom monkey, and to a Hong Kong showdown with demons drawn to a Chinese artifact. iZombie co-creator Chris Roberson teams with Mike Mignola and a group of artists to uncover the horror and intrigue of a growing occult Cold War. Mignola also reunites with legendary artist Richard Corben for the short story "The Mirror." Collects Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1954 #1-#5 and "Hellboy: The Mirror" from Free Comic Book Day 2016.
(W) Sean Lewis (A/CA) Caitlin Yarsky
The revenge fantasy continues! Faced with Abuela and the old women that originally warred with the Werewolves, Red and Coffey discover a history of this ancient war and of Red's lost sister, Maria. All the while, Adlin Industries continues to torture the werewolf Seff in pursuit of the greatest weapon imaginable.
The Damned #7
(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Brian Hurtt
If Eddie is already dead, why are so many people so determined to kill him? Nonstop action and mayhem dominate this issue as Eddie's cursed brother, Morgan, has to drag Eddie's dead and deadly corpse around town while trying to figure out why so many people are after his brother!
Hack Slash vs. Vampirella #4
(W) Shawn Aldridge (A) Rapha Lobosco (CA) Kyle Strahm
Cassie and Vampirella's Vegas Vacation continues as they take the fight to the Blood Queen and her horde to the scenic Nevada desert, where the secrets buried there will come back to haunt them. But not in a charming "old lady who died 100 years ago sitting in a rocking chair" kinda way.
