I’ve always enjoyed reading the comics in newspapers and magazines. Batman, Superman, Spiderman, and other comic heroes were my favorite. Horror comic books is new to me. I was not aware of such until I saw the news on Halloween ComicFest for October 31, 2015.
Now, there is some serious horror comic books such as “30 Days of Night“, “Hellblazer (Original Sin)“, “The Walking Dead“, “Errie“, and “Locke & Key“. They are pretty chilling tales. Not for young children…..probably would keep them up at night and afraid to look under the bed. I know….I used to not be able to get me feet close to bed. I would jump on the bed then quickly throw the covers over my head.
However, if you are not into dark adventures, but love the comic appeal, then you may want to collect the twenty-one comic books released for Halloween ComicFest. It is a way for children and adults to enjoy their favorite comic book characters.

Film Created Into a Comic Book
Remember the movie “Creepshow” written by Stephen King? Creepshow has become a cult, horror classic move. The movie is about five short black-comedy stories, later were written into five comic books. “Father’s Day“, “They’re Creeping Up on You“, “The Crate“, “Something to Tide You Over“, and “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill” are tales of horror. They were created for young adults over 12 years of age.
Creepshow is all about a boy reading horror comic books who is punished by his father for reading them. The character on the comic book appears to the boy and the stories begin.
