Hey /co/, what are some of the best horror comics you've ever read? I love the horror genre - I love me some good spooky skeletons and whatnot. Anything that gives me the willies or creeps me out.

I'm currently reading Harrow County, Survivors Club, Morning Glories, etc.

I've heard Moore's run of Swamp Thing is horror, right? I want to hear some suggestions and why!

I read a horror comic about a girl having nightmares and this yellow eye thing following her. It had a creepy version of the 3 little pigs.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about

I don't know, but that sounds awesome. I hope we both find out ITT.

It was pretty cool. It was the second comic that my wife actually enjoyed. The first was USM: The Death of Spider-Man

Gerber's Man-Thing

Found it! Night Mary. I read it as part of an anthology book called Crawl Spaces

Nailbiter is pretty good, new issue out today!

I wouldn't call it horror but you have no excuse not to read it anyway.

Try Colder. Pretty good on the body-horror aspect.
>>
>>77874810
Hack/Slash (Dumb fun and cheesecake more than horror)
Hellblazer
Locke and Key
Nailbiter
Saga of Swamp Thing
>>
The hellraiser comics are great, especially the ones from the early 90s. Had crazy weird art and every story for the most part was a stand alone story. There's also a current hellraiser series that takes place I think 20 or 30 years in currents times after the first two hellraiser flicks.

This was great. Only four issues, but legit scary.

Also a comic called Necronomicon, from Boom Studios. Four issues too. Lovecraftian. Incredibly creepy artwork. (if you liked the body-horror of nu52-Animal Man, you'll love this one.)

>>77876491
What would you call it then?

>>77876511

Echoes. 5 issues. Themes of insanity and murder.
>>
>>77874810
Some good one for starting out is Moore's Swamp Thing. It's more existential than anything, but the art alone is worth reading. People lose their minds and everything in that book

Black Hole is another good book. It sucks you in almost immediately

Joe R Lansdale has written most of my favorite supernatural/horror comics. Jonah Hex and Blood and Shadows for Vertigo and Lone Ranger and Tonto for Topps.
>>
>>77874810
Animal Man and Swamp thing for like the first 10 or so issues use a lot of body Horror elements. The whole thing up till issue 17 or so is pretty dark and freaky. But outside of the implication of the world they live in I wouldn't call them horror though. Just the ideas in them are horrifying.

a sci fi mini called Caliban was storytimed here last October, I thought it was cool
>>
>>77874810
I can definitely recommend Swamp Thing, while not outright "spooky" horror most of the time, it does pull of some great creepy atmospheres. You might enjoy Hellblazer as well
>>
Horror Recommends:
Afterlife with Archie
Witch Doctor
Wytches
Ghosted
Severed
Freaks of the Heartland
Neonomicon (Alan Moore fish rape)
Outcast
Providence
