Good evening all! It's Halloween next week, so I'll share more of my favorite scary stuff. In comics, you can't do much better than the truly haunting horror to be found in EC comics 1950's triple shot of titles consisting of “Tale from the Crypt”, “Vault of Horror”, and “The Haunt of Fear”. The EC comics were anthologies rather than the more common continuing tales found in other comics of the time. The stories were often centered on revenge or a kind of shocking justice, delivered with a brutal twist. The artwork was always a cut above (no pun intended), providing the right blend of atmosphere and graphic gore. The comics were well remembered enough to inspire a feature film and sequel, and a TV series, as well as being reprinted by various publishers. Check it out!
The picture of the week was created using Project Dogwaffle.
The PC game of the week is Supreme Commander, which has consumed way too much of my dwindling free time.
Send your comments and feedback and I’ll read it all and respond to some of it.
Bye for now!
