“The King in Yellow”

By | Sep 27, 2016 | Reviews

This horror adaptation from Self Made Hero is icy, elegant, and quite weird. Those familiar with I.N.J. Culbard’s previous adaptations won’t find that surprising; his approach is restrained but versatile, excavating the source material and coming up with strange artifacts. Written by Robert W. Chambers Illustrated and adapted by I.N.J. Culbard The supernatural stories that […]

By | May 4, 2015 | Columns

Wiebe and Christmas’s “Pisces” #1 Will Leave Your Head Swimming [Review]

By | May 1, 2015 | Reviews

Kurtis Wiebe’s last jaunt into horror, “Green Wake”, was a Lynchean experience that lingered in our memories. Johnnie Christmas’s idiosyncratic work on “Sheltered” was eye-catching and visceral. There were always going to be high expectations for a Shadowline horror series featuring both these talents, but with its nihilistic tone – and buckets of blood – […]
