It’s the 13th month of the year (Editor’s Note: No, it’s actually the 10th), and the witching-y day approaches! In honor of All-Hallow’s day, as any snotty 10-year old will try to correct you to, Nerdcenaries is doing a special countdown of spooky comics. For the next 13 days until Halloween, I’ll be talking about one scaaaaaary issue or original Graphic Novel per day, to get you in the proper mood (Editor’s Note: the proper mood is murder.) Here’s the ninth!:
Oh dang, I am mixing up the format today, folks. I was going to recommend Ragemoor, by Jan Strnad and Richard Corben, but I already gave a shout-out to Corben. Ragemoor’s good, but October’s all about the new, right? So, here’s some good spooky webcomics you can read for free! Then tomorrow, I’ll be doing my last regular spooky comic shout-out, and taking the last 3 days for something completely different! Here’s some comics:
Written and drawn by Cameron Stewart, Sin Titulo is a perfect example of a brilliant artist experimenting and bettering himself through his work; the unending 4×2 panel grid for each page forces you to examine them in more detail, even while Stewart isn’t afraid to break his own self-imposed rules. It’s a good story, with great art, go read it! It’s fully done now!
Written and drawn by Emily Carroll, this is a hell of a spooky comic. Carroll has nice short descriptive dialogue matched with great illustrations. One of the nicest things, however, is the use of a clever pacing trick using a webcomic format, forcing you to read the last three panels (pages?) at her pace. spooooooky.
(I don’t know many scary webcomics, so if you know any, leave them in the comments, and I’ll edit them in here.)
If you need some palette cleansing Halloween/monster related humor to get over the shivers, you should also check out Monster Plus, by Chad Bowers, Jojo Seames, and Josh Krach, Dracula the Unconquered, by Chris Sims, Steve Downer, and Josh Krach, and Jordan Witt’s Stomach Mouth comics. These are light on scares, but heavy on fun!
