Most horror comics fall into three broad categories: Tales from the Crypt style shockers, creature features, and gore fests. Very few are able to incorporate horror elements and topical subtext to transcend the genre, but Image Comics Infidel by Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell certainly does.
Image’s new horror series Infidel is one that will appeal to fans of atmospheric horror stories as well as those who enjoy smart, socially conscious writing about the real fears that are created through prejudice and ignorance.
Fans of his work on the Mignolaverse will be happy to hear that Arcudi is about ready to start a second run on his critically acclaimed Image Comics title Rumble. Rumble is the story of an ancient warrior who, after being resurrected into the body of a scarecrow, embarks on a quest to find his actual physical form in a modern day urban setting.
Fans of Stranger Things who are unfamiliar with Paper Girls may first find the series appealing due to the initial surface comparisons, but once fans enter the world of Paper Girls, they will be hard pressed to leave it.
