Year in Review: Top Horror Comics of 2013

Another year is down the crapper, and we are left with many Is It Goods that spiral and sink with the other detritus of 365. My own unique brand of s--t went down the john with all the rest of the things digested from the entertainment sphere.

Before we begin, I’d like to add that The Walking Dead is not on this list, because I don’t read it anymore. It might have been good, I’m just woefully behind, so can’t speak on its quality. And this is the same way I am with many series. The following, though? Had to read them:

1. Colder

When I think of the comic series that effected me the most in 2013, without question the first thing that pops into my head is Colder. Ferreyra’s art blew me away, and the images from a land of crazies were fantastic. Plus, the plot was interesting. It stuck out, which says a lot considering how a lot of the other things I read in 2013 kind of blend together.

Despite being disappointed by the initial issues of the series, there is no denying it’s a force to be reckoned with. I’m waiting to see where this beast of the apocalypse goes, and even with a lack of action in Hell, Mignola’s Hell is cool to see.

I like it, I love it, I want some more of it. Even though Templesmith is off the project, he helped JMS to build a wonderfully dark universe. Part noir, part supernatural, all fascinating. The new artist is cool, though I’m holding out judgement on how he works on the series until he has more than a few issues under his belt. But, please, read this if you like supernatural detectives.

Clive motherfucking Barker. The man, the myth, the legend. I love this damn series so far. Anything with a version of God that licks junkie wounds is entertainment in my book.

5. Hellboy: The Midnight Circus


Hellboy_Circus-Pinnochio

I just really liked this one. It was cute, but also had hints of nefariousness within. It’s always cool to see Hellboy as a small one, and this comic, s--t, I don’t know, I just liked it, all right!

Hellboy: The Midnight Circus review


6. Hellblazer


timthumb-1

I mourn the loss of old man Constantine. I straight up didn’t even read the last issue of Hellblazer until today, because I was that bummed it’s all over. So you can keep your new, hip Constantine, I’m going to go reread old Hellblazer comics.

Hellblazer # 2…something, review

I enjoyed the setting of this comic: small town in a snow storm with a violent past. The art…well, despite some hilarious Tim and Eric style faces, and despite being so over zombies I could die myself, the art made an impression. In particular, the eyeless faces. Those were creepy. And the mythology of the piece was fun. I’m a proud Masshole, so scary s--t in the snow just does it for me.

Finally, let’s kick it up one more level.

My list goes to 11.
