Bestselling writer James Tynion IV and writer/editor Steve Foxe have launched a brand new pay what you want horror anthology called Razorblades: The Horror Magazine today and available now at ReadRazorblades.com. The first collection is 75 pages long and features stories and art from creators like Ram V, Marguerite Bennett, Nick Robles, Dani, Lonnie Nadler, Jenna Cha, Tynion himself, and more.

The quarterly magazine is sold exclusively by Tynion’s own Tiny Onion Studios. “Our goal was to focus on the rising class in the comic book industry,” Tynion writes in the issue’s introduction. “Young creatives, starting to make their name in horror, or in comics in general. We’ve asked them to bring us their most frightening work, grounded in the modern world, not trying to evoke something from decades past.”

The project sprouted while creators were experiencing slowdowns in the industry due to the pandemic. To make this project even more unique, contributors to Razorblades maintain full creative ownership of their intellectual property, allowing them to potentially build on and spin-off ideas first put to page here. The anthology will also feature several serialized stories, starting with Killboy from Tynion IV and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz (Hit-Girl), and A Dream of Time by Ram V and rising talent John J. Pearson.

Check out a preview below featuring a taste from three different stories.

(THURSDAY, JULY 30th) Bestselling writer James Tynion IV (BatmanSomething Is Killing the Children, Department of Truth) and writer/editor Steve Foxe have assembled a murderer’s row of talent to launch RAZORBLADES: THE HORROR MAGAZINE, an all-new quarterly horror anthology sold exclusively through Tynion’s own Tiny Onion Studios.

Available immediately, RAZORBLADES #1 is a nearly 80-page, pay-what-you-want digital collection of comics, prose, and illustrations, featuring creators like Ram V (These Savage Shores), Marguerite Bennett (Animosity), Nick Robles (The Dreaming: Waking Hours), DaNi (Coffin Bound), Lonnie Nadler & Jenna Cha (Black Stars Above), as well as an extensive interview between Tynion IV and Scott Snyder (American VampireUndiscovered Country).

“Our goal was to focus on the rising class in the comic book industry,” Tynion writes in the issue’s introduction. “Young creatives, starting to make their name in horror, or in comics in general. We’ve asked them to bring us their most frightening work, grounded in the modern world, not trying to evoke something from decades past.”

Born out of Tynion IV and Foxe discussing their mutual love of horror anthologies like Steve Bissette’s Taboo, which serialized the initial chapters of Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell’s From HellRAZORBLADES came together quickly while creators navigated COVID-related publishing slowdowns over the summer.

To facilitate that outreach, all contributors to RAZORBLADES maintain full creative ownership of their intellectual property, allowing them to potentially build on and spin off of ideas introduced here. The anthology will also feature several serialized stories, starting with Killboy from Tynion IV and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz (Hit-Girl), and A Dream of Time by Ram V and rising talent John J. Pearson.

“With no slight at all to crowd-funded projects, we didn’t want to work on that timeline,” Foxe added. “We were impatient about getting Razorblades into readers’ hands, especially after such a tumultuous summer for the industry. A surprise launch—a jump scare—felt right.”

Razorblades #1, which features a cover by horror illustrator Trevor Henderson, is available now through ReadRazorblades.com, where readers can name their own price. A special-edition print run, limited to only 500 copies, is also available for preorder. Future issues are planned every quarter, with issue #2 dropping just ahead of Halloween.
