Ghastly Awards August 2012 Update

Share & Comment


Horror comics are becoming more and more frequent in our reading culture, and the Ghastly Awards are here to recognize, through peer nominations, those that shine the brightest. As a matter of fact so far this year, this entire list of titles (and some self published books) have already come out. We encourage all Comic Creators to take the time to head over to www.ghastlyawards.com and nominate those who you think are the best so far in your eyes.
    
Creators please remember that you can nominate up to 5 times throughout the year, so make your voice heard! For the month of June 2012 the judges are recommending you take a look at:

GODZILLA: THE HALF CENTURY WAR #1 (IDW) -  James Stokoe’s love of Godzilla comes crashing through in this first of a five part series. Fun, action-packed storytelling and lovingly detailed artwork highlight this inaugural issue. Stokoe’s lines are crisp and so is the tale, which will be told a decade at a time. Fierce, fun and flame-broiled! I can’t wait for the next city-stomping installment!  - Mike Howlett

BLACK KISS 2 #1 (IMAGE COMICS): Howard Chaykin revives his 80's erotic supernatural series in an all new 6 issue run that takes place 70 years before the first series with "the story behind the legendary story." ADULTS ONLY!   Also released this month and recommended (though not a comic book) - The Art & Making of ParaNorman. Steve Banes (http://thehorrorsofitall.blogspot.com/)

Dark Horse Presents #15 (DARK HORSE): Dark Horse Presents is the perfect book if If you don’t have much time or money to spend on comics. It's one of the only monthly modern anthologies and it is the absolute best bang-for-your-buck deal out there. 8 dollars for over 80 pages of brand new, high quality storytelling. Issue #15 offers the final installment of  "Ghost: Resurrection Mary" that leads into a new series from Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Noto simply titled "Ghost", starting this Fall. While the story stands on its own, it establishes the mood perfectly for the upcoming series, which you don't want to miss. Tthere's always something for everyone in Dark Horse Presents.  - Lonnie Nadler (www.Bloody-Disgusting.com)

Deadworld: War of the Dead #1-5 (IDW): Holy $*!+! That about sums up what just happened at the end of this GORE-Geous and ARGH-Mazing book. Collecting the mini series, that was showcased during Deadworld Month in August from IDW, this book captures the same spirit as what came before, and leads readers into the future of this Dead’verse. The artwork by Makkonen is beautiful. I think the best way to sum up what happens in this book, is to really categorize it as a solid story, that is a great base to lead into what is to come. Reed is a master of detail in his writing. This is hopefully only just the beginning of what is to come! - Decapitated Dan (www.decapitateddan.com)
