Founded in 2011 by Decapitated Dan with the help of Steve Banes, Mike Howlett, Lonnie Nadler and Mykal Banta, the Ghastly Awards recognize outstanding achievements in Horror Comics over a range of
15 different categories. The nominees are chosen by other horror comic
book professionals and winners are chosen by a panel of judges.
The Awards are named
