Review: Cthulhu Tales #8

Colour Out of Space Updated Believe it or not, I’m not a huge horror fan.  Sure I like the occasional tale told to terrorize tikes, but most of the horror comics I’ve seen over the last 15 years seem to revel in the gore and violence associated with Halloween and Friday the 13th, but kicked up a notch for shock value alone.  I discovered the brilliance of H.P. Lovecraft about 8 years ago and have been hooked on his tales ever since. When Boom! Studios unveiled its Cthulhu line I snagged as many issues of the various titles as I…

Advanced Review: Hexed #1

Now that is creepy…  More please. There really aren’t enough good titles covering the various supernatural realms.  Sandman concluded years ago, as did Preacher, and while Buffy the Vampire Slayer continues to rock, Shadowpact got the axe.  Cthulhu Tales delivers the chilling supernatural sure to give the reader nightmares, but when it comes to supernatural thriller crime stories, the cupboard is pretty bare.  So, when Boom! Studios sent me an advanced copy of Hexed by Michael Alan Nelson with art by Emma Rios, I knew it was worth checking out, even if I am generally wary of titles I know…
