Graphic Novel Round-up, Horror-Style.

Things have been nothing if not hectic, lately. Writing, day job, all the other little things needed to keep a household running…and for the past few weeks, it’s all been compounded and complicated by an unplanned but necessary kitchen reno. That’s a story in and of itself, but the too-long-didn’t-read version is this is what happens when your stove dies, you try to replace it, and you discover the entire thing (stove, gas pipes etc. ) was an illegal after-market installation by the previous owners that your home inspector failed to catch. Grrr.

Needless to say, I’ve been low on energy. REALLY LOW. But I still want to read. What’s a horror-loving girl to do?

Graphic novels, that’s what.

So, without further ado, here (in no particular order) are some of my favorite horror and horror-adjacent graphic novels.

Great art, dry humor…what else could you want?
Dark Horse did a whole set of these: Hauntings, Witchcraft, The Dead, and Monsters, and they are all fantastic. The Book of Hauntings contains one of the best slow-burn, disturbing, stick-with-you-forever horror stories I’ve ever read.
I love the book, but sometimes you just want the graphic novel version.
This one feels more like a guilty pleasure. True crime, graphic novel style.
This series is MG/YA, but works for adults too. Hits a lot harder than you’d expect. One of my all-time favorites.
We’ve watched the Netflix Series. We’ve watched the cancelled Fox Pilot. We’ve tried to find the cancelled Hulu Pilot with no luck (so far). All we can say is…read the graphic novels.
