Split Lip

Split Lip Horror Web Comic

Well then horror comic fans I have an absolute beauty of a find for you here in the amazing horror comic website Split Lip. This site features the stories of horror writer Sam Costello whose chilling and inventive work has been brought to life by a range of extremely talented artists. For all aspiring comic artists and writers with an interest in the horror genre this website is essential reading!

At the time of writing this post I have enjoyed 4 of the 20 stories available on this site and will certainly return to get my fill of horror before bedtime tonight. The site seems to be updated with a new story every month or two and this month’s offering ‘Bad Radio’ is a good place to delve in to this terrorific site as any. I won’t give anything away but the story is pretty disturbing, exactly what you would want from a horror comic.

The artwork above is just a sample of some of the talented artists that Sam Costello has persuaded to draw his twisted stories. I urge you to visit this site and bath in the glorious horror that is Split Lip.

The Stand: Captain Trips

by Ghastly McNasty

The Stand: Captain Trips

I’m currently half way through re-watching the tv/film version of Stephen King’s The Stand so I was dead chuffed to discover that this brilliant story is getting the comic book treatment from Marvel Comics.

Arguably King’s greatest novel The Stand tells the tale of the survivors of an apocalyptic virus that wipes out 99.99% of the world’s population. Of course there are some weird goings on thrown in the mix as well as the last of the humans gravitate towards good or evil…read it for yourselves if you haven’t already as both book and TV mini series are well worth it.

This new comic adaptation seems to have been positively received by all fans (The image above is actually of the 2nd print run as the first sold out fairly quickly) and it’s also Marvel’s second adaptation of some of Stephen King’s work, so they seem to know what they are doing.

Now The Stand is actually a beast of a book, over 1000 pages, and the tv film is 6 hours long! The comic version will be 30 issues long and told in a series of mini arcs, the first being The Stand: Captain Trips #1-5. Captain Trips will tell the story of the initial release of the virus and its effect on the world. The artwork by Mike Perkins looks promising and writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa seems keen on being faithful to the original material. Could very well be worth a purchase!
