It might not be your particular interest, but what's your take on horror comics? Do you think the genre and the medium work well together? If so, got any favourite creators/stories?

royalboiler:

Yeah, I’ve written some ideas for horror comics but never drawn them, I feel like maybe my work is too based in comfort for that. 

my favorite creators to do horror comics are Junji Ito and Emily Carroll. 

here’s Ito drawing of Lovecraft: I grew up reading Lovecraft’s stuff. I guess he’s on the sci fi end of horror. with lots of old aliens and ancient creatures of the deep. I feel like he was the 1st artist whose work made me deal with the idea that I could sometimes like work when I found the person to have some lame ideas. Like how Lovecraft’s work seems powered by a fear of the other that also had him spouting some shitty racist ideas.

friend: I love how you draw wings! Teach me!
Me: Uh, um, well, you just imagine what a fried chicken wing looks like, and then start making little wavy bits for feathers and shade the shapes for the bone structure and all of that
friend: ...a fried chicken wing?
Me: Yeah. Like, the shape of it. That's the shape of a wing. I mean I know I just said in order to draw wings you have to look at chicken wings, but yeah, chicken wings were wings once.
Me: .
Me: in their former life

Fans of the 90s manga Parasyte (known in Japan as Kiseijuu or Parasitic Beasts), the first promo poster for the Japanese live-action movie adaptation was released recently! It will be the first of a 2-part story, the first movie being released later this year, with the next to be released sometime in 2015. A new TV anime was also announced, but no visuals on that just yet.
