Reader Beware: Hack Slash (Horror Comic)

Fair warning to all the kiddies out there, this comic is strictly for the mature crowd. The contents of this comic contains drugs, sex, and adult language. Reader discretion is advised.

Slashers are one of the most popular horror genres of all time. It would take me hours to count how many slasher franchises/movies have been made in movies alone. Famous slashers are basically household names. But what about the people who survive them? The Final Girls, as TV Tropes calls them. Some of them live happily ever after. Some of them are forced to try to survive sequels. And one of them becomes a hunter of hunters. This is Hack Slash.

Halloween in June Editorial: Scary Superheroes on the Silver Screen

Marvel is currently heading a huge boom in superhero movies. DC is trying it’s best to keep up, but ever since The Dark Knight, they just keep stumbling over their own feet at every opportunity. However, even with the giant market of masked marauders taking up the big screen, we haven’t even gotten a fraction of the heroes in comics into the “real” world of movies. Specifically, we haven’t gotten many (good) representations of those supernatural superheroes since Hellboy 2. In my opinion, I think it’s time for the stranger side of comics to start hitting theaters.

Reader Beware: Deadpool Kills Deadpool

“I am my own worst enemy.”  This is a saying that has been said by a lot of people.  Heck, it’s a sentiment I’ve felt about myself a few times.  Now that Deadpool has killed every hero and villain from both his own universe and the literary universe, who else could there be left to kill?  Himself, of course!  And for Deadpool, as everyone knows, there’s no kill like overkill!  So it’s Deadpool’s mission to kill every alternate version of himself he can find.  And it’s also Deadpool’s job to put a stop to all the killing.  Confused?  Good!  This is Deadpool Kills Deadpool.

Reader Beware: Deadpool Killustrated

There are a number of literary classics that I have not read either because I haven’t gotten to them yet or because I never plan to.  Moby Dick, Little Women, Tom Sawyer, a whole slew of books that probably still appear on school reading lists to this day, all unread by me.  Well, luckily, I don’t need to read those books anymore.  This is because Deadpool is traveling through the Ideaverse, where all these books originate, and killing off all your favorite characters one by one.  This is Deadpool Killustrated.

Reader Beware: Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe

I don’t have many superhero comics in my collection.  This mostly has to do with something I just sort of don’t get:  comic book continuity.  As a result (and, really, just due to my tastes), the majority of my collection is made up of one particular genre:  Horror.  Still, I’ve been wanting to throw my hat into the comic book ring for some time as there are some characters that intrigue me.  Namely, Deadpool, one of the more famous of Marvel’s characters thanks to his zany nature and tendency to break the fourth wall.  Imagine my surprise when I came across a Deadpool comic that was billing itself as a horror comic.  This is Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe.
