Have you heard about Skin Crawling Comics? Well, you have now, and you’re welcome. Skin Crawling Comics is a company that wants to
put the scary back in horror, and finally get away from the vomit inducing idea of horror we have today. This is very much needed. If you want my opinion of horror it’s that Saw set a horrible precedent for the modern horror genre. Saw came up with a formula that worked for Saw, and after companies were able to see how popular it became they all wanted to emulate it. Suddenly, horror became more about gross factor rather than actually trying to scare you.
The company is crowdfunding a new anthology of original horror comics. I had the pleasure of reading a preview of one of the stories named “Hoard.” The art wasn’t overly stimulating but still eye catching, the artist was good about not over crowding panels, the characters were well developed, the dialogue was well written and had a great flow. When I reached the end of the preview I remember thinking “NNNNNNOOOOOOOOO, I need to know the rest!!!” Please help them by supporting the indiegogo!
