November 2014 Discussion Post: Creepy Comic Books + Related Giveaway!

November 1, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Over the past couple year and a half, we’ve slowly been accumulating lists of community recommendations for the best in creepy movies, games, books, and more – here’s the round up of all the related discussion posts thus far:

It’s probably obvious from the post title, but this month we’ll be adding to this series by discussing our favorite creepy comic books!

Please weigh in with your personal top picks for any comics that you can conceivably call ‘creepy’ – this includes topics like horror, zombies (even zombie superheroes!), paranormal and ghosts, esoteric magic and the supernatural, aliens, cryptozoology, etc. If you think that it’s a solid quality book and has themes that you could imagine showing up in a good Creepypasta, feel free to suggest away.

Obviously, please refrain from suggesting horror manga in this post, as that already has its own discussion topic here.

Webcomics are fine to suggest, and if possible, please remember to link to the webcomic’s URL in your comment.

I’ll periodically update this post to make a masterlist of the comic books suggested, as I’ve done with past posts.

As the entry deadline for the comic giveaway has passed, I’m putting the rest of this post under a cut.

Creepy Romance

The following images are from the upcoming “Creepy Romance” book by Cosondra Sjostrom. The last few times I’ve posted about community writers releasing their books or kickstarters for Creepypasta-esque projects it was well-received, and I think that this particular project will appeal to quite a few of you, as well. I wanted to get the word out and hopefully get some more support for this, as it seems like a fun concept with an extra charity aspect… and, selfishly, I want it to be successfully funded because I want the book.

Anyhow.

From Cosondra:

Creepy Romance is a collection of love quotes that are…disturbing yet endearing paired with original artwork from an artist. Over 45+ Artists were assigned a quote and each artist was given free-will to create something inspired by their assigned quote. Proceeds after production costs will be donated to FixNation to help save homeless cats.

Why Creepy Romance? We are all Creeps and We all Fall in Love.
Almost everyone has had that awkward moment when they say something to their lover/object of desire where their intent was to be romantic but somehow accidentally said the most disturbing thing ever.

If you’re interested in supporting the indiegogo fundraiser for this project, click here – it runs until Dec 23. If you don’t want to do any of the fundraiser tiers but you still want to preorder the book, you can do so at the project’s Etsy page.

No affiliate links or anything are present here and I’m not involved with this project, I just genuinely thought you guys would be interested in seeing this, so enjoy!

*As an aside, for those of you with smartphones – is this a good thumbnail size for images? It looks a little small on desktop screens, but I wanted it to look okay on tablets/phones as well.

Okay, I know I had an announcement here about how this gallery functions, but apparently that part of the draft got eaten before it published. Thanks, WordPress. Love you too.

Anyhow, for those of you who can’t figure it out without help – when you click an image, it takes you to that image’s page. From there, you can either click the image to enlarge or leave a comment on that specific image. It’s set up this way in case people wanted to comment page-by-page as they read the story. However, as I originally said before the site decided to randomly delete it, it can also be set up where the thumbnails go straight to the image with no individual image comment forms. Let me know which way you guys would prefer, and that’s how we’ll do it for future submissions like this.
