In Tales of Fear #1, a new six-story horror anthology comic from Aazurn Publishing, writer and illustrator Gary Scott Beatty is determined to drag comic books into the modern age. Check out an early look at the artwork from all six stories and more right here!

About Tales of Fear #1:
“Tales from the Crypt was groundbreaking, but that was over 60 years ago,” Beatty explains. “I set out to break away from the typical mindset that a comic book has to be a Creepy clone to be a horror anthology.”

Tales of Fear #1, available ONLY through pre-order in February at your local or online comic shop, is comprised of “six horror tales that push the boundaries of good taste,” says Beatty. “It’s classic horror modernized for today’s comic readers in a realistic, new style,”

Beatty has been experimenting with style since his Xeric winning Jazz: Cool Birth in 2008, a murder mystery with art inspired by 1950s album cover designs. “In Tales of Fear #1 I return to my painter training,” Beatty adds. “I use today’s computer tools to come up with an in-your-face look well suited to horror.”

All the stories are complete in this issue “because readers don’t have the patience these days for continued comics. This is a good thing!” Beatty laughs. “I like writers who cut the filler and get to the point so that’s the way I write.”

Breaking with current, outdated trends doesn’t mean Beatty ignores conventions that work. He concludes, “I’m having a lot of fun in this book, and readers who agree blowing a zombie’s brains out is fun will enjoy it, too. I feature a host to introduce the stories, but he isn’t just some random creep — he’s integral to the book itself.”

Below you’ll find a video preview (with music by the appropriately indie Star Destroyer), Tales of Fear #1‘s cover art, and a look at all six stories: Zombie Porn, Giants Fishing, Door, Crack, Rayslist, and TXT. For more info visit both Aazurn Publishing and Indie Comics Magazine online.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!

A couple plan to purchase an old home but would like one last tour before the closing. They’re guided around the estate by a creepy realtor that may have more in store than they bargained for.

Searching floor by floor, they begin to discover the remnants of its sordid and terrifying past… A popular 80’s franchise gets a modern upgrade, but at what price? On Halloween night a teen left home alone meets a trick or treater that wants more than just candy. A door to door insurance salesman makes a Thanksgiving house call with monstrous consequences. Andrew and Sara are happily married and plan on spending some quality time together, but something sinister has other plans for their evening. Carol’s Christmas Eve turns into a fight for survival when a vengeful stranger isn’t feeling the holiday spirit. Lastly, a birthday party turns bloody when some unexpected guests drop by at the wrong time.

Seven interwoven tales of terror… how many stories does your house have?
