Halftone Horrors: The History of Horror Movie Comic Books is a labor of love from a team of lifelong horror and comic book fans. From the makers of HorrorHound Magazine, this hardbound full-color book is set to be the most comprehensive guide to the merging worlds of horror cinema and comic books. This guide takes you through the early days of Dell, Charlton, and Gold Key Comics … from the crazy Indie-fueled ’80s and ’90s (Aircel, Blackthorne, Adventure) … to the new millennium resurgence of the art form (Boom!, Dynamite, IDW). As fans of this industry, we thought “how cool it would be if someone created a book detailing the history of every horror movie-based comic ever produced?”
Then we remembered, thanks to the decades of research and 15 years producing HorrorHound Magazine, we had the resources to make it a reality! Over the past eight months HorrorHound Editor-in-Chief Nathan Hanneman began to piece together that history, in an effort to deliver the most exhaustive guide to the subject ever imagined.
This 240-page Hardcover is designed to tell the history of horror cinema as viewed through the world of comics. To take readers on a journey to learn how the industry evolved over time. Not only to find out how characters from our favorite scary movies were translated to the funny pages, but to also follow their journey from publisher to publisher – either in adapted format or all-new stories and adventures.
