Review – Gideon Falls Issues 1 & 2

by horrorfixon 04/20/2018
I grew up collecting comics. At at time when they were barely an afterthought I championed the positive impact they could have on our youth if treated like the fables they were written to represent. They molded my concept of morality and showed me that good wasn’t just an abstract concept, it was a lifestyle. […]

Review – Boom Studios’ The Woods #1 (2014)

by horrorfixon 05/09/2014
I could go on at great lengths about how I’ve found Boom’s library of titles to be consistently impressive. Their Hellraiser titles have singlehandedly elevated Barker’s mythology, bringing it back from the slump brought on by several bad direct-to-video installments that barely hinted at the greatness of the first film. The Returning, an original storyline […]

Ash and the Army of Darkness #1-5: All the Boomsticky You’ve Missed So Far!

by horrorfixon 04/28/2014
The Evil Dead franchise has had its fair share of spin-offs, especially in the form of graphic novels. From the original Dark Horse film adaptation to the Dynamite produced series, Ash has transitioned from the anti-hero to a symbol of almost pure comic relief. Although audiences can never seem to truly get enough of the […]

Review – An Aurora Grimeon Story: Will O’ The Wisp

by horrorfixon 01/30/2014
Will O’ The Wisp in a lot of regards is a book hard to categorize. With elements of horror and dark fantasy along with some decidedly young adult themes, the Aurora Grimeon book stands apart from many of Boom’s (the book was officially released under Boom’s Archaia imprint) other titles, the likes of which include […]

Review – Hellraiser: The Dark Watch #12

by horrorfixon 01/20/2014
For those of you following Boom’s Hellraiser line of comics, many familiar characters in the Barkerverse have changed significantly since the mythology was revisited. Both Kirsty Cotton and Harry D’amore have become priests and priestesses of hell. Elliot Spencer (aka Pinhead) has defected to the “other” hell to lead a war against the cenobites and […]

Review – The Wake #1

by horrorfixon 09/22/2013
So, we’re jumping on board a little late with this title, BUT I’ve heard nothing but good things about this series and thought we needed to devote a little time to it. Doctor Archer, a marine biologist with specializations in cetological vocalizations is a little down on her luck. Shunned be her peers, ostracized from her prior […]

Review – Clive Barker’s The Next Testament #1

by horrorfixon 06/07/2013
I have a been a big fan of the recent Hellraiser series of comics from Boom! and was eager to dig into the new series from Barker and co-writer Mark Miller, The Next Testament. Say what you will about Barker’s offbeat narrative of human depravity that weaves a thread through most of his work, but […]

Review – The Walking Dead 110

by horrorfixon 05/20/2013
Folks might find the latest installment of the insanely popular book a little antepenultimate, BUT the book is ramping up to major events. Kal is still on the fence about his thoughts on The Saviors and represents where most stand in the days before what is surely war. Rick levels with Eugene about the real […]

Review – Hellraiser #17

by horrorfixon 12/09/2012
Issue 17 of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser sees the hit series from Boom Studios reaching a fever pitch as the story arc builds to an epic crescendo. Hell has come to earth as Pinhead/Elliot Spencer’s plan comes to full fruition after his violent betrayl of The Harrowers. The world watches with horror as legions of the […]

Review – The Uninvited (iPad App)

by horrorfixon 12/09/2012
I admit it. I scoffed at the iPad when it was first introduced. I thought it was nothing more than an oversized iPod touch and I was going to be damned if I was going to lay out that kind a money for an oversized iPod. Let’s fast forward to me putting my foot right […]
