Only 3 days until Halloween Comic Fest! Be sure to stop by this Saturday for free comics and to show off your best Halloween costumes! Matt is helping to get us all in the Halloween Spirit with some comic and movie recommendations. So without further ado, here is Matt with today’s suggestions:
Hello everyone! Wow only 3 entries left? I hope you’ve been enjoying this as much as me.
Today’s comic suggestion is Providence, the follow up to Neonomicon, a book that appeared earlier on this very countdown! Just like Neonomicon, this book is the work of the brilliant writer Alan Moore and artist Jacen Burrows.
Providence tells a tale of a reporter digging deep into what will be the strangest story he has ever uncovered. Set deeply entrenched in the Cthulhu Mythos , Providence delivers a madness filled tale where each word and image is placed with painstaking perfection. From the horrors that lurk just out of sight to the deep exploration of character provided at the end of each issue in the form of personal letters written by the protagonist, this work demands your attention and is one you will not soon forget.
I know I’m hyping this one up a lot, but I will stand by what I have said. This is the definitive H.P. Lovecraft Comic.
If it is a movie recommendation you are here for, look no further than today’s film The Taking of Deborah Logan by director/writer Adam Robitel and co-writer Gavin Heffernan.
This is one I’ve been handing out for years as my “must see if you want to get super creeped out” movie.
The story follows a documentary crew who are recording a woman’s struggle with living with Alzheimer’s Disease. As the film progresses we start to find out that it may not be Alzeheimer’s Disease that is affecting her. Instead, it may be something for more evil that has this poor woman in its grasp.
Enjoy and check back tomorrow for more spooky goodness!
