Horror Manga: Like I Need Another Hobby

Since I stumbled onto Hell Yeah Horror Manga a few days ago, I can’t stop thinking about Japanese horror. North America has nothing on the Japanese in terms of visual horror impact.

To illustrate my point:


“Fushigi no Tatari-chan”


“Corpse Party Blood Covered”


“I Am a Hero”

Even taken completely out of context, as these are, they’re immediately effective. (Tell me at least one of these won’t show up in your dreams tonight…)

I read horror comics when I was a kid, and “normal” comics when I got older. It’s been a while, but I’m getting the urge to pick up the habit again.

Any recommendations?

Dark Craft: Lovecraft Edition

“In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.”

And of course, a special mention: Disappointing Monsters, a webcomic with a recurring Cthulhu who’s “a bit of a dick”.
