Greetings fellow gluttons. You have entered a website/blog dedicated to Horror Comic Books and Horror Movies, a personal love of mine. Oh…but, I’m getting distracted already. I should first tell you who I am before I tell you about myself. I am The Countess of the Crypt. You can call me Countess, for short. I’ve been in love with horror movies and stories ever since I was a small child. I was told Stephen King’s Thinner from memory as a bedtime story. I watched all the classic horror films on a regular basis and always was willing to venture into some kept deep in the vault of terror. Some of my favorites include Stephen King’s Creepshow, Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses, the Nightmare on Elm St. series and Stephen King’s IT. But there’s also Halloween, The Shining, pretty much the whole Stephen King movie collection honestly (HUGE FAN). And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
That’s also only the Movies.
Let’s get to what else we will be doing here. I recently acquired a taste for horror comic books. Perhaps, a flavorful craving could better describe it. I started by reading The Punisher. What a badass Superhero in my opinion. Then, while getting into collecting those, I found Zenescope’s Grimm Tales of Terror…and my heart was stolen forever. I had the whole volume one within about a week. It just continued to spiral from there. Then a friend of mine from Twitter, @80sMveGraveyard, asked me if I ever thought of writing comic book reviews. He knew I liked to write and he knew I liked to read comic books so, he suggested I write reviews and he would put them on his website www.mvegraveyard.com. And I was there for a while. I took a break and decided to start my own website.
Here, at The Horror Report, you will find detailed synopses and reviews of comic books that are in my collection of about 1000 issues but, that is steadily growing larger every month. I’ve only been collecting for a little over a year. I do have my favorites that I read but, I also try to branch out and try new things. The owner of my local comic book store is great at keeping in touch and recommending new series when he sees something I might like. I will try to keep adding new series as I can and I promise to post as often as I can.
Most of all, I thank you for visiting and reading. Your comments are always appreciated and will be very useful in the development of this site.
So, I hope you enjoy. Thanks again. Happy Haunting!
