Interview – Manen Lyset, Lord of the Gourds

How long have you been writing for? I just celebrated my 4th Writingversary (as I like to call it) back in October. That said, I’ve been doing text-based role playing for over 20 years, so I’ve always written in some form or another. And now the jig is up. You know my terrible secret, I’m a nerd. I know, I hid it SO WELL. What is it about horror that made you think ‘This is the genre for me’? I’ve…

Papercuts: A Passage In Black

Papercuts: A Passage In Black By Ryan “HB” Mount **Spoiler Free Review** As the fall approaches and the cool air fills the night, we all start to think about what lies ahead.  For many, Halloween is around the corner and horror movies begin to dominate our watching experiences.  However, this year, the best scary stories won’t be on film, but will be told on black and white pages.  That is because author, Cullen Bunn, releases his newest work, A Passage…

Papercuts: The Eyrie

Papercuts: The Eyrie

Papercuts: The Eyrie By Ryan “HB” Mount   The Eyrie is an independent horror comic from creator/writer Thom Burgess and art by Barney Bodoano.  The tale is one of a troubled photographer, enters into a creepy British town and creepiness ensues. The overall story telling was well done and while not on a level of modern Scott Snyder horror tale like Severed, but compared to current horror anthology comics, it stands up and is on par.  Most of the heavy…

Papercuts: Marvel's Chamber of Chills

Papercuts: Chamber of Chills from Marvel Comics By Ryan “HB” Mount   In the late 1960’s and into the 1970’s DC Comics was not the only producer of many horror genre comics.  Marvel seemed to be in an arms race against DC with the amount of horror comics they were producing at the exact same time. Chamber of Chills was just one of Marvel’s titles and it was published from November 1972 through November 1976 and ran for 25 issues….

Papercuts: 05.28.2017 By Ryan “HB” Mount Blood Blister #2 (Aftershock) Issue #1 of Blood Blister was twisted, gross, and a perfect start to a creepy story. Issue #2 was the definition of a sophomore slump and a bit of a letdown in comparison. The art overall had a very different feel overall.  It had too much black ink covering up Tony Harris’s typically wonderful art and dampened the enjoyment of this issue. The story telling in this issue also seemed…
