HORROR RIDES HIGH
There's been many great horror anthologies in the comic book field, from the EC and Warren classics to Steve Bissette's Taboo, which is why fans of both western and horror stories will be thrilled to learn about a new comic book anthology that combines the two of the genres.
The anthology is called Western Tales of Terror, and helping launch the book is none other than Steve Niles, who jumped at the chance after hearing about the book?s approach to the world of horror. 'I love two...NO...three things! I love horror, diversity and different genres so when I was asked to do this anthology I was all over it.'
Joining Niles in the first issue are Dan Hero Happy Hour Taylor, newcomer Porter McDonald, as well as the book's publisher Joshua Hale Failkov, along with artists Chuck Secret Skull BB, Nick Hyde Stakal, and illustrator Scott Keating. 'We couldn't be happier with the lineup for our first issue,' Failkov said, 'we have the best horror writer and the best independent creator working today, both donating their time and ideas to help make this book work. With the groundwork laid by them, and some really great guys already on board for issues #2 and #3, we hope that Western Tales starts a new trend in classic horror storytelling.'
Western Tales of Terror is scheduled to premiere at San Diego Comic-Con, at the Hoarse and Buggy Productions table in Independent Alley. In the meantime, make sure to check out the official website, here.
