Graphic (Novel) Horror Blogathon
Graphic (Novel) Horror Blogathon
March is upon us and the Graphic Horror blogathon is on! I’m happy with the amount of participation in my last blogathon, the Comic Strip Double Dip, but this time around I wanted to do something a little less strictly associated with superheroes. Instead, I was thinking about how so many blogs out there spend October looking at horror movies and largely ignore horror for the other 11 months. So I wanted to do my part to promote horror movies on the other side of the calendar as Halloween, like in March. But of course, my site being my site and all I still have to have some sort of superhero or comic book connection when I started thinking about all the horror comics out there, like the classic Tales From the Crypt and various other EC Comics, 30 Days of Night, and the Walking Dead. There’s a few others, but I also started thinking about horror movies and thriller movies that would make great graphic novels, like the Cell, or Nightmare on Elm Street (which actually did become a comic book). So I’d like to hear from you and what horror movie you think is well suited to be a graphic novel, or even vice versa.
When: The entire month of March, feel free to contribute as many posts as you would like and I will tweet each entry daily and collect and showcase entries on a weekly basis. And make sure you use the hashtag #GraphicHorror.
What: When I’m talking about “graphic (novel) horror” movies, the graphic novel angle is mostly there to help you choose a horror movie that has some great visuals in it, something that you could see in a comic book. If you review movies, you can do a movie review, you can feature some screenshots that would make a good comic book page, or just write a few sentences about the connection. If you do movie lists, you can do a list of movies that would fit this topic. If you review comics, you can go the opposite way and review a comic that could be turned into a good movie. Check the other posts on this page for examples of what I’m looking for.
As for my own site, I’ll be taking a look at the movies that actually did come from comics or were later made into comics, like 30 Days of Night, the Tales From the Crypt movies, maybe even some Aliens and Nightmare on Elm Street.

Might be interesting, Bubbawheat. And I like that I have some time to think about what to contribute. 😀
That’s one good reason to start planning thing early. Looking forward to what comes out of this.
Sounds like fun, Bubbawheat! I’d like to help out this March if I could. Maybe reviewing some horror comic titles? I am currently reading a few. E mail me, when you can, with any details. Looking forward to contributing, if you’ll have me!
Great to hear!
Hey, I would love to do something on Marvel’s Tomb of Dracula series. Would that fit in okay?
If it’s OK I would like to do Creepshow. I figure that counts, right?
Sure thing! I’ve got you down.
