"A Kiss to Save Him from the Grave!"
Cover art by Tom Sutton
Obviously I love romance comics. I also love horror. Especially bad horror. For me horror either needs to be really good or so bad that it's good. None of this mediocre garbage or worse yet, stuff so bad that it is ACTUALLY bad. That is just a tragic waste of potential.
At times horror has made me hesitant to turn out the lights, afraid to look in the mirror, startled by any unexplained noise in the night, but worst of all, horror has made me watch porn.
I'm not saying that I was watching a horror film that turned out to be porn, no. Just that, after watching a really badly acted horror film, my senses were dulled enough that when flipping to find something to watch the following evening I didn't recognize the clear "I'm Porn!" indicators in the next badly acted film. That is, until it was TOO late. (I should have known that a man running for government office wouldn't be so ripped.)
And I should know my porn. Many years ago I worked customer service for a cable company and any time some nineteen year old was too cheap to pay for his evening entertainment he'd call me to say that his pay-per-view picture quality was bad and he didn't want charged for his selection. He would inevitably be embarrassed as I put him on hold to check the channel on my end only to come back to explain that A) it was sun spots and he would be credited (very rare) or B) that that IS what it looks like when you film a porno in the back room of a Taco Bell with a camera phone (less rare).
Anyway, my whole point is, before I got off track, that I love romance comics and horror, so could there be any greater combination? I didn't think so either.
I would normally prefer to hold off my horror romance until October but I am just in the mood, so today I bring you Haunted Love #1.
