Fans of Horror Comic series like Tales from The Crypt, and John Carpenter’s Tales For of Halloween Night, have something exciting to get behind this month. Horror Comic, Blood & Gourd, is currently funding their 3rd issue on Kickstarter for release in Spring of 2018!
Blood & Gourd is an original Horror Comic series from Dead Peasant. They describe the series as “what would happen if H.P. Lovecraft wrote for EC Comics back in the heyday of VHS B-Movie splendor, and it all happened at a Halloween party hosted by John Waters.” Jon became a fan of Blood & Gourd back around the release of the First Issue. Which, the team has posted the first 6 pages to preview online.
The team behind Blood & Gourd are currently funding their 3rd issue on Kickstarter, and at the time of publishing; they’re just over halfway to their goal! Issue #3, titled Blood & Gourd: Children of the Vine promises even more goopy goodness than the previous two installments;
It’s Devil’s Night in Olympia, WA – and out at Henderson Farms, the festivities are reaching a crescendo. Young and old have gathered to pick their own pumpkin, drink hot apple cider, and partake in the usual pumpkin farm fare. However, something has awakened from deep within the fertile soil. After years of abuse and humiliation, the pumpkins are ready…to pick US! You can beg! You can plead! You can scream! But these hell’s lanterns are lit only with the burning desire to: Watch.You. Die
