The increased popularity and influx of quality horror can be contributed to diverse storytelling, spread over dozens of sub-genres, and across multiple mediums, especially comic books! Whether you're an avid horror comic book reader or are looking for a good place to start, I encourage anyone attending Comic-Con in San Diego next week to join me in Room 6DE on Sunday afternoon, where I'll be hosting a Horror Comics panel, with an incredible panel of special guests!

"Calling all Horror Hounds! Join David Dastmalchian (Count Crowley, The Suicide Squad), Leah Kilpatrick (Headless Horseman Halloween Annual), Ben Stenbeck (Koshchei the Deathless, Baltimore: The Plague Ships), Scott Snyder (We Have Demons, Night of the Ghoul, Book of Evil), Rodney Barnes (SHOOK! A Black Horror Anthology, Killadelphia), LySandra Vuong (Covenant) and newcomer Jimmy Stamp (The Beekeeper's Due) as they talk about creating horror comics that keep readers up at night. Moderated by Jonathan James, Daily Dead."

Presented by Dark Horse Comics and Comixology, the panel will will run from 12:30  - 2:00 pm on Sunday, July 23rd in Room 6DE, and I hope to see you there! This will be a great opportunity to hear from some of today's best horror storytellers, learning more about their creative process and thoughts about the genre we all love.
