Best Horror Comics To Read This Halloween

From campy 1950s horror anthologies introduced by over-the-top ghoulish hosts to post-apocalyptic zombie stories, there's no shortage of reading material essential to any self-respecting comic book fan's reading list.

With Halloween nearly here, we thought we'd take a look back at some of the most famous horror series out there, and put together a definitive list of the greatest horror comic books that make for great reading this October season.

“The Sandman” by Neil Gaiman

Literally, everything and anything you could ever dream of appearing in a comic book shows up in Gaiman’s incredible series. There are just not enough words to describe how amazing it is.

“Afterlife With Archie” by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla

Afterlife with Archie might be one of the best original projects that Archie Comics has released within the past decade.

“Locke & Key” by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez

This is yet another property that you can also stream on Netflix, but their three seasons are far less interesting and scary as Hill's graphic novels.

“Torso” by Brian Michael Bendis and Marc Andreyko

In essence, Torso is basically David Fincher's Zodiac meets The Untouchables, with a little bit of Alan Moore's comic, From Hell thrown in for good measure.

“Ice Cream Man” by W. Maxwell Prince and Martín Morazzo

It's a comic that will both scare you and have you questioning your life choices —which I guess is a good thing? Well, even if it isn’t, we still highly recommend this comic.

“The Tomb of Dracula”

It's a fascinating series to read, especially given the fact that the series coexists with other Marvel characters like Spider-Man and the X-Men, as well as for its old-school approach to classic horror in a newer, more modern fashion.
