Horror comics get their due with the Ghastly Awards

As I’ve often said, I’m a complete and total horror junkie.  The first horror movie I remember seeing was Night of the Living Dead, thanks to a 2-year-old me waking up and wandering downstairs to the sound of my dad fixing the fireplace at 2am.  (Why 2am?  Your guess is as good as mine.)  I’ve been hooked ever since.

I got into comic books not because of the superheroes (not that they aren’t awesome), but because of the creepy-crawly horror issues I’d see every so often at my local bookstore.  Nowadays though, there are tons of good scare on the illustrated page.  So much so in fact , that there’s a new crop of awards to give them their good & proper.  The Ghastly Awards will reveal their first ever list of winners at the end of this month, and I’ve gotta say there are some really amazing professionals and titles getting the nod.  The Walking DeadThe Goon (here’s hoping the movie gets a release)!  Locke & Key!  And my personal favorites, Crossed 3DI, Vampire!  Not to mention Robert Kirkman, Gabriel Rodriguez & Terry Moore!  Read on for a list of the 2011 nominees (and how, if you’re an industry pro, you can send a nomination for the 2012 awards)….
