062: Clay Mcleod Chapman

April 13, 2018

This week’s guest is Clay Mcleod Chapman, the writer of Lazaretto from BOOM! Studios.  This was hands down, one of the creepiest books I’ve read in the past year. It’s the kind of comic that will have you washing your hands afterward and for good reason.  The series ran for five issues and you may be able to find them at your local comic shop. The trade paperback isn’t out for a bit, but you can definitely pick up digital copies of the single issues on ComiXology or Kindle.  This one comes highly recommended, folks.

Clay can be found online at his official website, ClayMcLeodChapman.com.

In other news, early Funny Book Splatter guest, John Lees is back on Kickstarter with the first volume of Sink from ComixTribe.  This collects the first five issues of the series including some extra material. It’s available in both a softcover and limited edition hardcover.  I backed this thing as soon as I saw it was launched and I strongly urge you to do the same. ComixTribe always overdelivers on their Kickstarters and they have some special giveaways planned for this very short campaign.

060: Jen Vaughn

March 30, 2018

This week’s guest is Jen Vaughn, the writer of Goosebumps: Download and Die from IDW Publishing.  I had previously spoken with Chris Fenoglio, the artist of the last Goosebumps series. This one is an entirely new tale and it’s off to a pretty great start.  It’s a fun all-ages story that works for adults and kids alike. If you’ve listened to this show, you’ll know how much of an influence Goosebumps is on an entire generation of horror creators so I’m so excited to see it return and in comic book form.

Jen can be found online on Twitter as @TheJenya.

The first issue of Goosebumps: Download and Die is available now at your local comic shop and digitally through ComiXology and Amazon Kindle.

059: Matt Miner #2

March 23, 2018

This week I’ve got my first return guest, Matt Miner.  I had previously spoken with him about his work on Gwar: Orgasmageddon and This Nightmare Kills Fascists.  This time around, Matt’s here to talk about his new slasher comic, Poser, available now from Waxwork Comics.  It’s a unique comic in that it comes with its own soundtrack on vinyl which really adds to the overall experience.  

Poser #1 is currently available exclusively through Waxwork Comics.  The trade paperbacks of Gwar: Orgasmageddon and This Nightmare Kills Fascists are available now.  Both are definitely worthy checking out.

Matt can be found online on Twitter at @MattMinerXVX.

March 16, 2018

This week’s guest is writer / artist, Nevin Arnold, the creator of Monsterella.  Nevin is currently using Kickstarter to fund the release of the second issue of Monsterella, an anthology comic in the vein of classic Vampirella and 2000 AD.  He’s already far surpassed his funding goal and he’s plowing through stretch goals.

We recorded this on the day the Kickstarter campaign launched. You’ll still have some time to back the project after hearing this.  I backed it myself.

057: Lonnie Nadler & Zac Thompson

March 9, 2018

I’ve got a twofer for you this week with Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson, the writers of Come Into Me, debuting on March 14th from Black Mask Studios.  You may also recognize their names from The Dregs, also from Black Mask or Cable from Marvel Comics. Come Into Me is a creepy body horror comic that deals with social media and technology.  I read it a few weeks ago and it’s still haunting me.

Lonnie can be found on Twitter as @Lon_Monster and Zac can be found on Twitter as @ZacBeThompson.  

In other news, former guest of the show Pat Shand has launched a new Kickstarter that you’ll probably be interested in.  It’s called Prison Witch and it’s described as Orange is the New Black meets The Craft. Also on Kickstarter is Transdimensional #3 from former guest Michael Gordon.  I spoke to him back when he launched the first issue so I’m excited to see where this moody sci-fi horror series goes next.

056: Josh Finney

March 2, 2018

This week’s guest is Josh Finney, the writer of Casefile: Arkham.  If that title sounds familiar, it might be because I’ve previously spoken with Patrick McEvoy, the artist of the series way back in episode 20.  Casefile: Arkham is a series of original graphic novels blending Lovecraftian monsters with pulp detective stories.  The second, Her Blood Runs Cold, is set for release on March 5th.  I’ve read and reviewed both of them after backing the Kickstarter campaigns and really dug them.

Josh definitely knows his stuff and shows a deep knowledge of horror and the detective genre.  He did his homework for this project and it shows.  I hope to see more stories in this world soon.  Josh can be found online at his official site JIshiroFinney.com.

054: Chris Fenoglio

February 16, 2018

This week’s guest is Chris Fenoglio, the artist of Goosebumps: Monsters at Midnight from IDW Publishing.  If you’ve listened to more than one episode of Funny Book Splatter, you’ll know how much of an influence Goosebumps was on the current generation of horror comics creators.  This series is pretty great and captures that flare that made the original young adult novels so great.  

You can pick up all three issues of Goosebumps: Monsters at Midnight at your local comic shop or digitally through ComiXology and Amazon Kindle.  The trade paperback collection is scheduled for release on March 28th.  Chris can be found online on Twitter and Instagram as @ChrisFenoglio.

In Kickstarter news, past guest, Joseph Oliveira just launched a campaign for a new anthology comic called Folk Tales of the Cryptids.  I got an advanced look at it and it’s pretty creepy stuff so definitely check it out.  

In other news, my other podcast, Raging Nerdon has returned from a brief hiatus.  Join me and co-host BJ Boothe as we talk about the latest comic book movie trailers and Stan Lee’s genitals.  Check it out wherever you get your podcasts.

053: Will Allred

February 9, 2018

This week’s guest is Will Allred, the writer of the vampire comic, Diary of Night.  Will is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of the first volume of the book.  It’s got an interesting take on the vampire mythos, grounding it in the present day.  He’s also added some fun backmatter that shows the character’s journey throughout history.  I’ve backed the campaign myself and I encourage you to do the same.

If you want to try out Diary of Night before backing the Kickstarter campaign, you can read the first issue for free by signing up for Will’s newsletter at DiaryOfNight.com or WillAllred.com.  Will can also be found online on Twitter as @wallred.  You can follow along with Diary of Night at Facebook.com/DiaryOfNight.

In other news, I’ve been catching up with a few Loot Crate unboxing videos on HorrorTalk.  Be sure to check them out under the HorrorTalk TV banner on the site or on our YouTube channel.  I do these with my kids and half of the video is spent trying to wrangle them in.  They’re always a lot of fun.
