It should come as no surprise to listeners of Funny Book Splatter that I love indie comics just as much, if not more than the books coming out of the larger publishers. Between platforms like Kickstarter and Patreon, there are a lot of ways for creators to get their comics out into the world. This week I spoke with a creative team publishing digitally through ComiXology Submit with The House. Writer Phillip Sevy and artist Drew Zucker have created one of the scariest comics I’ve read in recent memory and each issue has really upped the ante. The House follows a group of Allied Soldiers in World War II who find shelter in an ancient and creepy house during a snowstorm only to find that the building is trying to kill them. It’s great atmospheric horror that really builds up over time.
I have a tone that I aim for with every episode of Funny Book Splatter and this conversation with Phillip and Drew is exactly what I’m looking for. It’s a fun chat with two guys that love the horror genre and are making some excellent horror comics. The first four issues of The House are currently available on ComiXology.
I want to give a quick shoutout to Mr. Roberts who gave Funny Book Splatter its first review on iTunes. It was five stars and very much appreciated. As a reminder, reviews and ratings on iTunes help the show tremendously so please be like Mr. Roberts and help spread the word. Thank you again.
