Comic and Horror lovers!!! Listen up!!!
There is this book called IN THE DARK. It’s a comic horror anthology. It’s brilliant and I do not say that lightly. You may notice it’s out through IDW, but it was originally a Kickstarter by the phenomenally talented Rachel Autumn Deering. A rising horror star in the comics community. Rachel put together this magnificent anthology with talent such as Steve Niles, Batman’s Scott Snyder, the brilliant Paul Tobin, Tim Seeley, Ed Brisson, Duane Swierczynski and so many more. This is a massive work of horror art and you’d be ridiculous not to get your hands on it.
You can buy it online, sure. But you can also contact Rachel and buy directly from her. Which is what I highly recommend. Because this was a Kickstarter, she has a ton of copies. Running a successful Kickstarter campaign is not all fun and flowers. It’s extremely difficult and the cost on the creator is insane. If you’re going to order this book (which, have I mentioned already that you REALLY SHOULD?), order it directly from Rachel (drop her a message on FB: https://www.facebook.com/theironrachel).

We only have to wait a week now! Next week I will post the first contest. Get ready for some crazy halloween fun!
Yea. So what if I start preparing for Hallowe’en in August. I still have a bride and groom skeleton set hanging from my window from last year. In my world, everyday is Hallowe’en.
We won’t start any of the festivities until Oct. 1st (whimper heard around the world). But I wanted everyone to be aware that there WILL be festivities. I had to take last year off, but I’ll more than make up for it this year!
I already have some amazing books from extremely generous publishers like Little, Brown, Walker, Quirk Books, and Abrams, lined up for giveaways. Ghosts, skeletons, murderers, maniacs, and good old spooky fun haunt these pages.
There will be contests to win books. And they are difficult contests. They involve writing, and reminiscing, maybe some old Hallowe’en pictures?! There will be plenty of books, thus plenty of creepy contests.
Wait a month and a half…
Happy July! The July Issue of Underneath The Juniper Tree online magazine has dropped and it is gruesome!
Go here to download it. Read it. Love it. Share it. And be inspired by it.
I’ve received a very important and seemingingly dire email from The Creepings of Creeping Hills. D.M. Cunningham has gone missing. (Although I’m not too sure how much I trust the Creepings of Creeping Hills. They are a diabolical bunch.) However, they have found the last known footage of D.M.:
I’ve been asked by the Creepings to post he Halloween Tree animated series, which I think is a brilliant idea. In this animated video, you will see a more cohesive version of what we have been reading over the last 19 days. I hope you take some time this lovely Halloween and enjoy this classic book by the legendary dreamer, Ray Bradbury.
I hope you have enjoyed our crazy Halloween Tree readings, as well as agentbree.worpress.com’s month long Halloween extravaganza! It’s been a blast for all of us to bring this story to life in a somewhat unconventional form.
Go be deliciously evil and spontaneous tonight!
I love you all! Thank you for participating in this very special month!
Guys. I almost couldn’t watch this whole thing. It scared me. Seriously. I’m going to have nightmares. Thanks, D.M.
(The whole “heeelp” thing is the creepiest!)
…and now it’s my turn.
I’m a gem in front of the camera. I never mess up and I definitely don’t giggle when fake blood sprays across the page making it nearly impossible to read the words.
No, I’m a real pro.
**The glasses I’m wearing, which enjoyed a brief resurgence in popularity due to Kanye West, are a shout out to my dear client Kate Grace.
Enjoy the awkward caress of my Halloween Tree reading…
Peter Landau, first drummer for White Zombie and retired contributer to Gene Simmons’ Tongue Magazine (haha, seriously) reads chapter three of The Halloween Tree for us today.
There is something incredibly creepy about the way Peter did this. Boy knows how to get a shudder out of me.
