Hey everyone! Horror comics are becoming more and more frequent in our culture, and the Ghastly Awards are here to recognize, through peer nominations, those who shine the brightest. As a matter of fact, so far this year this entire list of titles (and some self published books) have already come out. Take a look at this amazing list and see what you think should be up for the best of the year so far. Comic Creators, we hope that you will take the time to head over to www.ghastlyawards.com and nominate those who you think are the best so far in your eyes.
Creators, please remember that you can nominate up to 5 times throughout the year, so make your voice heard!

As a Ghastly Award judge, so far this year I am really enjoying quite a few titles. I won’t ramble on and on, but I still thinkĀ Locke & Key is the best book on the selves right now. The way that Joe Hill is crafting this story just floors me. The pencils by Gabe Rodriguez mixed with the colors of Jay Foto’s just make my eyes drool. A mini-series from Marvel that just wrapped up, which I actually enjoyed, was Legion of Monsters. I thought it was a really fun take on this cast of characters. Hopefully we can get some more minis with them in the future. 

Green Wake is a series I have praised from the start. The writing of Kurtis Wiebe has me hooked on calling him writer of the year, and it is only the start of February. When you add in the GORE-Geous artwork of Riley Rossmo, I just can’t get enough. Sad to say that this series is coming to an end in February, because I will be talking about it for years to come.

This list is only going to grow as the year goes on, so Comic Creators, Editors, and Web Comic Creators, please do not hesitate to take a quick second to nominate who you think should be up for a Ghastly Award!
