    Excellent anthology of horror stories from different genres with cool and chilling plot twists

    Horror just seems to work so well in an anthology structure and while there have been a few anthology stories to arrive this spooky season, Dark Horse has released the best of the bunch with Headless Horseman. Of the stories presented here, there isn’t a “stinker” in the bunch, but my favorite my be “Muse” simply thanks to the staggering artwork that is able to create one of the scariest monsters I’ve seen in some time. If you must pick up one Halloween anthology comic this year, this is without a doubt your best bet and here’s hoping that Dark Horse will continue the tradition for many years to come.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    Story 1: Entertainment System – A fun and entertaining short story that beautifully leans into the video game tropes I love. The art is fantastic as well and I would love to see this story expanded and explored more.

    Story 2: Some Wander – A brilliantly fun and engaging short that masterfully builds up its suspense to a satisfying and smile inducing finale. The minimal words also add great tension and terror to the story as well using the art to set every moment.

    Story 3: The Chaperone – A really dark and intense story that has an interesting build up. I liked the black and white art a lot and how it utilizes shades of red.

    Story 4: The Muse – A dark and thoroughly entertaining short story that uses a moment from Stephen King’s “On Writing” that made me laugh. Great art that is visually compelling throughout.

    Story 5: Horror House – I absolutely love good satire and this story nails it. There are some moments that are a little too on the nose, but everything works and I love the visual style of the art a lot.

    The writing style of Horror House is incredible. David and Leah create a world where readers believe that anything is possible, and nothing is safe. The horror and supernatural elements blend seamlessly into the story, making it a compelling read from start to finish.

    While Horror House is the standout story within the pages of the Headless Horseman Annual, the remainder of the stories are worth reading from a stellar lineup of creators such as Angela Slatter (Castle Full of Blackbirds), Lukas Ketner (Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter), Olivia Stephens (Darlin’ and Her Other Names), Phillip Sevy (Tomb Raider, The House), Christie Porter (Count Crowley), Valeria Burzo (Castle Full of Blackbirds), Frank Cvetkovic (The House), and more.
