We here at GNZAP and SLCPLALTPRESS would like to wish you a very SPOOKY Halloween!  We hope your costumes kill it, your fridge is full of beer and all of your trick-or-treaters leave with enough candy that they’ll drive their parents crazy for weeks!



1 Day Till Halloween: Hellboy

Only one day left till Halloween.  So we’re going to give you one last reading recommendation and this one is really important!


Read the comics!  Watch the films!  Cross your fingers for Hellboy 3!


2 Days Till Halloween: The Sixth Gun

I love a good horror western and The Sixth Gun is top notch.  There are six supernatural guns and Rebecca Moncrief inherits one of them from her father that at one time belonged to dead – recently resurrected General Oleander Hume.  The gun allows the owner to see into the past and the future.  The General and his “four horseman” will do anything to get it back including raining blood hell on earth!  Only the gunslinger Drake Sinclair stands in their way…

3 Days Till Halloween: The House Of Mystery

Bethany “Fig” Keele escapes from her burning house and a pair of threatening entities only to find herself in Cain’s (Cain from Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman) missing house, the House Of Mystery.  A place where, when one enters one cannot leave.  Luckily for Fig there’s a full bar and you can pay for your tab by telling a scary story.  Written by Bill Willingham (Fables) and Matthew Sturges (Jack Of Fables) with some of the greatest story tellers and illustrators in comics.

4 Days Till Halloween: The Underwater Welder

Jeff Lemire‘s The Underwater Welder isn’t necessarily a horror story unless you consider it a horror of the heart.  Part ghost story and what Damon Lindelof (LOSTStar TrekPrometheus) calls “The most spectacular episode of The Twilight Zone that was never produced.”  Lemire delivers a very haunting unpredictable story exploring the mystery of a tortured soul.

Jack Joseph an underwater welder is haunted by the disappearance of his father, who 20 years ago on Halloween night walked into the sea and never returned. Jack must reconcile old ghosts or lose a happy life with his loving wife and newborn son.

Alt Press Fest 2012 Returns

For most of us Alt Press Fest 2012 is now buried in the past, however every once in a while something comes back to remind us.  In fact it reminds me of this song.

Anyway, Heather House wrote up this delightful blog entry about her experience back in July.  Check it out here.

Thanks so much.  We are very happy that you had such a great time.

And feel free to relive Alt Press Fest 2012 by visiting our Alt Press Fest tag.

5 Days Till Halloween: Fell

Fell has to be one of the greatest comics I have EVER read in my entire life!  And I really mean that.  Written by Warren Ellis, the story is gritty and Ben Templesmith‘s signature hazy scratchy illustrating style adds a level of depth to the book that makes it extremely disturbing.  I swear somewhere in hell the Devil has Fell sitting on his bookshelf with the pages worn from continuous readings!

Homicide detective Richard Fell is transferred across the bridge to “feral city” Snowtown, a cold dangerous crime ridden slum-hole.  Serial killers, child molesters and protective magic is just another part of life in the city.  Why did Richard Fell get transferred to Snowtown?  Where is Snowtown, really?  Most importantly, who is that creepy Nixon mask wearing nun, eating an ice cream cone?
