SPLATTERGORE: The History of ’90s Horror, Underground and Outlaw Comics
Frank Forte (ADG 800, Asylum Press, Heavy Metal, Cry for Dawn), Tim Vigil (Faust, Gothic Nights, David Quinn (Faust, Dr. Strange), Christie Shinn (Demon Bitch, Personal Monsters, Sepulchre), Joshua Sky (Heavy Metal) discuss the history of 90s horror comics including the late 80s indie scene which led to the 90s black and white boom. Celebrating the release of Faust:Love of The Damned TPB Collection, Tim and David talk about the origins and long publishing history of Faust. Frank talks about Northstar Publications, Grips, Cry for Dawn, Faust, Lady Death, Verotik, Boneyard Press, Twisted Tales, From Beyonde, Taboo, Slow Death, Razor, Vamperotica, Tarot Witch of the Black Rose, NightCry, Marvel's Hellraiser and more. Underground and "Outlaw" horror comics had an effect on the industry as a whole because they were doing huge print runs and there was a rabid fanbase for the genre. Some companies went too far and comics were banned, some stories led to police investigations and charges filed.  It was an interesting time to be reading comics, so come one come all and let's relive it together. Slideshow with images will accompany the talk. More 90s comic creator guests to be announced.
