It’s no secret that I love horror in any and all forms. While watching films takes up a lot of my free time, I do find myself being somewhat successful in keeping up with some of my other hobbies.

There are tons of horror-themed comic books to choose from these days, but it’s always intriguing to me when one of the “big two” gets in on the action. [...]
When you think of horror in comics, Marvel may not be the first publisher that comes to mind.

I’ve been a fan of superheros since before I was a fan of horror. I still have all of my action figures from when I was younger and still have a huge collection of comics, as well. Although Todd Burrows and Christopher Folino’s Sparks is a superhero film, it still has certain elements that any horror fan can appreciate.
Sparks is full of torture, murder, and revenge, which are all things we see in horror films on a daily basis. [...]
