Its episode 17, and to celebrate our first Halloween Special Vince, Dan and Tony talk to Chris Sides and Chris Travell of Redshift Press about their dark work, including upcoming ghost tale Whispering Sands. We discuss the horror genre in the sequential medium, the difficulties in making something truly scary in comics, our horror 'thresholds', the importance of context and how cinema has influenced todays crop of horror creators (which leads to plenty of nice horror movie chat). Theres some great spooky and horrific books for you to check out, Vince does his best Boris Karloff, Dan begins a reaction video paradox and Tony reveals what he gives any Trick or Treaters who dare to approach his house.
