This week, writer M.L. Miller returns to talk about the conclusion of Gravetrancers from Black Mask Studios.  This has been a trippy and unpredictable read. No character is safe from this insanity. The fourth and final issue of Gravetrancers is due out on July 25th.  
You can find more from M.L. Miller at his official site, MLMillerWrites.com.  He also has his own podcast called Spoiler Alert.
In other news, the first volume of Long Lost from previous guest, Matthew Erman and artist Lisa Sterle is now out in stores.  This collects the first six issues of the series so if you slept on this in single issues, you can pick it up in the trade paperback.  On the Kickstarter front, past guest Mike Garley has returned with more Samurai Slasher. This time it’s a Survive Your Own Adventure book.  That’s right. It’s a horror version of the classic Choose Your Own Adventure series.

This week’s guest is Joseph Oliveira, returning to the show to talk about his new project, Wendigo Wood.  I had first spoken with Joseph over a year ago, early in his comics career. Since then he’s had a few successful Kickstarter campaigns to fund the release of the first two issues of Ghost Island and an anthology called Folk Tales of the Cryptids.  He’s on Kickstarter again to fund the release of the first issue of Wendigo Wood, another comic that gives me a perfect excuse to avoid the outdoors.
Joseph can be found online at AfterLightComics.com.  Sign up for his newsletter to receive a free PDF of Ghost Island #1.  You can also follow him on Twitter at @AfterLightComic.

This week I’ve got something a little different for you.  I speak with Phil Butehorn, another writer just starting out in the horror comics industry.  We compare notes on first projects and processes including getting out ideas, working with creative teams, and pitching.  
Phil also runs the I Love Horror Comics Facebook page.  If you’re a fan of this show, you should definitely go over there and give it a Like.  Phil can also be found at Illuminerdi.com and on Twitter @TheIllumiNerdi.

This week’s guest is Michael Sambrook, one of the minds behind Griff Gristle and the horror anthology comic, Horrere.  Michael is part of a group of creators in the UK steadily pumping out some solid indie comics so I’ve been eager to speak to him.  Unfortunately, this interview gets cut short due to some day job responsibilities. I intend to have Michael back on the show soon along with some of his colleagues from Madius Comics.
Michael will be tabling at Glassgow Comic Con this Saturday, June 30th where he’ll have copies of Horrere #3 available in print for the first time.  This was first released in digital this past Halloween. Horrere is carrying on the tradition of classic horror anthology comics like Tales from the Crypt and Creepy.  
Michael can be found on Twitter at @Rapiaghi.  Follow along with Madius Comics on Twitter at @MadiusComics.  You can find Michael’s work on the Comichaus app, as well as at payhip.com/horrere.

This week, for the first time, I’ve got three guests on the show.  I spoke with Nick Keller, Conor Nolan, and Kelly Fitzpatrick, the writer, artist, and colorist (respectively) of Bedtime Games.  This is an awesome new horror series from Dark Horse Comics set to debut on Wednesday, June 27th. It has a definite Stephen King vibe to it too as the comic follows three kids who head into a tunnel looking for mischief and end up uncovering a horrifying monster.  
Nick can be found at his official website, NickFKeller.com and on Twitter @NickFKeller. Conor can be found at his official website, ConorNolan.com and on Twitter @conor_draws. Kelly can be found on Twitter @wastedwings.  You can follow Kelly’s dog on Instagram at @bostonboyarchie and Conor’s dog at @mayorofpuppytown.

This week’s guest is Michael Stark, the co-writer of Wolverton: Thief of Impossible Objects.  Michael’s journey is pretty interesting as he had originally intended for Wolverton to be a feature film, but producers told him they were only buying IP that was a comic book first...so he made it into a comic.  He used Kickstarter to fund the printing of the first issue of a planned six issue series.
You can learn more about Wolverton at the official site, WolvertonComicBook.com and on Twitter @wolvertoncomic.
In other news, previous guest and prolific horror comics writer Cullen Bunn is on Kickstarter with an original graphic novel called Metro.  It’s co-written by Brian Quinn from Impractical Jokers and illustrated by Walt Flanagan. As a big fan of Tell Em, Steve-Dave, I was all over this.  Cullen Bunn’s involvement certainly didn’t hurt.

This week’s guest is Matthew Summo, the writer of Dedication from the now defunct Double Take Studios.  Matthew’s story is fascinating as he was front and center for the rise and fall of Double Take so I pick his brain about how it all went down.  His work has already been featured in a recent FUBAR anthology.

White Settlers and Splintered director Simeon Halligan brings us another tale of terror when HABIT is released in UK cinemas 29th June.

Based on Stephen McGreagh’s novel and set on the rain-soaked streets of Manchester, the film stars Jessica Barden fresh from the success of Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World, Elliot James Langridge (Northern Soul), William Ash (The Tunnel), Sally Carman (Shameless), Joanne Mitchell (Attack of the Adult Babies) and Roxanne Pallett (Wrong Turn 6).

The film centres on Michael (Langridge) who as a young boy, along with his sister, witnesses the suicide of his mother. Now an adult and trying to find his place in the world, Michael divides his time between the job centre and the pub. A chance meeting with Lee (Barden), an introduction to her Uncle Ian (Ash) and a heavy night on the streets of Manchester, lead to a job working the door at Cloud 9, a seedy massage parlour. After witnessing the violent death of one of the punters, Michael starts having increasingly blood soaked nightmares. Are they flashbacks or fantasies? Little by little, he finds himself being sucked into a dangerous twilight world that he doesn’t understand – but which he finds irresistibly attractive. Addictive even.

This week I’ve got a do-over interview with Jacob Semahn and Jorge Corona, the writer and artist of No. 1 with a Bullet from Image Comics.  You may recall that I spoke with them previously but the audio files were corrupted so the interview got scrapped. They were kind enough to speak with me again now that the series has wrapped up.  No. 1 with a Bullet is a very timely and chilling look at our use of technology and social media. It could not be more relevant.
As a bonus, colorist Jen Hickman also joins in the chat for a bit too, reflecting on her choices for the color scheme of No. 1 with a Bullet.  
The series’ covers were nominated for an Eisner and once you see them you will understand why.  They’re pretty awesome. All six issues of No. 1 with a Bullet along with the six page prologue story will be collected in a trade paperback available at your local comic book shop on Wednesday, June 6th.  
Jacob can be found on Twitter at @SaxonJacob and Jorge can be found on Twitter @jecorona.
In other news, past guest Stephan Franck has returned to Kickstarter to fund the release of the fourth and final volume of his vampire heist comic, Silver.  I was quick to back this campaign because it has been an awesome ride so far. As a special reward, backers at certain levels can receive a slipcase to store all four volumes which will look pretty cool on the book shelf.

This week’s guest is Enrica Jang, the writer of Crossing from Red Stylo Media.  This is a solid and unique ghost story comic. I was blown away by the first issue so I was quick to back her new Kickstarter campaign for the second and third issues.  At the time of this recording, Enrica is halfway to her funding goal with three weeks left. After the campaign meets its budget, the only stretch goals planned are for more comics which is something I really respect.  I think we can all get behind more comics.
You can find Enrica and Red Stylo Media at RedStylo.com as well as Facebook and Twitter.  If you back the Red Stylo Media Patreon, you’ll receive access to the previous anthology titles from the publisher too.
In other news, former guest Pat Shand is back on Kickstarter to fund the release of the original graphic novel Afterglow with artist K. Lynn Smith.  It’s a post-apocalyptic adventure following a girl and her giant mutated cat. I’m so in.
In other other news, I had mentioned some time ago that I was going to make a comic.  That is still happening and is moving forward to some extent. After completing the Comics Experience Intro to Comic Book Writing course (which I highly recommend), I ended up with a five page script that I was really happy with.  I am now working on getting this made. It’s something small, but it’s coming together. I saw the layouts last week and it was amazing. Everyone should make comics because it feels so awesome seeing your words come to life like this.  I’ll keep you guys posted as this develops.

This week’s guest is James Powell, the writer of House of Fear, an all-ages horror anthology comic.  There are three issues of House of Fear out now, each dealing with different horrors, including Lovecraftian creatures, haunted houses, and...snowmen.  I assure you, they’re all pretty creepy, although not scary enough to give your kid nightmares. James has found a nice sweet spot.
Quick note on this episode.  James mentions plans for an upcoming Kickstarter.  Those have changed a bit since the time of this recording, but suffice it to say that there is more House of Fear coming in the near future.  
James was kind enough to set up a special offer for Funny Book Splatter listeners.  If you go to Ten31Publishing.com/Funny-Book-Splatter and sign up for his newsletter, you’ll receive digital copies of all three current House of Fear comics.  I can speak from experience in saying James’ newsletter is pretty solid. Most recently he offered a sneak peek into an upcoming issue so it’s well worth checking out.
More information about House of Fear can be found online at the official website, Ten31Publishing.com, on Twitter @Ten31Publishing, or at Facebook.com/ten31publishing.  
In other news, you may have seen the headlines that Infidel from last week’s guests, Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell is heading to the big screen.  Michael Sugar and TriStar will adapt the series into a film. This is great news for horror fans. As excited as I am to see how Infidel wraps up, I’m just as interested to see how it will look as a movie.  Congrats guys!

This week I’m happy to welcome Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell, the writer and artist of Infidel from Image Comics.  I was really excited to speak with these two as Infidel has been an awesome read so far. It’s easily one of the best horror comics in 2018.  
The first two issues of Infidel are available now and issue #3 drops on Wednesday, May 16th.
Pornsak can be found on Twitter @real_pornsak and Aaron can be found on Twitter @olmancampbell.
In other news, early guest Cody Andrew Sousa has taken to Kickstarter to fund the release of the Croak trade paperback.  This was one of my favorite horror comics of 2016 so you can bet that I was quick to back this campaign.

I’ve got my second return guest this week with Michael R. Martin, the writer of the incredible vampire comic, Blood & Dust.  Michael was one of the first guests on the show, appearing way back in episode #9. Since then, he’s successfully funded the second volume of Blood & Dust on Kickstarter and he’s working on the next volume now.  The book is a crazy new take on the vampire mythos and it is some great stuff.
You can buy both volumes of Blood & Dust at the official site, BloodAndDustComic.com.  If you want to try the comic out first, sign up for Michael’s newsletter at the same site and you’ll get a PDF of the first issue for free.  You can also find Michael online on Facebook at Facebook.com/BloodAndDustComic or on Twitter @BloodAndDust.
In other news, former guest Ryan K. Lindsay has a Kickstarter campaign running for the digital omnibus of Headspace.  The series is a great read and follows a sheriff trapped inside the mind of a killer. The book is over 200 pages with bonus content and you can get it for as low as 5 Australian dollars.  Past guest Joseph Oliveira is also back on Kickstarter to fund the release of Ghost Island #3. This is the series described as Jurassic Park but with ghosts. I’m definitely looking forward to where this comic goes next.

This week’s guests are Dave Scheidt and Scoot McMahon, the creative team behind Wrapped Up from Lion Forge Comics.  I caught up with them briefly during New York Comic Con last year and I’ve been eager to speak to them at length on the show.  Wrapped Up is a super fun, all-ages comic about a mummy kid named Milo and the wacky adventures he gets into involving pizza, vampires, pizza, gorillas, pizza, witches, and did I mention pizza?  
The first volume of Wrapped Up is available at your local comic shop, collecting the first five issues, plus the free Halloween ComicFest story.  It will be available at book stores and Amazon on May 1st. Wrapped Up #6 also dropped this week. While there are some elements that pop up sequentially, this is a comic you can jump into with any issue.  There are tons of laugh-out-loud moments that work for both kids and adults so it’s definitely worth checking out.
Dave can be found online on Twitter at @DaveScheidt.  Scoot can be found on Twitter at @scootcomics.

This week’s guest is Clay Mcleod Chapman, the writer of Lazaretto from BOOM! Studios.  This was hands down, one of the creepiest books I’ve read in the past year. It’s the kind of comic that will have you washing your hands afterward and for good reason.  The series ran for five issues and you may be able to find them at your local comic shop. The trade paperback isn’t out for a bit, but you can definitely pick up digital copies of the single issues on ComiXology or Kindle.  This one comes highly recommended, folks.
Clay can be found online at his official website, ClayMcLeodChapman.com.
In other news, early Funny Book Splatter guest, John Lees is back on Kickstarter with the first volume of Sink from ComixTribe.  This collects the first five issues of the series including some extra material. It’s available in both a softcover and limited edition hardcover.  I backed this thing as soon as I saw it was launched and I strongly urge you to do the same. ComixTribe always overdelivers on their Kickstarters and they have some special giveaways planned for this very short campaign.

This week’s guest is Jen Vaughn, the writer of Goosebumps: Download and Die from IDW Publishing.  I had previously spoken with Chris Fenoglio, the artist of the last Goosebumps series. This one is an entirely new tale and it’s off to a pretty great start.  It’s a fun all-ages story that works for adults and kids alike. If you’ve listened to this show, you’ll know how much of an influence Goosebumps is on an entire generation of horror creators so I’m so excited to see it return and in comic book form.
Jen can be found online on Twitter as @TheJenya.
The first issue of Goosebumps: Download and Die is available now at your local comic shop and digitally through ComiXology and Amazon Kindle.

This week I’ve got my first return guest, Matt Miner.  I had previously spoken with him about his work on Gwar: Orgasmageddon and This Nightmare Kills Fascists.  This time around, Matt’s here to talk about his new slasher comic, Poser, available now from Waxwork Comics.  It’s a unique comic in that it comes with its own soundtrack on vinyl which really adds to the overall experience.  
Poser #1 is currently available exclusively through Waxwork Comics.  The trade paperbacks of Gwar: Orgasmageddon and This Nightmare Kills Fascists are available now.  Both are definitely worthy checking out.

We recorded this on the day the Kickstarter campaign launched. You’ll still have some time to back the project after hearing this.  I backed it myself.

I’ve got a twofer for you this week with Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson, the writers of Come Into Me, debuting on March 14th from Black Mask Studios.  You may also recognize their names from The Dregs, also from Black Mask or Cable from Marvel Comics. Come Into Me is a creepy body horror comic that deals with social media and technology.  I read it a few weeks ago and it’s still haunting me.
Lonnie can be found on Twitter as @Lon_Monster and Zac can be found on Twitter as @ZacBeThompson.  
In other news, former guest of the show Pat Shand has launched a new Kickstarter that you’ll probably be interested in.  It’s called Prison Witch and it’s described as Orange is the New Black meets The Craft. Also on Kickstarter is Transdimensional #3 from former guest Michael Gordon.  I spoke to him back when he launched the first issue so I’m excited to see where this moody sci-fi horror series goes next.
