Contrary to popular belief the bloodthirsty killers and terrifying monsters in the world of comics aren’t just confined to horror stories. In fact there are plenty of things that go bump in the night populating every corner of the comic book landscape, even the superhero genre. In celebration of the Halloween season, on this episode we talk about the supervillains and comic book baddies that aren’t just effective antagonists, but are truly frightening, characters who would fit as well in a slasher film as they do in a superhero adventure. Join us as we talk about the characters who keep us up at night, haunt our dreams, and just plain scare the bejesus out of us.
