THE HYPE: Such lofty words. Such high praise. But almost completely… mostly… true. You see, for over 10 years now, Scott Christian Sava has been creating an epic fantasy graphic novel series for his twin sons (now 10) and putting it online for all to read. For 10 years, he has amassed over 30 million […]
As The Walking Dead and 30 Days of Night have shown, horror comics are a genre that’s oozing with potential for TV and movie adaptations.
