The days are becoming just a bit more cooled down and the desire for pumpkin spice increases along with a necessity for horror and slasher themed entertainment. No doubt there’s much in the way of the latter form in the realm of indie comics so let’s just see what’s out there for our reading pleasure, hmm?!
