Comments: "The Groundscreeper" Character created by Steve Niles & Steven Hoveke, written by Steven Hoveke, art by Jon Bogdanove, colors by Ray Dillon and lettering by John J. Hill.
This narrator is illustrated as one backwoods guy who will deliver chills. He introduces the various stories here with a flare that is slightly disturbing.
"The Ghost Maker" Written by Trent Olsen, art by Federico De Luca and letter artist Janice Chiang.
This story starts out building suspense but goes nowhere. The art is good in a old horror style. The story has a couple interesting characters but needed an ending.
"At Sea" Written by Trent Olsen, art by Tone Rodriguez, colors by Sian Mandrake and letter artist Janice Chiang.
Four guys are on a sailing trip. Now one of them gets sick and a impending sense of doom builds. What happens to the one guy well the illustration says it all. This story will bring you to the edge of terror and push you over.
"Bunny Didn't Tell Us" Written by David J. Schow, pencils by Darick Robertson, inks by Richard P. Clark, colors by Diego Rodriguez and letter artist Janice Chiang.
The dark setting in a graveyard at night is sure to bring chills. This is a fun little tale with perfect ending with just the right amount of horror to frighten you. Nice dark ominous art accompanies it as well.
"Some Grub" Written by James Ninness, art by Richard P. Clark, colors and lettering by Ben Glibert.
This tale will have you looking over your shoulder and under your feet. You know what is coming but still your not ready for it. Nice normal art in a not so normal situation.
"Notice To Quit" Written by Duane Swiercynski, art by Richard P. Clark and letter artist Janice Chiang.
A possession is hard to deal with. And being evicted even harder as one poor soul learns. Thinking about what happens here will give you nightmares. Soft art with a dark touch of evil accompanies this story.
"Fortune Broken" Written by Sandy King, art by Leonardo Manco, colors by Mariana Sanzone and letter artist Janice Chiang.
The art will grip you in its intensity. A ring brings luck to those who have it. Only it is all cursed luck. The art though throughout this story is gorgeous in its mysteriousness.
These tales are made to chill and frighten you to the bottom of your soul and they do.

Comments: "The Groundscreeper" Character created by Steve Niles & Steven Hoveke, written by Steven Hoveke, art by Jon Bogdanove and colors by Sian Mandrake.
The Groundscreeper is a big rough looking guy. He is kind of wild and crazy to. He will give you the creeps as he introduces the stores.
"The Awakening" Written by John Carpenter, art by Luis Guaragna and colors by Sian Mandrake.
A Revival Meeting lead by Reverend Jones is your basic scam. Than as can often happen things take a turn down an unexpected road. An unexpected guest comes to church making this meeting different than any other. The art does bring across the characters as you would expect them to look. The scammers are illustrated as just that. Their faces and the writing bring across this fact.
"Where The Heart Was" Written by David J. Schow, art by Darick Robertson and colors by Richard P. Clark.
A three way love triangle leads to murderous intent. Here we learn cheating is never ok and can lead to some unexpected consequences. The art is dark and the horror does creep up on you.
"Bug" Written by Louise Simonson, pencils by Guy Dorian, Sr., inks by Sal Buscema and colors by Ross Campbell.
A trip to a frozen moon turns into so much more. This unfolds like a sci-fi horror story and builds up suspense. The artwork looks amazing illustrating everyone and thing to give you a feeling of being there.
"Indivisible" Written by Joe Harris, art by Greg Scott and colors by Felipe Sobreiro.
Well can a countries people all go insane at the same time? Religion does have a way of taking over people's lives. This story is unclear though whether it is about religious beliefs or race that causes the problems.
"The Captive" Written by Amanda Deibert and art by Cat Staggs.
The is vaguely done. This tale is a twist the helpless girl. The girl here gets more than she bargained for on her date.
"Tricksy Treat" Written by Richard P. Clark and art by Richard P. Clark.
Trick or treating is a horrifying experience when you get both together. Some tricks are worse than others and when they are multiplied the error really starts. Some nice scary art accompanies this story.
"36 Baron Street" Written by Steven Hoveke, art by James Daly and colors by Felipe Sobreiro.
A Halloween scare really does scare just not as planned. Some history is best left alone. The past does belong in the past. At least you will be hoping it stays there.
"A Haunting Grows In Brooklyn" Written by Frank Tieri and art by Trevor Denham.
This is a black and white story that makes no sens. It is only one page long.
"True North" Written by James Ninness, art by Jaime Carrillo, colors by Kinsun Loh and lettering by Ben Glibert.
The art is beautifully colored and is done in an almost photo quality. The story does not fully explain what is going on.
"The Replacement" Written by Duane Swiercynski and art by Richard P. Clark.
The punishment for murder is certainly different here. In its way it does fit. It is far fetched. The art illustrates all the characters as regular people just in a weird situation.
"Visitation Rights" Written by Kealan Patrick Burke and art by Trevor Denham.
This story starts out depressing and takes a strange turn. A man's love for his children knows no bounds. The art is dark and fits the story. The story does have a great punch line.
"Everlasting Peace" Written by Sandy King, art by Jan Duursema and colors by Sian Mandrake.
Three boys investigate an abandoned house. There are ghosts in this house and they do not fool around. The writing delivers a scary tale that will leave you frightened. The art is horrifying in its depiction of these ghosts.
The Groundscreeper adds a nice creepy touch to the comic. He is a scary soul that you would not want to meet late at night.
