Although American comics are closely associated with superheroes, perhaps to its detriment, the horror genre was actually a staple during its early years. The unconstrained medium of comics flourished when given the opportunity to depict supernatural characters in strange and expressive ways.
Mass hysteria surrounding the influence of comics on young audiences put a dent in the genre's prominence in the medium. However, several notable horror comics have resurrected the tradition in recent decades. Now, in the era where comic-to-film adaptations have saturated the media landscape, these horror comics provide the inspiration for comic book movies that are perfect for the Halloween season.
