25 February 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

One of my current favorite comic book writers is Matt Fraction, and his Sex Criminals is one of my favorite on-going comic book series of the moment. I once half seriously joked on Twitter that David Fincher should direct the live action adaptation based on a screenplay adaptation from Chuck Palahniuk and John August. Now […]

Exclusive Q&A with Goners’ Jacob Semahn

21 January 2015 11:47 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Many stories start at the beginning, but Goners, a new comic book series from Image Comics, begins at the end… the end of a family tragedy that leaves two people dead and two others hunted by supernatural forces ranging from ferocious phantoms to sharp-beaked Ekeks and many more malevolent monsters.

With issue #4 of this ambitious horror story hitting shelves today, I caught up with Goners co-creator/writer Jacob Semahn in a Q&A feature to discuss the wide-ranging influences (including John F. Kennedy’s assassination and Stephen King’s works) of his series, the often overlooked creatures lurking within the panels of Goners, what lies ahead for characters and readers alike, and much more. We also have a set of preview pages from Goners #4, teasing the carnage brought upon the Massachusetts town of King’s Bluff by a Skin-Walker and his furry friends.
