SCARED! How to Draw Fantastic Horror Comic Characters is a response to the rise in interest in the horror genre in film, comics, and graphic novels. Readers are given a brief history of horror comics-like EC, Vertigo, and DC Comics-and the influence of legendary horror genre artist Bernie Wrightson, before all manner of horror creatures are unleashed. In-depth step-by-step instructions are provided for drawing such horror subgenres as Bring on the Monsters (werewolves, wolfman, and teenage werewolf); Love at First Bite (vampires, vampire bats, and vampire slayers); Up From the Depths (killer sharks, piranhas, and the swamp and its inhabitants); and Some Things Are Best Left Buried (the crypt, the mummy, and the ancient curse).
