Keep the scares coming with October's horror comics releases

Contributed by

October is here again, and that means SYFY WIRE is celebrating Halloween all month long! There’s always plenty of spooky stories to explore in every realm of pop culture, and none more so than in the world of comic books!

Comic book companies love to spotlight their most monstrous, most haunting, and most devilish releases during the month of All Hallow’s Eve, and this year is no exception, though every company does it a little bit differently. Some will be launching all-new terrifying titles like Jughead: The Hunger, others will drop ominous anthologies like DC House of Horror, while still others will use covers to chill their readers' bones, like Image's month of Walking Dead homage variants.

There are plenty of brand-new and continuing comic book series to get your fix of frights from this month, and so we've compiled all of the horror, supernatural, monster, and generally scary comics releasing in October from the American comic book industry's biggest publishers. Check out the list below, and stay tuned to SYFY WIRE for features on many of these and other horror comics throughout the month.
