Joe Hill Talks Comics

Here is the link to his live appearance in NYC on the Comic Book Club Podcast. 

He talks quite a bit on how to write horror that works.  He explains the appeal of how to best scare readers in text and comics.  He compares good horror writing to bad horror movies, and how Locke and Key corrects those problems.

I am thrilled to hear him make many of the same arguments that I have made in the new book about the appeal of horror.

Also, he gives a few story line spoilers, including one that hits at one of the biggest trends in 21st Century horror...no character is safe.

For the record, if you listen you will see that I am not the only one out there who thinks Locke and Key is THE BEST comic series in the world!
