Is today not going as well as planned? Did you sleep through your alarm? Spill coffee on your new shirt? See a ghost?
There’s only one explanation: It’s Friday the 13th.
Nearly as eerie as Halloween, Friday the 13th has us on edge. It only seems right to dig into some of our darker comics on this notoriously unlucky day.
Deep Dark Fears, literally gives us goose bumps. Creator Fran Krause illustrates the irrational fears, dark thoughts and ghost stories submitted by readers around the world. In the spirit of Friday the 13th, we highly recommend you check it out.
If you’re searching for a slightly less shiver-inducing comic, look to Scary Gary. Although Gary the vampire has given up his blood-sucking ways, his assistant, Leopold, is always plotting ways to terrorize the neighborhood, leading to some hair-raising situations.
Buni finds himself battling mafia teddy bears, garden gnomes and zombies. To us, it seems that Friday the 13th is the only date on Buni’s calendar, though he remains blissfully unaware of the dangers in his world.
And then there's Lio. Following the monster-hunting, creature-filled, science-experimenting adventures of a first-grader, this comic strip is almost too cute to be creepy. Almost.
