Being a subscriber to Youth in Decline's excellent Frontier series of monographs by artists such as Hellen Jo, Sam Alden, Emily Carroll, and more, doesn't make me any less excited whenever the publisher shares sneak peeks and information about upcoming books.

Q: What major superhero can be most effectively dropped into a horror plot without causing it to stop being horror? -- @KaosExMachina

A: Y'know, I don't wanna make any of the other 215 people who have Asked Chris feel bad or anything, but this is easily one of my favorite questions that I've ever gotten. It's probably obvious by now, but I have a lot of fun thinking about different genre conventions and how they work, and this is the sort of thing that you can play around with forever, and that you can ask your friends and get all sorts of different answers and justifications, something that I actually did while I was getting ready to write this article. But it's also a really difficult one to answer.

It's like you said: When you add superheroes to horror stories, they tend to stop being horror stories.

Like a lot of people, Trevor Henderson has a special affection for the monster movies from the late 1970s and 1980s. But when Henderson illustrates his favorite flicks, he focuses less on the heroes than the horrors, meditating on Videodrome's torso-VCR madness, They Live's gruesome alien invaders, The Thing's poor, infected pooch and Brain Damage's grey matter-sucking parasite...
