I don't like scary movies, and if we're going to be honest with each other, it's basically because I am a very easily frightened person who does not enjoy being frightened in the slightest. But that said, I can recognize a great premise when I hear one, and Survivors' Club, by Lauren Beukes, Dale Halvorsen, and Ryan Kelly, most definitely has one.

The basic idea is that it follows the survivors of a rash of paranormal attacks with very familiar plots --- poltergeists, killer dolls, and all the other stuff that scared me out of video stores when I was a kid --- that happened back in 1987. As adults, the survivors have been drawn together, and find themselves dealing with all manner of horrors. Now, as the series hits its 8th issue, they're fighting their way through a haunted house and trying to escape without being murdered by the mysterious Mr. Empty. Even though I don't like the scares, I have to admit that it's worth checking out. Catch a preview below!
