Horror Books & Graphic Novels To Look Out For!

book Cover art for Devils Kill Devils

Bram Stoker Award nominee and critically acclaimed Black horror writer Johnny Compton returns with his eagerly anticipated sophomore novel Devils Kill Devils (on-sale Sep. 24, 2024) where monsters walk among us and in their wake lay shredded limbs, vengeful ambitions, and age-old prophecies edging ever-closer to reality. A Southern gothic horror set in the sticky Texas heat, Devils Kill Devils follows one brave woman in her pulse-pounding race against the hordes of hell.

Compton’s Devils Kill Devils is infused with the dark corners and breathless urgency of Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Certain Dark Things. Through the steeled, steady courage of Sarita Bardales, this layered and terrifying tale reveals the blurred lines between angels and demons—and the pain of being caught in their crossfire.

Book cover for The Queen by Nick Cutter

Bestselling and #HorrorBookTok-favorite author Nick Cutter, THE QUEEN (on sale October 2) is a creeping, crawling horror that follows a young woman searching for answers around her friend’s disappearance and uncovering secrets beyond her wildest nightmares along the way.

When Margaret Carpenter’s best friend, Charity Atwater, goes missing after a party, she believes her to be dead until an iPhone appears at her doorstep pinging with texts and clues from the missing girl. In a twisted scavenger hunt over one feverish day, Margaret follows Charity’s increasingly frantic breadcrumbs through their high school, under the city, and into the orbit of Rudyard Crate—a terrifying tech titan dedicating his billions to depraved gene-mutation experiments.

The Strange Tales of Oscar Zahn: Volume One 

This fall, Ten Speed Graphic will launch a supernatural mystery series by acclaimed comics creator Tri Vuong: The Strange Tales of Oscar Zahn: Volume One (on sale September 10th, 2024).

He’s still got a heart of gold! The Strange Tales of Oscar Zahn: Volume One introduces readers to Oscar and his mysterious assistant Agnes as they embark on a frightening yet heartwarming journey across ethereal realms, rescuing lost souls and solving creepy mysteries.
