Fangoria Comics was an American publisher of horror comics, releasing issues solely in the year 2007. It was a distinct unit under the larger Fangoria Entertainment umbrella, which also included Fangoria Magazine, Fangoria TV, and Fangoria Radio.

Planning

Announced at San Diego's Comic-Con International in 2006, Fangoria Comics officially launched in June 2007. Executive Editor Scott Licina touted the line at many conventions, demonstrating that the comics would use a mix of established and original concepts. Several of the books had tie-ins to pre-existing films or franchises, while others are wholly original.

Titles

The first two titles, "BUMP" and "Beneath the Valley of The Rage" debuted in June 2007 and enjoyed strong reviews from sources like Newsarama and Ain't It Cool News. These were followed by "The Fourth Horseman" and "".

"Recluse" was scheduled to debut on October 31st, 2007, and "Shifter" on November 14th. Additionally, a one-shot of "BUMP Hack/Slash", a crossover with the Devil's Due Publishing title, was set for October 31st. None were released.

Closure

Two months and four days after their first title was published, Fangoria Comics was shut down. The blame went to its eleven months of delay and a lack of publicity, both presumably on the part of its parent company, Fangoria Entertainment. "Bump", "Shifter" and "Beneath the Valley of The Rage" all had future issues finished and hope to publish them elsewhere.

The majority of the titles will now be published by The Scream Factory.
