Become Part of the Eerie Fun with Cemetery Plots (Review)
Welcome to the old graveyard. The ultimate graveyard; where everyone who ever lived and died are now resting. The cemetery’s groundskeeper, D.O. Mann knows where all the bodies are buried and he knows all the stories as to how those bodies got there. Do you have what it takes to explore Cemetery Plots?

Comics veteran Dan Johnson takes the helm in a new horror comics series called Cemetery Plots. Issue #3 just dropped and the series is fantastic. It’s a great mix of modern horror and those old school E.C. horror comics we grew up reading under the covers.
The artwork as does the genres of horror, vary from story to story. There’s a Egyptian mummy love story that spans millennia. A sci-fi tale of robotic terror set in a Judge Dredd type metropolis. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the twists of the tale of two stalkers and the lengths they go through in the age of social media. But I think my favorite tale was one of the most simple horror stories ever told. It was an innovative concept known as the ‘Two Sentence Horror Story.’ I really hope to see more of those in the future!
Speaking of future issues, there’s a great chance for horror fans to get in on the fun. For only $15, you can put a name on one of the tombstones in D.O. Mann’s boneyard! Put your name or a friends name. Maybe an ex or a boss you just can’t stand. I’m trying to get my wife and mother-in-law in on letting us create an entire burial plot composed of our whole family! Wouldn’t that be the ultimate family gift???
If you want to become a part of horror comic history, you’ll need to act fast. Empire Comics Lab hope to have issue #4 coming out in October just in time for Halloween!
If you love horror anthology, you will love Cemetery Plots. It’s got great stories. Eclectic artwork. And it’s got that classic old school horror vibe, too!
Issues #1,2 and 3 are currently available for sale online at the Empire Comics Lab website.
If your LCS doesn’t carry Cemetery Plots, do like Stan Lee told us to do in the old days, and demand they start carrying this spooky new anthology today! And if your really good (and nearby), I hear that some of the talents might even arrange a book signing while there at it!
Wow! What a opportunity for you as a comic book fan to put a personal mark on the industry you love!
