After stumbling upon a secret organization, two podcasters obsessed with the supernatural find themselves caught up in a horror adventure filled with all the monsters and evil they previously thought to just be stories
Have you ever wondered if you’d survive a horror story? Most horror fans have—it’s hard not to, especially when the genre is filled with characters prone to bad decision-making and protagonists who usually, inexplicably in the modern world, lack any awareness of horror movie tropes or monsters. These thoughts crossed the mind of author, filmmaker, and podcaster Kyle Stück (Give Me to the Waves, Humming Fools) more than once, and eventually in 2019 they resulted in the creation of Evil Cast, a love letter to horror, its conventions, and its fans.
Illustrated by Enrico Orlandi, creator of Dark Horse’s The Flower of the Witch, this indie-comic bathed in blood, bromance, and self-awareness, follows fictional versions of Kyle and his longtime collaborator Noah Baslé (Ominous Media) as they find themselves caught up in a horror adventure filled with all the monsters and evil they previously thought to just be stories.
Whether it’s through the recreation of classic horror movie posters for each issue or the playful tribute and subversion of tropes, this is a must-read for fans of the genre; jokes are sharp, deaths are bloody, and horror easter eggs abound.
