Women of Marvel Peruses the Pages of Marvel's Horror Comics

Savvy spirits from Marvel's publishing department join the frightening fun!

Women of Marvel Horror Comics

It's the most terrifying time of the year, and Women of Marvel knows that horror fans are looking for something to read! On the latest episode, Ellie Pyle welcomes Marvel associate editor Sarah Brunstad and assistant editor Lauren Amaro to discuss some of the scariest Marvel Comics of all time -- including some recent offerings that are available to read today!

Here's some of their conversation:

Amaro: "It’s so interesting to see our fears examined and externalized, and made both familiar and different so you can sort of come at it in a new way. And I think your understanding of it, and even your reaction to it, changes and shifts, and you get to, again, be scared without actually having to be in that situation. And there’s something cathartic about that.”

Brunstad: “I go through a stage every October because Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I try to soak up as much as I can. And I love the traditional feeling of why we do it around that time of year—that we’re losing light, we’re going into a time of darkness and interiority, and so it makes sense to indulge those kind of darker urges.”
