The Scariest Comic Books of All-Time! – Amnesia

A reader named Chris S. suggested that I devote October to the scariest comic books of all-time, as suggested by you readers out there! Sounds like a plan to me! So all October-long, I’ll be featuring 31 comic book tales of terror, based on YOUR suggestions! So e-mail me at your scary suggestions! Here is an archive of all the comics featured so far!

Reader Jake Y. suggested that I spotlight Al Columbia stories in general, so it occurred to me that I make this a Columbia Day Weekend! From today through Monday, I’ll be featuring three different Al Columbia horror stories. First up is “Amnesia,” from Fantagraphics’ Zero Zero #20 from 1997.


Columbia is a brilliant sequential artist, and he especially knows his way around horror stories. “Amnesia” opens with a fellow suffering from just that. Then things get far more disturbing (click on any page to enlarge it)…

After these pages, the lead character regains his memory and has a whole new appreciation for these ghouls. It leads to a tremendously disturbing finale.

As you can tell, Columbia has an almost film-like ability to tell a story. Really remarkable work.

Check back tomorrow for the next Columbia horror story in our Columbia Day Weekend spotlight!
