The Simpsons spin some thrillifying chiller-diller horror stories with a little help from some of comicdom's most innovative storytellers. First up, modern masters of horror comics Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Criminal Macabre) and Glenn Fabry (Preacher, Hellblazer) concoct a dread-filled tale of woe, when a freak nuclear accident leads to an onslaught of vampire attacks, and the people of Springfield learn that there is nothing to fear but Nosferatu himself! Ian Boothby and manga artist Nina Matsumoto take a page from the popular Death Note series with a story about an evil book that spells doom for anyone whose name is written into it. Then, independent comic creator and magical realist Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets, Palomar) reinvents one of his favorite cult films, Frankenstein Conquers the World, featuring Homer Simpson as a gluttonously destructive force of nature...so what else is new?
