    Default Cosmic or Existential Horror Recommendations

    I've really been on a Lovecraftian and witch related kick lately and wanted some suggestions for series to check out.

    I've read a lot of Hellboy, Wytches, Infidel and I've started Harrow County.
    Pull List:

    Marvel Comics: Black Panther, Captain America, Invaders, Powers of X, House of X, X-Men, New Mutants.
    DC Comics: The Green Lantern, Legion of Super-Heroes: Millenium/Ongoing.

    I would recommend The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but issue #8 came out 2 years ago, so it seems safe to assume that there will never be a #9. That said, it was a great horror / witchcraft series. The same applies to The Black Monday Murders - we've had only one issue since September 2017. It is promised, though, that there will be more, and it's worth waiting for. Rather "tamer", but still interesting, is Black Magick. It's been over a year since issue #11, so don't hold your breath for #12.

    Ah, Sabrina! I watch the show and I've read the first trade of Afterlife With Archie but for some reason o never got around to that one. I'll definitely check that out, and I actually have the two trades of Black Monday Murders but haven't started them yet. I'll give Black Magick a go though. Thanks!

    Have you tried, H.P. Lovecraft?

    There are a couple of manga adaptations that have come out pretty recently. And the art isn't typical manga, but IMO amazing:

    There is At the Mountain of Madness and The Hound and other tales.

    Dark Horse published Children of Lovecraft, but I've never read it, so I dont know how good it is.

    P.Craig Russel's Murder Mysteries and other stories has some lovecraft stories in it, but again I haven't read it so i don't know how good it is.

    And not cosmic, but some other good horror:

    Richard Corben has done some Edgar Allen Poe stuff that is pretty great and Berry Wrightson's Frankenstein is also good.

    Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is also disturbing as hell.

    Rachel Rising too.

    and never read it, but House of Penance looks cool too:

    Edited to add:
    Also Gary Gianni's Call of Cthulu

    I haven't read too much manga, but that artwork is beautiful. I've read AtMoM, and about a billion "reimaginings", but I'll check this out for the art alone.

    Southern Cross from Image was pretty good cosmic horror. It stopped at issue 14 though, mid story. Sadly.

    I was looking at that, but it seems like the follow up to it is insanely expensive.

    Is Neonomicon pretty stand alone, or is Providence required reading as well?

    I've never read Providence or The Courtyard either, but yeah I'd say it's stand alone. However I read it years ago.
