“Five more days ’til Halloween, Halloween, Halloween,
Five more days ’til Halloween, Silver Shamrock!”
Hellbound’s favourite time of year is here and right now we should be coming home from the season London MCM Comic Con, but alas that has not been the case. We’re missing everyone at the comic scene, whether our friends in the industry, or the amazing people, fans, cosplayers, and furries that make the events as fun as they are. Fear not though because Hellbound can be heard on today’s Awesome Comics Podcast discussing all things creepy – check it out as it goes live later today!
Not only are we still chatting horror, we’re making it. Follow our Twitter and Facebook for a horrific COUNTDOWN to Hallowe’en with some previews of upcoming projects. Our second prose release, David Charlesworth’s DEATH HEAD VALLEY II is also coming together for its launch to our kickstarter backers, before making its way on our web store.
We’re also celebrating with our Halloween Hellbound 13 Box which features, you guessed it, thirteen of our titles in one box shipped out, the perfect introduction to the world of Hellbound Media.
This box offers you 13 of our titles for a ridiculously low price, as well as a few extras thrown in as well for anyone wanting to pick one up! The content individually, not including postage, would cost a huge £84, but we’re offering this box at only £40 plus p&p, over HALF PRICE! This Box offer will last until the end of the Halloween weekend or in the unlikely case that we run out of the limited run of bundles.
Note: Whilst we can offer this internationally, due to recent changes in UK, the postage is sadly ridiculous for a big package. We have left the opportunity for it but apologise that it essentially doubles the cost.
So, have a fantastic Halloween, and wherever you are, and whatever the rules allow you to do, keep scary, and keep safe!

“Finally, once again we are delighted announce we’ll be kicking our our 2020 Comic Con circuit with Cheletenham’s True Believers Comic Con. The event will be on Saturday 1st February, and we hope to see you there! If not, you can find us at most MCM Comic Con’s, Wales Comic Con: Telford Takeover, “Something Wicked” Horror Con UK, and more. We can’t wait to share our horrifying visions with you.”
Innocent words from the start of the year! We did indeed attend True Believers, but rather than the first con of the year, it’s looking increasingly likely to also be our last! Alas Covid-19 has struck the country badly, and indeed, hit some of the Hellbound team personally. But we’ve fought on, and whilst we may be delayed we won’t be defeated.
With no Comic Con launch available, we’ve put our latest horror anthology, “Shock Value: Legacy” straight out on our website store for you to pick up. Featuring a range of tales from a wealth of talent, including horror authors C L Raven, “Slaughterhouse Z” artist Paul Johnson, and “Legend of the Spindly Man” artist Lyndon White, among many others!
Not only do we have the three covers of the new book on offer, a special bundle of previous “Shock Value” comics is coming for a limited time. Check out the cover below, and go to our shop to see the two limited edition covers also currently available”! We thank you for your continued support, and hope to meet again at a comic event in the near future!

Happy New Year, from everyone at Hellbound Media! Time flies, and you may have noticed we are following another post wishing a great new year. We’re so busy at Hellbound Media, and whilst we aim to improve our updates, the fact is social media is so much more immediate. So for all the latest form us, be sure to check us out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
2020 is a year of transition in many ways, as we work on completing many on-going projects, and launching into new arenas. As well as comics, our prose and films will also be back into production. Our first feature film, “Clownface” will see its long-awaited release, and our supporters will be getting a host of material to thank them for their patience. We’ll revisit the past of our hugely popular “Mandy the Monster Hunter” series, to collect her early comic adventures, and release a final anthology that will conclude the first phase of her series.
Of course, that won’t be the end as we’re already planning the start of “Mandy the Monster Hunter Season 2”, picking up from the events of “Legend of the Spindly Man”. We’ll also be launching our first kickstarter of the year next week, for the latest volume of our “Shock Value” horror anthology series. “Shock Value: Legacy” will feature stories inspired by classic horror monsters, but with a Hellbound Media twist. We also have the second issue of our popular grindhouse tale “Slaughterhouse Z” to come, new sequel “Slaughterhouse Hospital” to launch, and the long-gestating “Clownface” comic to come.
Finally, once again we are delighted announce we’ll be kicking our our 2020 Comic Con circuit with Cheletenham’s True Believers Comic Con. The event will be on Saturday 1st February, and we hope to see you there! If not, you can find us at most MCM Comic Con’s, Wales Comic Con: Telford Takeover, “Something Wicked” Horror Con UK, and more. We can’t wait to share our horrifying visions with you.

Happy New Year, from everyone at Hellbound Media! The Mince Pies are eaten, Christmas is behind us, we’ve got 10 months until Hallowe’en, and Hellbound Media are gearing up for an epic 2019.
First off, we have a big announcement to make. Hellbound Media are not just Hellbound Comics, and we’ve always stretched ourselves. Our first feature film is completed, with bonus material and a tie-in comic all on their way – especially to our ever-patient Kickstarter backers! We’ve got more films in the pipe line too, but we’re also branching out in another direction to add to the Hellbound Media range – prose! Yes, the original medium of choice for tales of terror, from Stoke, to Poe, to Lovecraft, to King, to Barker, and everyone else. Hellbound Media will be releasing our first prose title in 2019.
Launching our Prose range will be a novella from a new member of the Hellbound Media team. We’re please to announce we’ve teamed up with author Dave Charlesworth to publish the first of a trilogy of novels, “Death Head Valley”. Written in the style of a novelisation of a eighties slasher film, this fun, gore-filled story will get a new, up to date edition from Hellbound Media. So if you love our “Slaughterhouse Farm” series, this might be one for you! Meet Dave himself, in his own words below!
David Charlesworth is a horror author from Liverpool, England. The city most famously known for giving the world Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell and a band that swept the globe with their broad popularity and musical genius… “Dead or Alive”.
He is a born and bred horror fan and was raised on George Romero films, the Friday the 13th Franchise and most terrifyingly of all, the Inspector Gadget cartoon. He studied art and design in school and college until he realised that he couldn’t draw and turned his hand to writing instead. He mostly works within the Splatterpunk subgenre of Horror, writing the slasher series, “Death Head Valley” but he also dabbles with “Cosmic Horror”, despite being warned about the negative effects it can have on ones mental health.
He still lives in Liverpool and says he will never leave. His hobbies are writing, drinking and drinking. Though why you want to know is beyond him. What is this? A dating website?
We’re also delighted to announce that the final issue of “Mandy the Monster Hunter: Legend of the Spindly Man” will be hitting Kickstarter next week. The last part of our hugely successful series will see Mandy attempting to face the Spindly Man for a climatic clash – but will she find a way to defeat a viral story made flesh?
Finally we’re happy to announce we’ll be kicking our our 2019 Comic Con circuit with a return trip to Cheletenham’s True Believers Comic Con. The event will be on Saturday 2nd February, and we hope to see you there! We also will endeavour to keep things more up to date going forward, but please do follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news and sneak previews. Here’s to an amazing, terrifying 2019!
