Drowned Rat

Hello there, I’m Dylan! I’m a genderfluid queer artist with a love for vibrant colors mixed with disgusting or unsettling visuals. I like to pull from my dreams and nightmares to create my horror pieces, and this illustration is no different. I have been having a lot of dreams involving rodents and the feeling of wet skin brushing against my own. I made this piece to showcase that uncomfortable feeling.

I can be found on Instagram, Twitter, and Artstation.

“There’s something at the bottom of the stairs..”

There’s something watching, something waiting…

Hi, my name is Mic, a nonbinary freelance illustrator and I’m more interested in dating the monsters underneath my bed than scaring them off. I was super excited to work on this project !

Ox, Ox, Ox

Before leaving, Val’s mother went to her room, kissed her twice on the cheeks, and once on the forehead. Call me if you need something, she said, brushing her daughter’s tight curls with her fingertips, anything. Val groaned. I’m not dying, she argued, but only received more kisses in return. I only broke a couple of bones.

Telling her licensed practical nurse of a mother nothing bad would happen was a herculean feat, and every time Val opened her mouth, she had to hear again all the things that could kill her in the next few hours, from fevers to a cardiac arrest caused by a rare side effect in her medication.

No SMSing unless it’s important! Her mom declared before closing the door, leaving Val alone in their tiny apartment.

Welcome to Recondite Hill

Welcome to the town of Recondite Hill. This small town is home to the bizarre and monstrous things that lurk at the edge of the darkness. The weird and strange that creep into local legend and folklore, warping a location into a mysterious hot spot of ‘what ifs’ and camp fire stories.

GenderTerror had the pleasure of meeting the founders of Recondite Hill and asking them about their project to try and capture the strange happenstance that occur here.

The Curious Interview Involving Natasha and the Ali

Originally starting with Ophiuchus, Natasha Tara Petrović and Ali Leriger de la Plante (as Dream Cake) are bringing their writing and art together for another project. The Curious Mystery Involving Dracula and the Wolfman follows the named characters as they attempt to find Frankenstein’s birthday gift that was stolen during an attempted murder on the Count himself! GenderTerror was able to talk to both Natasha and Ali about the project which is currently on Kickstarter.

GenderTerror: Can you describe The Curious Mystery Involving Dracula and the Wolfman a bit?

Natasha & Ali: The Curious Mystery Involving Dracula and the Wolfman is a short comic based on a short story written by Ali, and adapted to visual format by Natasha. It follows the story of Dracula, who has been stabbed and burgled by an unknown assailant. He, along with Wolfman, must track down the thief, who has stolen the gift for Frakenstein’s birthday the following day. It’s a mystery/comedy with your favourite bloodthirsty monsters.

Two Dead Queers Presents: GUILLOZINE the Interview

Shock. Gore. Sacrilege. And more! GUILLOZINE contains art and stories that dare to push the boundaries. Available both for free online and for physical purchase on Amazon, GUILLOZINE is really a no boundaries zine.

GenderTerror had the good fortune of being able to interview both parts of Two Dead Queers, K.M. Claude and R.E. Hellinger, about not only the zine and the future, but also about their creative process.

GenderTerror: Let’s start off with the obvious, what is Two Dead Queers?

K. M. Claude: You’ve got Two Dead Queers the brand or institution or whatever you want to call this overarching beast and then the zine series Two Dead Queers Present which’re two separate but interrelated, symbiotic entities. Two Dead Queers as a whole is about creating art and stories without shame, without silence, and without censorship, and strives to deliver works by queer horror creatives for anyone and everyone who’s interested — or at least who dares.

R.E. Hellinger: With Two Dead Queers Present, we wanted to be able to offer something we made and enjoyed making for free. It’s a sort of love letter to those who already love Claude’s art and to those who love weird horror. We want people to find our zine and go “hey! This is neat!” and not only get excited for our next zine release or other projects we may be separately working on, but also encourage them to put their own wonderful weirdness out into the world.

Beauty in the Beast: On Lucille

Werewolves are a centuries old monster, representing everything from change to the animalistic tendencies of humans. Werewolves of some sort are seen in almost every culture across the globe. Shape changers are something that has captivated and horrified for years, so how does one create a spin on the time old story?

Coey Kuhn, an artist stationed out of Columbus, Ohio, has managed to not only change a key part of the werewolf lore, but also created a rather loveable monster in the process. Lucille is a short-form comic (available for sale in physical copies or through his Patreon) that follows the titular through the consequences of her attack and subsequent first transformation.

GenderTerror was lucky enough to interview the artist about not only Lucille‘s creation, but the deeper meanings to the work and Lucille’s special attributes.

Hello fellow queer horror enthusiasts! I go by Teensiest on most places around the internet and I’m fascinated with clowns. As a child, clowns were my number one fear. So when I got a little older, I made a couple of clown characters of my own to help me get over that fear. The subject in this piece is a recent addition to my family but they hold a special place in my heart all the same. Body horror is another fascination of mine, so any time I can use a character to explore my more monstrous side, I’m excited.

Mixing cute and creepy is my specialty, so if you’d like to see more of that kind of thing, head on over to my art tumblr or my instagram.

Werewolves Versus: GenderTerror

Werewolves Versus is a semi-annual pay-what-you-want zine that pits werewolves against various themes. So far werewolves have fought against (not always in a literal sense): the 1990s, Romance, Music, Space, and Facism. Each issue has 15 completely new works by various artists, writers, poets, and other content creators exclusively for the zine. Many (but not all) of the creators fall somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum, making this most definitely a queer celebration of werewolves!

While werewolves are always the stars of the piece, each piece has its own unique twist and voice. These differences range from typical horror flair, to comedic undertakings, to downright heart-wrenching moments.

Beyond the Stars

Hello friends, my name is Keetah, I am a Bisexual lady living in Southern PA with my gf and bf (I am polyamorous). The thing that matters a lot to me is love. Without my boyfriend and girlfriend, I would be a very different person with a more miserable life. I often find myself wondering if we could still be happy if something were to happen and we are the last people on Earth.
