Strip 1 - Fear

I've been a fan of the Horror Genre for most of my life. For years I've read and have been obsessed with the horrific and weird tales of Algernon, Machen, Howard, Lovecraft, Matheson, and so many others. I grew up watching films like The Evil Dead series, The Haunting (the classic), House on Haunted Hill (the classic), The Last Man On Earth,the Hammer Horror films, the Universal Monster movies, and many, many others. It's safe to say that most of the time I've spent being entertained by one medium or another has been spent with a selection from the Horror Genre. Naturally, I would one day wish to contribute a portion of my creative time giving back.

So, after all these years being entertained by various works in the Horror Genre here it is, my first in a long line of horror comics. Follow the Tenebrous Tales in the coming weeks, posted every Wednesday, to explore the nature of fear and celebrate the horror genre.


To read the comic you can right-click on the image and select "Open In New Tab." This will give you the ability to read it by zooming in using your mouse and/or the Ctrl+Mousewheel options. I apologize for any difficulty reading the strip. I'm working on relocating my comic work to a reader-friendly format on a different site.

Please share the comic with your friends, and feel free to ask questions or make requests using the contact form at the bottom of the page. Also, if you're interested in Tenebrous Tales prints, custom art, t-shirts, or original art, please inquire below. 

Thank you for reading. 


  1. Great introduction, Jonathan! And great points about fear and the unknown. Truthfully, my scariest nightmares are about inanimate objects moving on their own - not enough to make them animate or creature-like, but just slight movements, as if something else, with a completely unnatural purpose. Freaks me out! Anyway, looking forward to seeing what you come up with here :)

  2. Thank you for your continued support, sir. I'm very happy that you enjoyed it.

    I understand that fear. The thoughts of such unseen influences remind me of a Lovecraft tale about creatures invisible to the unaided human eye. Unfortunately, the title escapes me. Drat.

    I hope you and others dig what I've got coming down the lane.
