To celebrate their milestone 100th issue, Rue Morgue commissioned sixteen of the best dark artists, established and up and coming, to each create an original piece that exemplifies a personal nightmare, and tell us why the work haunts them. The results will scare you too. Curated by Gary Pullin, The Nightmare Gallery is their biggest art feature to date and features new works by Chet Zar, Travis Louie, Bob Tyrrell, William Basso, Jason D’Aquino, Simon Marsden, Jason Edmiston, Joshua Hoffine, Nat Jones, Chad Michael Ward, Dan Harding and Kris Kuksi. The Rue Morgue house artists, Ghoulish Gary, Justin Erickson, Vincent Marcone and James Fisher, also contributed their personal nightmare. Rue Morgue’s Black 100 special edition cover features a spot varnish design on a black matte cover. Look for it on stands now.
