As the nights are getting longer and Halloween draws nearer, what better way to pass an autumn evening than curled up with a creepy collection of classic horror graphic novels.
Britain's legendary horror movie studio Hammer has just published its list of "the 11 greatest horror graphic novels".
While your mileage may vary, this is a very good place to start creating your own reading list of stories that will get under your skin and worm their way into your brain.
Ranging from the manga terror of Uzumaki to Neil Gaiman's sublime Sandman, the list embraces many different styles of storytelling.
