"Never ride the subway. Never leave midtown Manhattan. Stay inside after dark - no matter what!"

Frightmare City is a monthly crime-horror hybrid comic from award-winning writer and filmmaker, AC Turner.

Recently, AC discovered "Welcome To Fear City", a long forgotten pamphlet distributed by the NYPD. In it, a Hooded Death's Head warned readers to "Stay away from New York" as authorities grappled with uncontrollable violence that left the city teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.

Reading the pamphlet, AC thought "what if"?

What if "Welcome To Fear City" was actually a thinly veiled warning against something more sinister than conventional crime. Something more evil. Something that even the Police themselves couldn't handle.

With this in mind, AC began crafting his own nightmarish version of New York. A city where crimes are perpetrated and punished each in their own horrible way.

Welcome to Frightmare City. Population... you.


Satisfying and gruesome!  In the same vein as Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt, AC Turner brings us well-written, bone chilling tales of terror that flow from one to the next with a clear cohesiveness.

Five stars for this impressively polished, binge-worthy series.

Reviewer: Will Blosser - Home Grown Horror


I just binge read Frightmare City and wish there was more! AC Turner's vision of New York City riddled with sex, violence, and crime is so up my alley it HURTS! I definitely recommend this series for some fast and fun horror!

Reviewer: Cidnya Silva - Cidnya Reads


Frightmare City is just the right combination of entertainment - a little horror - a little humour. Intriguing stories well told with beautiful artwork. I'm blown away. Highly recommended!

Reviewer: Shannon Sylvia - TV Host: My Horror Story, Paranormal State


AC Turner's New York is a terror filled landscape with flesh-hungry creatures feasting upon the wrong-doing citizens that inhabit it. Its an entertaining, cheeky and horrific world that I'd recommend to any fan of those classic monster comics you devour late at night.
