My Friend Dahmer by Derf Backderf: A graphic novel that is definitely not for kids-- a haunting memoir of growing up with serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

White Horse by Alex Adams: A woman on a quest might not sound scary, but when the backdrop is the end of the world, it it adds some fright.


The Haunting of Hill House
by Shirley Jackson: It may be old, but it's still chilling.

Ghosts Caught on Film: Photographs of the Paranormal by Dr. Melvyn Willin: Photographs of ghosts.

The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman: The hit TV series started as this dark graphic novel.
