The Scream Factory is an American publisher of horror comics. Most, if not all titles published by The Scream Factory are film-related.



Formally announced on April 7, 2008 speculation to The Scream Factory and its involved parties had been swirling around the internet for some time. Many of the first titles released by The Scream Factory were released or partially released by the short-lived Fangoria Comics which closed in September 2007. Not a traditional publisher, The Scream Factory is said to be "an alliance of film, music, literary and comic book professionals"
