* French comic Beautiful Darkness is cover-to-cover Nightmare Fuel. It starts as a story about tiny, fairy-like people who suddenly have to leave their home...because their home is the body of a dead girl abandoned in a forest, and she has started to decompose! What follows is [[spoiler: endless cruelty and death as the tiny people try to survive in the forest. Their number dwindles as individuals are dispatched by the inclement surroundings, the wildlife and, worse still, one another. Some deaths and injuries are implied or occur off-panel, but some are very graphic. The worst thing is how nonplussed the tiny people seem to be about the death of their friends and allies, and about the wanton cruelty they commit towards each other.]] Oh, and it's all rendered in a cutesy, watercolour, child-friendly style reminiscent of {{The Moomins}} or ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes.

** "[[http://studygroupcomics.com/main/mark-of-the-bat-by-josh-simmons/ Mark of the Bat]]" might be the darkest take on Batman in all of comics. [[CaptainErsatz The Bat]] has come up with a solution to deal with the criminals in "G----- City" without having to kill them... [[spoiler:a device that ''[[BodyHorror rips their lips off]]''. Which he tests on an innocent homeless main. And then ''picks up the man's severed lips, holds them up to his mouth, and mocks his screams of agony through them''. The ending scene, where The Bat picks at a hole in a wall [[{{Squick}} until his fingernail breaks]], smiling and imagining lipless criminals being sprayed by firemen and groveling on all fours with leashes around their necks, will haunt your dreams.]]

** "Cockbone" was literally inspired by a nightmare Simmons had where [[spoiler:he was peeing in a disgusting, run-down public bathroom, only to look down and [[NauseaFuel his penis has split open, revealing a fishbone-like spine]]]], and it shows. There's a gory killing of a dog on the first page, the aforementioned injury from the nightmare depicted in graphic detail, a city being bombed ("You can see the people poppin' like little ants!"), [[MeaningfulName Bonecock's]] family beating each other to death, his mother getting torn apart by wild dogs... but the ending is the most terrifying part of all. [[spoiler:After finally making it to his "rather deeply sick" aunt's house, Bonecock walks in... only to find it empty. He explores the place, looking for his aunt, when he hears her in the basement, screaming gibberish. Terrified, he tries to leave, only to find the door locked. So he hides, hoping she doesn't find him... and then she does. [[NothingIsScarier The comic ends there.]]]]

*** And the best part? This comic was originally released in a limited run, called "Batman". Imagine picking up something you think is a regular Batman comic, only to get... ''that''.
