Frightmare City is a Canadian crime/horror comic book series created by writer AC Turner. It is an anthology series based on "Welcome To Fear City", a long forgotten pamphlet distributed by the New York City Police Department. In the pamphlet, 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. Using "Welcome To Fear City" , as a baseline, AC Turner crafted his own nightmarish version of New York. A city where crimes are perpetrated and punished each in their own horrible way.

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

First issued in 2019 by publisher UCM, the comic is written by AC Turner with art by Fabio Alves (issue No. 1), Toni Doya (issue No. 2) and Marcos Lima (issue No. 3).
