David Lapham’s Ferals

FERALS01regularThe werewolf mythology has been around for a long time.  David Lapham took the supernatural tales and created something modern and visceral with his reinvention of the material.  Ferals is a fierce and unforgiving story about a lineage of feral men that hide in plain sight among the population of some northern towns.  But when a country cop gets infected by a she wolf with a secret, it begins a devastating series of events that leads to an all out feral war.

If you ever enjoyed classic werewolf stories and like gut wrenching horror, you owe it to yourself to check out Ferals at your local comic shop, online at Amazon, or digitally at ComiXology:   https://goo.gl/JY844Y

FERALS TP

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:      David Lapham and Gabriel Andrade’s hit horror series FERALS2regularredefines modern werewolf mythology the Avatar way, with violent animal ferocity and gallons of blood! Officer Dale Chesnutt is a lawman with a big, bloody problem. Slaughtered civilians are turning up in the sleepy town of Cypress, and the burden falls on him to end the carnage. But no sooner does he begin his investigation than he finds himself violently drawn to a sexy, mysterious woman€¦ and a vicious creature strikes again at Dale’s own family. Hidden among the faces on Cypress streets, unrecognizable to neighbors and friends, a culture of werewolves dating back a thousand years has found their ancient secrets threatened… and worth tearing their enemies to pieces for.

Garth Ennis’ Crossed Vol 1

CrossedTPBDo you remember where you were on C-Day?  The first Wednesday when the premiere issue of Crossed debuted on comic shelves?  Were you ready for the horror contained within those pages?  Has the misery and terror that have been doled out in the pages of Crossed changed you?

The best fiction causes us to examine our lives and the world around us.  There can be no doubt that Garth Ennis’ Crossed changed the landscape of horror comics forever with its stark and unyielding visions.  Since that time the world of Crossed has grown by leaps and bounds as new creators bring fresh visions of depravity to the rampant Crossed hordes.

Take a moment to step back into the the beginning of a horror phenomena with Crossed Vol 1 TP which is available in comic shops, online at Amazon, and digitally at ComiXology:  https://goo.gl/aVvSkR

CROSSED VOL 1

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:  Garth Ennis has pulled out all the stops to write the most DIG004901_2depraved and twisted book of his career, one that also may be his most poignant human drama! Crossed is Ennis’ horrifically visceral exploration of the pure evil that humans are truly capable of indulging and collected here are all ten heart-stopping chapters. This gut-wrenching vision is brought to vivid (and more than a little disturbing) life by his partner in crime Jacen Burrows. Imagine, for a moment, the worst crimes against humanity. Picture the cruelest affronts to decency. Conjure your darkest nightmares… and then realize it could all be so much worse. When civilization crumbles in one terrifying moment; when people are gleefully breaking into unthinkable acts of violence all around you; when everyone you love has died screaming in agony: What do you do? There is no help. There is no hope. There is no escape. There are only the Crossed.
