Haven't you always wondered what slasher monsters-the masked home invasion family, the mindless unkillable monster, the serial killer trapped in a doll-what they do for those couple of years in-between their murder sprees? They're at Wilmhurst-a gated community in the middle of nowhere where they relax-or try to-until they get the call to go out and kill again.
Connor Hayes survived his first slasher in summer camp. A handful of years later he barely escaped a psychopath who built torture puzzles for his victims. Since then he's been training and planning for running into these creatures again. He's a respected special age more

    Piotr Kowalski brings Starks' script to life with an appropriate level of grit. The monsters are all visually distinctive and the action of the story is well-paced, with even the simple scenes of characters speaking to one another conveying a dark undercurrent of menace. All in all, this is one comic horror fans will want to pick up. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tom Smithyman Dec 16, 2022

    Fans of classic slasher films will find a lot to love in the first issue of this limited series. The normally quiet life of slashers between killing sprees is about to get disrupted. Some strong writing helps to set this quirky story apart from other horror books on the rack. Read Full Review

    All the characters that we meet in this issue are fascinating and the artwork mirrors so much of the slasher-gore for the overall vibe. We dont know much of the backstories (which adds to the mystery of things) but it has opened up the opportunity for so many pathways, that I am excited for. Ms. Zel, as a character, is so engrossing, to the point where I felt sorry for her and forgot that I was reading a slasher comic. I am also eager to know more about our mystery detective and his dark past that links him to our group of misfits. In all, a great start to the series! Read Full Review
