Czechoslovakia, 1949.  What Evil lurks within the walls of an ancient children's infirmary? After the brutal murder of her parents, Sarah, a young orphan, is about to discover that and much more. Art by Tirso.

 

Cradle of Filth: Maledictus Athenaeum

In the ruined halls of the Maledictus Athenaeum lie occult histories, sealed records, and cursed artifacts – this unholy archive explores the far corners of Cradle Of Filth’s musical legacy, a vast universe of Ageless Vampires, Mythical Creatures and Vengeful Gods.

Mina Murray leads a documentary film crew to uncover the secrets of the mysterious cult by interviewing its enigmatic leader, Robert Renfield.

 

Teether

Dillon Brown thinks he's made a friend with new transfer student Lilly Quist.  But when the grisly remains of local kids appear, he starts to suspect the new girl has something to do with it.  Soon Dillon realizes that an ancient, endless hunger has come to Carol Hill, Indiana in the form of a 10-year-old girl.  He and his classmates now have to stop Lilly's vicious, gore-drenched feast before it’s too late. 

 

Vampire Macabre: Halloween Special

Asylum Press brings you a horrific blood-thirsty collection of all-new vampire tales featuring an international cast of artistic talent. Frank Forte and Edu Menna deliver "Blood Wine" where a con artist dealing in bootlegged vintage wine gets his comeuppance from an elder statesman of the sanguine. Can’t get enough horror?

Thousand Faces

A story of atonement set against a backdrop of nightmares and supernatural forces, Thousand Faces follows a 19th Century doctor from London as he sets off slogging across the heated lonely plains of South Dakota. In a brutal land known to be filled with hostile inhabitants, Quinn must find ways to survive with only “two mules, a rifle, and ten bullets.”


 
Fangs & Foul Play

Richard Bluth, a deserted colonel who left due to his conscience, stumbles upon an abandoned house, finding himself a new town, Bludville. Weary and tired after his long escape, he doesn’t realize he’s about to trade one evil master for another when Fang, a vampiric cat, enthralls him and forces Richard to find him victims. Follow Richard’s plight as he tries to escape Fang’s thrall.


 
Uzumaki

Some of the greatest horror creators transform the mundane into the macabre, and such is the case with Junji Ito. Readers familiar with the world of manga are already familiar with Ito’s subversive magnum opus Uzumaki, but Ito is renowned for bringing horror to stories like Tomie and Gyo as well. Ito builds worlds that are often paranoid, nihilistic, and cruel-hearted, where terror can take any shape.


 
Moon Lake

A mysterious portal into the bizarre and demented. Zombie dinosaurs, a mass-murdering high school cheerleader, and an interdimensional sasquatch trying to save his species from extinction. All created by the lunar radiation in the small town of Moon Lake.
