This is the comic that won a 2016 Ghastly Award for Best Limited Series and beat out a crop of worthy contenders. We posted the Award winners on our blog on March 3rd. You can view the full list of winners here . . .
Now, small indie publisher Alterna Comics gives us all an opportunity to see for ourselves what it’s all about. The description makes it seem like an ordinary tale, with themes familiar to regular readers of horror comics and film fans, but we expect some surprises along the way.
From the PREVIEWS catalog copy:
“In this pulse-pounding debut issue, a fun camping trip turns awry after three friends are forced deep into the woods.
Lost, afraid, and alone, their worst nightmares come to life.
Printed on nostalgic newsprint with a glossy cover.”
