Klaxon

by

Three unemployed slackers find themselves embroiled in an unusual dispute with their new neighbors: Carole and her weeping mother. When the shabby Carlisle intervenes, he incurs the wrath of their landlord—the silent, grinning embodiment of evil, Mr. Stapleton—and his mute minion son, Craig. As Mr. Stapleton’s malign influence spreads to his housemates, Carlisle takes the fight to his enemy and realizes he must sacrifice his life to save the world. Owing more to William Blake than to Stephen King, this brooding, unnerving, and absurdist graphic novel deliberately shuns the conventional genre of blood and gore in favor of freak falls of licorice candy, cherubim in cowboy suits, and narcotic cavity-wall insulation. Meet the Authors SI SPENCER is a comic book…

The King in Yellow

by

The supernatural stories that make up Robert W. Chambers’s classic piece of weird fiction are tied together by a play that brings madness to all who read it: The King in Yellow. It’s a book that draws readers in with an irresistible yet innocent opening act, then drives them insane with the poisonous words of Act 2. It’s a book that cannot be suppressed, spreading like a disease from city to city, continent to continent. An influence on writers from H. P. Lovecraft to Neil Gaiman, The King in Yellow is one of the most important works of American supernatural fiction. In this dangerously unputdownable graphic-novel adaptation, I. N. J. Culbard brings to life a thrilling tale of horror that will make…
