Comic writer Cullen Bunn known for his horror work on projects such as Harrow County is no stranger to the macabre. So it won’t suprise readers to learn that Bunn is teaming up with artists Danny Luckert (Regression), and Leila Leiz (The Last Book You’ll Ever Read) for Shock Shop, “a brand-new horror anthology flip comic that takes place in a haunted comic book shop, featuring a twisted retailer filled with tales of terror” from Dark Horse.
Two stories will be told across four comic issues with each issue featuring variant covers by a host of horrifyingly talented artists, including Francesco Francavilla, Fábio Moon, Caitlin Yarsky, James Stokoe, James Harren, and Tonci Zonjic. Additionally, colorist Bill Crabtree will be involved as well as letterer Nate Piekos.
Here’s the publishers’ description of the two separate horror stories:
In FAMILIARS: After a painful divorce and custody battle, Trevor rents a house and tries to rebuild his life. Soon, he discovers that his house appears to be “haunted” by more than one spirit: the minions of a long-dead coven of witches. When the creatures begin feeding on Trevor’s feelings of anger and guilt, they lash out at those who draw his ire, whether he wants them to or not.
In SOMETHING IN THE WOODS, IN THE DARK: A husband and wife who are going through a tough time go on a camping trip with a few friends into the deep woods. As they trek further into the forest, they realize that they are being stalked. Something in the woods starts killing the campers–a hideous, inhuman thing that may have more ties to the campers than any of them realize.
