Lovecraftian Mind-Horror InferNoct Arrives From Scout Comics In October

by Hannah Means Shannon

 

Scout Comics have a new upcoming series in October 2017 that follows in the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft., in seeking out a mystery behind why townsfolk are being “destroyed”. Written by Mina Elwell with art by Eli Powell, the series InferNoct delves deep into the “mind-horror” aspects of pulp traditions.

Main character Sam attempts to uncover the secrets of her town, and she becomes aware of “mind-rending creatures that feed off the sanity of their victims”. She feels that it’s up to her to do something about it, but keeping her grip on reality may be the biggest challenge.

While trying to turn her life around, Sam lives in a tiny country town, working the only job she can find as an unofficial, untrained homecare nurse. However, it soon becomes obvious that her new client was willing to accept an unusual caretaker because this is an unusual job.

Sam begins caring for an old man who won’t sleep, doesn’t talk, and never turns off the lights, but “there’s something else going on in the house at night”.

Buckle up for InferNoct this October from Scout Comics!
