Coming up next week from Black Mask Studios, new horror title Gravetrancers takes us deep into psychedelic death-cults and a pair of young people trying to solve a mystery about their biological father.
Previously, we ran an interview with writer Mark L. Miller, but now we’ve got a substantial preview of the new book. Illustrated in a very interesting indie and emotive style by James Whynot, Gravetrancers can teach a thing or two about classic and new modes of horror.
Black Mask says:
On a journey to track down the grave of their estranged father, Maribel and Anthony find their way to the Malort Cemetery, a strange, seemingly abandoned field of mostly unmarked tombs. There they encounter an eccentric clan of grave-robbers who’ve devised a highly-addictive drug made from human remains–and the fresher the corpse, the stronger the dose. What started out as an attempt to reconnect with the past becomes a descent into a psychedelic, neon-colored nightmare, will Maribel and Anthony find their way through the hallucinogens or will they become the next hit?
Here’s our extended look at Gravetrancers #1 arriving in shops on December 13th, 2017:
