by Brendan M. Allen

From writer Zack Keller, with an original story by Dark Horse Comics founder Mike Richardson, and art by Doug Wheatley, Dark Horse Comics’ upcoming graphic novel Creeping takes you on a horrifying journey where fun and mischief take a shocking turn into the ultimate fight for survival. 

‘“Creeping” is sweeping across social media—a dangerous online trend that dares participants to spend the night at a frightening location—from crumbling cemeteries to derelict morgues. As more people join in, the competition increases—who can outdo the latest scary destination? One group of thrill-seekers is determined to find the most terrifying place in the world—and an abandoned medieval fortress-turned-asylum fits the bill, but they soon realize they are in for more than they bargained for.’

“I caught the end of a news clip about college kids staying overnight in an abandoned house and that got me thinking about a new story—a fad in which people sought out the scariest places to camp while live-streaming themselves,” says Richardson. “The fad, ‘Creeping,’ turns into a competition as each group seeks to outdo the last. What could be more frightening than an abandoned asylum avoided by locals for 100 years? Of course, this location has a secret…”

The trade paperback of Creeping will be in comic shops on October 13, 2021 and in book stores on October 26, 2021.
