The first issue of This Comic is Haunted, a new horror anthology from The77 Publications, is now available.
Curated and edited by The77‘s Dave Heeley – creator of “Division’77” and “Silver Jubilee”, this 36-page horror anthology is offered with two incredible covers, one by Ian Stopforth and Alex Ronald, available to buy online here.
The77 team will also be at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Bowness-on-Windermere next weekend and Thought Bubble in Harrogate in November.
The first issue features six stories to entertain and scare you in equal measure, from the twisted minds of Alan Hebden, Catherine Wild, Bambos Georgiou, Jo Heeley and Dave Heeley.
These are beautifully illustrated nightmares from the quills of Mark Marren, Gary Burley, Andrew Richmond, Ian Stopforth, Lee Milmore (2000AD‘s 2022 art stars winner), and will also feature “Short Sharp Shocks”, a wickedly funny tale in each issue by Lew Stringer.
And, if that’s not enough for you, how about an incredible back cover by fan favourite Ade Hughes?
