What’s to Love: Before Fables, before Once Upon a Time, Clive Barker created a secret city of monsters that live among us. Don't worry if you've never seen the film: Clive Barker and writer Marc Andreyko (Batwoman, Manhunter), along with Piotr Kowalski's gorgeous art (Dark Tower, Sex), have crafted a story for horror fans new and old.What It Is:…
The original publication of Scared Stiff almost created the sub-genre of erotic horror. Never had sex and death been so mesmerizingly entwined. Clive Barker, in his Introduction, says, "One of the delightfully unsettling things about these tales is the way Ramsey's brooding, utterly unique vision renders an act so familiar to us all so fretful, so strange, so chilling. Sex . . . is the perfect stuff for the horror writer, and there can be few artists working in the genre as capable of analyzing and dramatizing [this] as Campbell."
For this edition, Campbell has added three new stories which have never before appeared in book form.
