“What do two unemployed municipal animal control specialists do when their city is infested with monsters? They open a facility, “The Pound,” dedicated to the capture and rehabilitation of unregistered monsters.

“THE KEEP” (Graphic Novel)
WRITTEN BY: F. Paul Wilson
ILLUSTRATIONS AND COVERS BY: Matthew Dow Smith.
“The keep had stood empty in the Transylvanian Alps for 500 years. No one knew who built it, or why. But on the eve of WWII, German soldiers move in and awaken something — something hungry — something as merciless as the SS einsatzkommandos accompanying them. Now you can re-live the tale as it was meant to be told (we didn’t mention the 1980s movie directly, but…) as author F. Paul Wilson adapts his own story in this 2011 edition with new cover by Matthew Dow Smith!”

WRITTEN BY: Julian Metter
ILLUSTRATIONS AND COVERS BY: Edison George.
“Is there life after death? People across the globe have been trying to answer this question since the beginning of time. Many have had near death experiences claiming to have seen the light. Some have claimed to arrive at heavens gates. Some claim to have spoken to dead souls below. But no one has ever been able to prove it… until now. Rogue scientist, Professor Alscott, secretly hired by the Vatican, sets out to prove what no one else has. Does heaven and hell really exist? With the help of his four brightest students, Professor Alscott sets out to prove this age old question by putting his students in near death conditions and recording what they see. It works! Until something goes terribly wrong.”

“CURSE OF THE WENDIGO” (Graphic Novel)
WRITTEN BY: Mathieu Missoffe
ILLUSTRATIONS AND COVERS BY: Charlie Adlard
“July 1917. The night air is rent by sentries’ screams. Everyone thinks it’s a trap laid by the enemy, but soon they hear screams from the German lines. Both camps are obliged to declare a truce and send a team of men, French and German, to solve the mystery. With them goes Wohati, a Red-skin, one of the 12,000 Indians in the U.S. Army. And probably the only man who knows what’s out there, lying in wait. Illustrated by Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead), this is the story of a strange phenomenon to strike the French and German trenches. Their only chance: to unite, and survive, the Wendigo!”
