Comic book publisher Source Point Press will be presenting their next one-shot horror book, Fear Diaries, in shops and online early next year. They’ve provided us with a special four-page preview of the book.
Fear Diaries is about the Boogeyman….or rather, the Boogeylady. The things lurking in our closets and under our beds as children are actually one singular thing — a dark monster that feeds off fear. The story is told from the perspective of the man who comes to work for her, then later rebels against her. Unlike a lot of horror comics, Fear Diaries was written with all ages in mind, by Garret Gunn (Franklin & Ghost, Warcorns) and Artist Nic Touris.
“Fear Diaries was a special project for me, because it was the first time I got to write something that my kids could enjoy,” says Gunn. “Being able to share the story and characters with them as I was developing it was a really awesome way to connect with them through my storytelling. I also got to work with one of my comics BFFs, Nic Touris, who as always, did a spectacular job creating a beautiful and vibrant world.”
When we are young, our parents tell us that there is nothing that goes bump in the night. That the terrifying monsters that live in our bedrooms are figments of our imagination. Our eyes playing tricks on us. They tell us that the Boogeyman doesn’t exist. That there is nothing under our beds or lurking in the shadows of our closets. There is nothing to be afraid of. There’s only one problem. They lied.
