Comic Crypt: Dark Horse Comics Out February 1 – WHERE MONSTERS LIE #1 / MINOR THREATS #4 / YOUNG HELLBOY: ASSAULT ON CASTLE DEATH #4

WHERE MONSTERS LIE #1
Haven’t you always wondered what slasher monsters–the masked home invasion family, the mindless unkillable monster, the serial killer trapped in a doll–what they do for those couple of years in-between their murder sprees? They’re at Wilmhurst–a gated community in the middle of nowhere where they relax–or try to–until they get the call to go out and kill again.

Connor Hayes survived his first slasher in summer camp. A handful of years later he barely escaped a psychopath who built torture puzzles for his victims. Since then he’s been training and planning for running into these creatures again. He’s a respected special agent, and now he knows where the monsters lie and he’s planning for war.

Betrayed by one of their own and at the mercy of the maniac they set out to kill, the Minor Threats are sent on a suicide mission by the Stickman into the inner sanctum of the Insomniac. See which of our cast of C-list costumed criminals make it out alive (hint: not a lot of them) as the most dangerous night of their lives comes to a nail-biting conclusion!

“Minor Threats is exactly what one would expect from Patton Oswalt–it’s intelligent, funny, and twisted. I’m also worried about him.”-Judd Apatow

About Michael Juvinall (6472 Articles)
I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
