FREE PDF PREVIEW

PREVIEW THE ART OF GUIGNOL

 

Arriving September 2015 (just in time for Halloween!).

We started out with one simple goal: to tell the most original scary story that we could come up with – something that you’d want to read and re-read every Halloween.

GUIGNOL is informed by our lifelong love of things like Neil Gaiman stories, The Twilight Zone, The X-Files, Tales from the Dark Side, The Walking Dead, and Battle Royale. There’s also a twist ending that would make M. Night Shyamalan blush.

We are NOT doing a Kickstarter campaign, but you can PRE-ORDER and get bonus incentives like signed copies, posters, bookmarks, and original artist’s sketches.
