There's a new supernatural horror series on the horizon! From Eisner Award-nominee Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Rock Candy Mountain), artist Artyom Topilin (Ice Cream Man Presents Quarantine Comix Special), and colorist Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class, The Good Asian), F*ck This Place will launch this May. After inheriting a farm house, Trudy and Gabby are ready to start the next chapter of their lives together...except it’s already home to a mysterious force that’s attracted ghosts, aliens, and all kinds of supernatural beings for decades.

Now, Gabby and Trudy must play by the “house rules” in order to survive the most frightening place on Earth. Of the upcoming horror title, Starks says "Comedy and horror are similar beasts. They both rely on tone, set up and pacing. If you enjoyed my comedy works, I think you’ll really love this adventure.” We couldn't agree more. Starks also adds, "If you love the heart of horror – normal people in frightful, dangerous situations – then this is the book for you.”

Topilin really sold us on it by describing it as, "This comic is pretty much everything I love to draw: monsters, gore, creepy woods, cool girls and charismatic bastards.” Same, Artyom. Same.

F*ck This Place #1 (Diamond Code MAR220046) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 from Image/Skybound.
