Split Lip is a horror webcomic that has been written by Sam Costello for the past three years. Every month, new horror anthology style comics are added to the site and Costello has just recently released 'Split Lip : Volume 1', a collection of 11 of those short comics that originally appeared on the website, packaged together in a nice little book. Not only was creator Sam Costello kind enough to offer one of you lucky Freddy In Space readers the opportunity to receive a copy of this 158 page anthology of tales of terror, beautifully drawn by artists from around the world, but he even signed it for you to sweeten the deal! I just got this baby in the mail today and this is one contest prize that I really don't want to part with! I've only read a few of the shorts thus far but i'm really digging it and can't wait to read them all. I'm pretty sure you guys will love this!
Here is the offical synopsis of the collection, from the back cover :
Mysterious old men who peer into the second-floor windows of sleeping children. Corn fields swollen with otherwordly crops. Subterranean colleges where unusual students learn a fearsome craft. A pair of bank robbers stowed away on haunted trains.
You'll find these stories, and other chilling tales, in Split Lip Volume 1.
Split Lip is intellectual horror with strong doses of shock, violence, and unsettling ideas. You won't find vampires or zombies here, just disturbing new takes on horror. Split Lip shreds traditional horror archetypes in favor of creating dark moods, original characters, and frightening experiences.
These stories will leave you disturbed long after you close the book. Discover for yourself why The Horror Blog called Split Lip "the predominant original horror comic work on the internet."
