The duo will be joined by colorist Vladimir Popov and letterer Josh Reed for the story, which is set at the Wilmhurst Gated Community — which caters to all sorts of killers, murderers and monsters.
“Piotr and I are so thrilled that word is finally out about Where Monsters Lie,” Starks told The Daily Dead. “We’re extremely excited about this series and for everyone to meet the twisted, terrible monsters of the Wilmhurst Gated Community and what happens when a survivor to their nightmarish murder sprees shows up ready for revenge. Anyone who has ever loved a slasher movie or wanted to see their favorite horror monsters team up are going to love this one!”
Dark Horse shares the gory details on the four-issue miniseries:
Connor Hayes survived his first slasher in summer camp. A handful of years later, he barely escaped a serial killer in an orphanage. Since then he’s been training and planning for when he inevitably runs into these creatures again. He’s a respected special agent. And now he knows where the monsters lie and he’s planning for war.
Starks is the writer (and sometimes artist) of numerous comics, including Old Head, Sexcastle, Rock Candy Mountain and The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton. Kowalski’s artwork has graced such comics projects as The Witcher, Stephen King’s Dark Tower, Razorblades, Bloodbourne and more.
