Have you ever wondered what slashers, masked home invaders, mindless unkillable monsters, and serial killers do in between their murderous sprees? Wonder no more! The comic series Where Monsters Lie from writer Kyle Starks (I Hate This Place, Sexcastle) and artist Piotr Kowalski (Nightbreed, Steam Man) reveals a hidden world where these creatures come to relax and pass the time until they get the call to go out and kill again.
The protagonist of the series is Connor Hayes, a special agent who survived his first slasher attack at summer camp. A few years later he barely escapes a psychopath who built torture puzzles for his victims. Ever since then he has been training and preparing for any future confrontations with these monsters. He has become an experienced special agent and now knows where the monsters lie so that he can plan for war.
Where Monsters Lie #1 brings a unique story concept combined with great artwork and writing by Starks & Kowalski. With this series readers will find humor, blood, disgusting scenes, and a unique story unlike anything seen before in comics books. It will leave readers on the edge of their seat as they uncover this hidden community of Wilmhurst along with Connor Hayes as he plans for war against the monsters that have taken refuge there.

Teaming up with artist Kowalski, who in his own right has some amazing work soon to be released with The Karman Line, just makes Where Monsters Lie a must-read. Additionally, the coloring from Vladimir Popov and lettering by Joshua Reed complete the package.
