Psychopomp volume 5


Ladies and gentlemen,

Whilst you were otherwise engaged, the world has ended.

Psychopomp Volume 5 arrives with eleven new tales of woe and surprise from regular authors, Simon O’Brien, Jack Buxton and Samuel Shiro, as well as established authors, Mark Bousquet – fresh from his triumphant entry in the recent Psychopunk special – and E.N. de Choudens, author of A Quick Look to an Insane Mind.

Zachary Houle and Gregory Rosa are present from Artifice Comics’ free Bento Box anthology series, as well as Drive88 reveiwer, Karl Volmer, and both new editor Shaun A.J. Hamilton, and new author, Zach Smith.

The approach to this, our largest collection to date, is flippant and playful, a larger-than-life collection of comic book sensibilities and darker meanings. Inside you will find superheroes, the restless undead, an antiquarian monarch and an even older curse, and two distinct sets of exploding intestines.

With one serial drawing soon to a close – Love Amongst Strangers by Jack Buxton – and another just beginning – The Blood is the Life by Samuel Shiro – the fifth volume of Psychopomp promises to be the most explosive (literally) and flippant yet.


Ill at ease 2


Following on from the critical success of “ill at ease” comes volume 2, featuring seven original horror short stories, all of them guaranteed to give you the chills. Joining the original trio of Stephen Bacon, Mark West and Neil Williams this time are Shaun Hamilton, Robert Mammone, Val Walmsley and Sheri White.
