YOUR FIRST LOOK AT KYLE STARKS AND ARTYOM TOPILIN’S NEW HORROR SERIES I HATE THIS PLACE

“I HATE THIS PLACE is my favourite kind of horror comic. Well-designed creatures, natural writing with some humour, great art, intriguing setting and characters that I really want to live (but probably won’t). By the end of the first issue, I was completely engrossed by this weird world. Can’t wait to read more.” —Michael Walsh, The Silver Coin


Today Image/Skybound unveiled a first look at I Hate This Place #1, the hotly anticipated new supernatural horror series from the superstar team of Kyle Starks (Assassin Nation, The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton), artist Artyom Topilin (Ice Cream Man Presents Quarantine Comix Special), colorist Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class, The Good Asian), and letterer Pat Brosseau (Birthright, Manifest Destiny). After inheriting a farmhouse, 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.
