The unlikely couple couldn’t be more ill-paired: Lady Landabella is a naive noblewoman who has yet to understand how the outside world works, Joy is a brutish fighter who hits first and never asks. Will they resolve their differences and become friends, or are they destined to never see eye to eye?
Three Panel Horror: Reanimated by Matthew Garbutt & Anton Kromoff
A collection of short horror comics told in three panels.
As fans of horror and sequential art, we wanted to challenge ourselves to tell great horror moments in as few panels as possible. Thus, Three Panel Horror was born. Originally we were posting these strips over at the Skull Magic Gaming site but thanks to the last two years of global and personal events we realized that these little slices of terror would be fun to collect and put into a art book that fits comfortably on your table, next to your collection of shrunken heads and cursed daggers. So get your hands on high-quality horror created by us and some of our favorite friends. The book is going to contain 60 comic strips, including some never seen before content, along with guest strips by Cullen Bunn, Robert Quinn, and Jacqui Davis.
