Horror master R.L. Stine and Bram Stoker Award-nominated artist Pius Bak (Eat The Rich), along with colorist Francesco Segala (House of Slaughter), ring in the holiday season with a frightful story of holiday fear in STUFF OF NIGHTMARES: SLAY RIDE!
The Nightmare Keeper is back with a new terrifying tale…and this time he wants to get into the spirit of the season with a story of jolly old Saint Nick. But one who decks the halls with holiday horror!
As shopping malls across the country continue to die, a down-and-out former mall Santa, Heinrick Fiddler, turns to madness as his profession has become obsolete. And this year, he’s dead-set on making sure department store shopping isn’t the only thing that’s deceased!
“R.L. Stine has crafted a tale to haunt your nightmares this holiday season,” said editor Sophie Philips-Roberts. “Be sure to not skip Slay Ride on your holiday shopping list, or our demented Santa just might get you!”
“I’m very thrilled to be working together with R. L. Stine and to be bringing some horror for upcoming holiday season with this christmas one-shot of Stuff of Nightmares.” said Bak.
STUFF OF NIGHTMARES: SLAY RIDE #1 has a main cover by Francesco Francavilla (Night of the Ghoul), with variants by Jenny Frison (BRZRKR: Fallen Empire), Miguel Mercado (Go Go Power Rangers), Jae Lee & June Chung (The Dark Tower), and Zu Orzu (Grim).
