” … horrific and hilarious all at once… ” — Gatecrashers

“Champion Mojo Storyteller” Joe R. Lansdale (Hap & Leonard, Bubba Ho Tep) and his daughter, author/country singer Kasey Lansdale (Creepshow, Impossible Monsters), join forces with award-winning artist Daniele Serra (Hellraiser, The Crow) and colorist Tom Napolitano (Batman/Spawn, We Have Demons) to bring you Dana and Jana-the new dynamic duo of supernatural– er, supernormal sleuthing!

Dana Roberts, seasoned investigator of the supernormal, is called to Italy by an ex-lover to investigate a strange phenomenon– the mystery of a bleeding wall. Due to an odd experience of her own, Jana Davis attends a book signing event focused on strange occurrences. The twosome meet, team up and together head to Italy in search of answers.

Are they dealing with a haunted house? A demon perhaps? Or a vengeful specter from the other side? Dana has battled angry jinns, malevolent shadows, ancient travelers, and soul-sucking shapeshifters, but in The Case of the Bleeding Wall, she and her new sidekick, Jana, will face their most dangerous challenge yet.

” Atmosphere, intrigue and an inherent looming danger The Case of the Bleeding Wall has it all… ” — Jonathan Chance, Cover The Dead With Lime

“Don’t be fooled: Doing horror in comics is hard. But Joe and Kasey Lansdale make it look effortless as they weave a brilliant and compelling ghost story with emotional heft. And the art by Danielle Serra and Tom Napolitano is as haunting as the tale itself — which is really saying something. Read this one with the lights on.”—Marc Guggenheim, Emmy Award–winning writer & author of In Any Lifetime

“If Edgar Allen Poe and Buffy the Vampire Slayer had a baby, this would be it. Anyone who enjoys monsters, ghosts, and magick should pick up this latest Lansdale tale!”—B.Earl, author of Deadly Neighborhood Spider-Man and Daredevil & Echo

“A compellingly scripted, aptly illustrated, and original story…Highly recommended.” —Midwest Book Review

About the creators: 

Kasey Lansdale is the author of several short stories & novellas from Harper Collins, Titan Books, & others. Her collection, TERROR IS OUR BUSINESS, co-written with her father, was lauded by Publisher’s Weekly as “storytelling that delightfully takes on a lighter and sharper edge.” Lansdale is the editor of assorted anthology collections and her collaboration, THE COMPANION was adapted for the 2019 TV remake of Shudder TV’s, CREEPSHOW. Lansdale’s voice can be heard on numerous audio and VO productions including Stan Lee’s REFLECTIONS, George R.R. Martin’s ACES ABROAD.

Joe R. Lansdale is the internationally bestselling author of more than fifty novels, including the popular, long-running Hap and Leonard series. Many of his cult classics have been adapted for television and film, most famously the films Bubba Ho-Tep and Cold in July and the Hap and Leonard series on Sundance TV and Netflix. Lansdale has written numerous screenplays and teleplays and has won the Edgar Award, ten Stoker Awards, and too many others to list. He has also been designated a World Horror Grandmaster. Lansdale and his wife Karen live in East Texas, like many of the characters he writes about.

Daniele Serra is an Italian illustrator. Three-time winner of the British Fantasy Award as Best Artist (2012, 2017 & 2021) and finalist at the World Fantasy Award 2021, his work includes covers, internal illustrations and comic adaptations for such highly esteemed authors as Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell, Joe R. Lansdale and Joyce Carol Oates.
His main influences and inspiration come from the world of weird and horror literature from H.P. Lovecraft and William H. Hodgson, Ridley Scott’s films, Japanese horror and the works of Clive Barker.
Through his keen fascination with horror fiction, dating back to before his career started, he soon established his own distinctive style. Playing on striking contrasts between bright colours and darker tones, his work blends curves and shadows to create deeply atmospheric artworks, for the most part using watercolours, as well as Indian ink and charcoal.
As a comic artist he has worked with DC Comics (Pray for death, by Nicholas Doan), Image Comics (Fade to Black by Jeff Mariotte), BOOM! Studios (Clive Barker’s Hellraiser: Bestiary, Vv.Aa.) , Titan Comics (Dark Souls Vv.Aa.), Seraphim INC (Clive Barker’s Hellraiser Anthology Vol. 1-2, Vv.Aa.), SST Publications (I tell you, it’s love, also in Italian for BD Comics under the title Fidati è amore, based on a story by Joe R. Lansdale), Mondadori (Murder Ballads, by Micol Beltramini), Bonelli (Gentleman’s Hotel based on a story by Joe R. Lansdale). He was behind the artwork for all three volumes of Stephen King’s Tommyknockers (PS Publishing). Daniele’s own art book was published by PS Publishing, with an interface by Clive Barker.
He has illustrated more than 300 novel covers released by labels all around the world. Amongst these, certain collaborations stand out, including those with Clive Barker, J. R. Lansdale, Paul Tremblay, Gwendolyn Kiste, Tim Lebbon, Josh Malerman, Stephen Graham Jones and publishers such as PS Publishing, Thunderstorm Books, Dark Region Press, SST Publishing, Cemetery Dance, Buchheim Verlag, Raw Dog Screaming Press, Season of Mist, Fanucci, Solferino, Corbaccio e Sperling and Kupfer.
His work was also used for the scenography of the film adaptation of “Cell” by Stephen King, directed by Tod Williams and starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. He also provided the illustrations for the opening and closing credits for Yoshiki Takahashi’s film, Rageaholic (Kokuei Company).
A musician with a keen interest in music in general, he has also worked on a number of album covers and sleeve designs for bands such as Shining (IX, Season of Mist), :wumpscut: (Madman- Szpital Box, Beton Kopf Media), So Hideous (Laurestine, Prosthetic Records) e Hapax (Exile, Swiss Dark NIghts).
Daniele lives on a Mediterranean island, in his house-studio with his wife, his cats, various exotic insects and a vast collection of horror movies and books.

Tom Napolitano’s balloons and onomatopoeias have appeared in many comics since 2015 for publisher such as DC, Comixology Originals, Dark Horse, Dynamite, Humanoids, Valiant, and Image on titles like Batman: Last Knight on Earth, Wonder Woman Evolution, We Have Demons, Kaya, The Closet and so many more. He’s also appeared as a colorist for Tales of the Nightwatchman and back-up stories in Image’s Savage Dragon.

AMERICAN NARCISSUS by Chandler Morrison out now!

AMERICAN NARCISSUS by Chandler Morrison out now!

The American dream is dead, and Los Angeles is burning. Stoned and porn-addicted surfer Baxter Kent is terrified of women and anxious to make things work with a sex robot. Acid junkie Arden Coover has a useless philosophy degree and a doomed relationship he believes might save him. His younger sister Tess is considering, or resisting, a convenient but loveless marriage to a wealthy, narcissistic novelist. Ryland Richter, an alcoholic insurance executive with too much money and too few scruples, is seeking toxic solace in the arms of a dangerously unhinged subordinate. As wildfires rage, this lost and hopeless cast makes their way through the embers of Los Angeles and beyond in a desperate search for meaning and connection in a world without a future. Chandler Morrison’s latest satire explores our search for love in all the wrong places, and what happens when we think we find it.

“When I wasn’t reading this book, I wanted to be. I need stories like this from Morrison until the end of time.” –Sadie Hartmann, author of 101 Horror Books to Read Before You’re Murdered

“A master of iconoclastic satire and deftly turned plot points, American Narcissus showcases author Chandler Morrison’s genuine flair for originality and the kind of narrative storytelling style that keeps and holds the reader’s rapt attention from start to finish.” — Midwest Book Review

American Narcissus is Morrison at his scathing, satirical best…A darkly comic search through the spiritual decay of LA–and our modern age–where there may be no soul to find at all.” —Ryan Harding, Splatterpunk award-winning author of Transcendental Mutilation

American Narcissus is a beautiful tragedy in which Morrison’s unrelenting voice shines through…This is the book he was meant to write.” —Autumn Christian, author of Girl Like a Bomb

“Chandler Morrison is of the most visceral and uncompromising writers of his generation, and Dead Inside is a nightmarish, unforgettable work of fiction.” —Donald Ray Pollock, author of The Devil All the Time

“No blurb will be able to fully convey how great this book is. Chandler Morrison’s voice is unique, stylish and powerful. Required reading for fans of Brett Easton Ellis, Tom Piccirilli or Chuck Palahniuk.” —Brian Keene, Author of The Rising, Ghoul

“Exquisite in its bleakness and compulsively readable, American Narcissus will speak to anyone who has ever freewheeled towards oblivion, chosen toxicity as a mode of comfort, or sought love and meaning from the worst possible source.” —HLR, author of History of Present Complaint and EX-CETERA

“It’s very difficult to describe a Chandler Morrison novel–you kind of have to experience them for yourself to get what he’s doing–but it is quite easy to say that this is one of the most entertaining, thoughtful, and just plain weird novels you’re likely to read this year.”–Booklist

“With American Narcissus, Chandler Morrison once again shows us why he’s one of the best contemporary LA novelists and chroniclers of our disconnected, disaffected modern existence. No amount of wealth, fame, drugs, or sex can fill the emptiness at the cores of Morrison’s gorgeous yet emotionally stunted cast. A timely meditation on the horror of having it all.”–Brian Asman, author of Man, Fuck This House

About the Author
Chandler Morrison is the author of seven previous books, including #thighgap and Dead Inside. His short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies and literary journals. He lives in Los Angeles.

Daniele Serra is an Italian illustrator. Three-time winner of the British Fantasy Award as Best Artist (2012, 2017 & 2021) and finalist at the World Fantasy Award 2021, his work includes covers, internal illustrations and comic adaptations for such highly esteemed authors as Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell, Joe R. Lansdale and Joyce Carol Oates.
His main influences and inspiration come from the world of weird and horror literature from H.P. Lovecraft and William H. Hodgson, Ridley Scott’s films, Japanese horror and the works of Clive Barker.
Through his keen fascination with horror fiction, dating back to before his career started, he soon established his own distinctive style. Playing on striking contrasts between bright colours and darker tones, his work blends curves and shadows to create deeply atmospheric artworks, for the most part using watercolours, as well as Indian ink and charcoal.
As a comic artist he has worked with DC Comics (Pray for death, by Nicholas Doan), Image Comics (Fade to Black by Jeff Mariotte), BOOM! Studios (Clive Barker’s Hellraiser: Bestiary, Vv.Aa.) , Titan Comics (Dark Souls Vv.Aa.), Seraphim INC (Clive Barker’s Hellraiser Anthology Vol. 1-2, Vv.Aa.), SST Publications (I tell you, it’s love, also in Italian for BD Comics under the title Fidati è amore, based on a story by Joe R. Lansdale), Mondadori (Murder Ballads, by Micol Beltramini), Bonelli (Gentleman’s Hotel based on a story by Joe R. Lansdale). He was behind the artwork for all three volumes of Stephen King’s Tommyknockers (PS Publishing). Daniele’s own art book was published by PS Publishing, with an interface by Clive Barker.
He has illustrated more than 300 novel covers released by labels all around the world. Amongst these, certain collaborations stand out, including those with Clive Barker, J. R. Lansdale, Paul Tremblay, Gwendolyn Kiste, Tim Lebbon, Josh Malerman, Stephen Graham Jones and publishers such as PS Publishing, Thunderstorm Books, Dark Region Press, SST Publishing, Cemetery Dance, Buchheim Verlag, Raw Dog Screaming Press, Season of Mist, Fanucci, Solferino, Corbaccio e Sperling and Kupfer.
His work was also used for the scenography of the film adaptation of “Cell” by Stephen King, directed by Tod Williams and starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. He also provided the illustrations for the opening and closing credits for Yoshiki Takahashi’s film, Rageaholic (Kokuei Company).
A musician with a keen interest in music in general, he has also worked on a number of album covers and sleeve designs for bands such as Shining (IX, Season of Mist), :wumpscut: (Madman- Szpital Box, Beton Kopf Media), So Hideous (Laurestine, Prosthetic Records) e Hapax (Exile, Swiss Dark NIghts).
