Win a Copy of TFWM

The good folks over at Dreadful Tales have reviewed To Fight With Monsters, the comic book written by Brian Keene and myself and illustrated by Ben Dunn. You can read the full review here, but here’s a blurb:

This story reeks of modern horror in its themes and intense, unbridled sense of… wrongness… if I may use that word. The subject matter at hand is brutal, and so far from what one would automatically thing this little story is about. It is, in fact, about monsters – but who and what the monsters are is left completely to the reader to find out. In fact, I’d say that that there are more monsters present in this than the average reader would admit. It’s just a matter of opinion as to how you would define the word.

As a bonus, the DT guys are giving away free copies of the comic! You can win one by purchasing your very own copy of Winter Kill and sending proof to DT. Supplies are limited, so act fast. For full details, scroll to the bottom of the review.

TFWM: New Cover, Preview

A new cover and six-page preview have been posted for To Fight With Monsters, the one-shot comic I co-wrote with Brian Keene. I just wrote a foreword for the inside front cover this week, and I’m told the book is on its way to printing. You can still preorder, and it should be in your hot little hands very soon.

I dig the new cover. The old one wasn’t bad, but this is a little sharper and cleaner.

And don’t forget, The Pack: Winter Kill digital editions are only $2.99! You can get it in Kindle, Nook, or iBooks formats.
