Sweet Heart

 

Sweet Heart

Horror (5 Issues); 2/5 issues currently available.

Writer/Creator: Dillon Gilbertson; Penciller/Inker: Francesco Iaquinta; Colorist: Marco Pagnotta; Letterer: Saida Temofonte

It’s no secret that being hunted is a part of everyday life in Ellicott City; the police force, the hospitals, even the school curriculum are designed to make life comfortable for its citizens while being actively stalked by the eerie, insatiable creatures that live among them. “Sweet Heart” is an emotional horror story about a young girl with contempt for her parents’ decision to conceive her into a “feeder family” and must overcome self-loathing and public ridicule in order to save herself, her family, and a town with no interest in being saved.

Grisly, creepy, but nonetheless human—an intriguing start to a new horror mythology.

...fresh and terrifying in how real and natural it feels.

Simply put, Sweet Heart is a great comic that deserves to scare and disquiet a larger audience.
