 WHAT IS BURIAL PLOTS?

BURIAL PLOTS is a collection of TWO comic horror stories illustrated by John de Campos. Lettered by Nolen Strals. Written by Chris LaMartina and Jimmy George.

Inspired by creepy comics like Tales from the Crypt and The Witching Hour, BURIAL PLOTS contains thirty ghastly black & white pages, featuring two macabre adventures. With dread inducing artwork and blood soaked storylines, it's perfect for creeps who like their fear mixed with fun. 

THE GORY STORIES

"BUM WRAP"

Our first grisly tale, BUM WRAP follows a wronged homeless man who discovers an ancient mummy and uses the decrepit creature to seek revenge. It's a real rags-to-riches story. 

"SHAPESHIFTERS"

Our second eerie yarn, SHAPESHIFTERS follows a scrawny recruit's transformation after he joins a gym run by a pack of werewolves. Will this killer workout get him ripped in thirty days?
