    Bring the Comic to Life!

    With this subscription package, immerse yourself in mystery when 6 separate items arrive by mail to expand the story and make it seem as if monsters are invading a nearby town.

    Each mailing includes a letter written by Boyle, the House of Fear caretaker. The letter is personalized to the person of your choice.

    The first letter includes a copy of House of Fear: The Curse of Cottonwood Ct., and a note that suggests that all House of Fear stories are based on real events.

    From there, the mystery builds as more and more "proof" is presented to suggest that monsters are attacking a nearby town.

    The subscription culminates in a copy of House of Fear: The Grumpledowns Gang and the Case of the Mail-Order Shoggoths.

    Have questions? Let me know and I'll explain the process in its entirety (in other words, I'll spoil it for you).

    Shipments start in July and end in August.

    Includes:
    • 6 mailings that add to the mystery
    • 1 copy of Curse of Cottonwood Ct.
    • 1 copy of Grumpledowns Gang/Case of the Mail-Order Shoggoths
    • Digital copies of both House of Fear comics
