OUTSIDE is a a horror anthology in the classic 50s tradition of EC et al, but featuring the absolute cutting edge of current graphic story telling and the new comics form.
It is a graphic anthology featuring horror stories for grown ups, stories to take you outside. Outside the norm, outside your comfort zone. While being produced to the highest standards by cult creator Ash Pure, the first project he has produced for another publisher, the book can go up against, but will always stand apart from the mainstream. it is progressive, demanding and beautiful but, importantly it has the content to match its style.
And while the comic might be seen as being specifically designed to offend the current powers that be, it’s important to note it has no political agenda. It’s not here to answer burning questions. It is here to give voice to those who have been excluded for those who’d rather not integrate, for all those that would rather remain… OUTSIDE.
