'The Spinechillers' is a weekly comic strip relating to the little known story about the time when the world's greatest writers shared a small boarding house to create some of the most loved horror stories of all time.
Small press comic genius Ben Clark is the creative talent behind the strip and will be delivering a freshly drawn adventure each Friday.
Marvel at HP Lovecraft's inspiration for Cthulu, gasp as Ambrose Bierce struggles under the weight of his own creative output, and marvel as Edgar Allan Poe and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle mud wrestle to determine once and for all who is the better horror writer.
"My idea for the comic strip is to take the writers from The Spine Chillers series, and have them all live together in a grotty, 1950s style boarding house, with an indifferent battleaxe of a Landlady called Mrs Parkinson. I thought the boarding house backdrop provided the most scope for stories, conflict and most importantly, jokes.
One thing I have to stress is that it is not my intention to belittle or insult these wonderful writers, many of whom are among my greatest heroes. I'll be taking the Mickey, but in an affectionate way. What I always attempt in my comics is to be silly, and to make people laugh. The characters I am working on are of course not how these men were in real life, but a daft alternate version, which hopefully people will find amusing!"
