Silk Hills brings horror to Appalachia in Summer 2022
Oni Press is pleased to announce the upcoming publication of the original horror graphic novel Silk Hills, written by Ryan Ferrier and Brian Level, illustrated and with colors by Kate Sherron, and lettering by crank!. Silk Hills will be available Summer 2022.
When Beth Wills comes to Silk Hills, a small Appalachian town that’s seen better days since the mines were abandoned, she expected a bit of culture shock…but not like this! Beth is someone who has a talent for finding people who don’t want to be found, and when she’s called to Silk Hills by a local titan of industry, she can tell that something’s not right.
The town was once booming, but now the only reason people tend to come through anymore is to buy Mothman merchandise. Before long, Beth finds out just how wrong things can get in the woods, as her search for a missing troubled youth finds her running afoul of the local drug trade, too-friendly creepers, a very sinister deer, and psychoactive moth dust.
Perfect for fans of Twin Peaks, The X-Files, and Sons of the Devil, Silk Hills weaves atmospheric and stylish suspense into an unsettling by quirky tapestry with elements of folklore, body horror, and themes calling back to Italian slasher films. Silk Hills will be available online and in stores on May 25, 2022.
