They’ve faced cannibalistic bikers, gill men, Tok-tok, depth dwellers, vampires, krakens, and Cthulhu himself. Now, the heroes of Broken Moon: Legends of the Deep must be witness to a battle deciding the fate of the world. Dagon has been awakened to fight Cthulhu, and it’s not guaranteed that anyone will survive the encounter — in fact, readers not yet caught up on the series who are keen on avoiding SPOILERS might want to skip the following pages!

Writer Ben Meares has once again teamed up with creator Philip Kim and artist Nat Jones to bring you a conclusion worthy of the icons that inspired it.

Welcome back to BROKEN MOON: LEGENDS OF THE DEEP, where warring factions of monsters have temporarily laid down their arms upon the threat of Old God Cthulhu and his relentless spread of madness! Creator Philip Kim (MONSTER WORLD) and writer Ben Meares (HELLRAISER) have brought our band of heroes to the edge of the ocean, where mysterious Depth Dwellers will lead them to their last hope: Dagon. But they have to get past a protective army of sea serpents first…

Rockstar horror artist Nat Jones (’68) infuses this monster mash with incredible atmosphere.

The great C’thulhu has returned to poison the world. But what kind of war can Korbin and his friends make against madness?

The solution may just lie with a small coven of vampires, who have gone into hiding since the destruction of Vampire City. Marzia, their leader, still scarred from the previous battle, is not keen on working with humans and werewolves — until she witnesses firsthand what effect C’thulhu has on the vampires’ prey… and the results are not pretty.

Thus a reluctant alliance is formed in this new issue of BROKEN MOON: LEGENDS OF THE DEEP, a watery post-apocalypse created by Philip Kim (MONSTER WORLD), written by Ben Meares (HELLRAISER), and illustrated by the amazing Nat Jones (’68).

The ocean holds many secrets… and in the post-apocalypse, they’re coming into the open! First gill men, then the demented creatures known as “Tok-tok”… and now, David, Avery, and Keeney — survivors of the attack on Vampire City — have come bearing tales of mysterious “Depth Dwellers” who speak of an ancient god.

A sudden explosion has sent Korbin and To’klace’s group of gill men scattering for cover, and the culprit is none other than Lorren! But even the crazed gang leader is given pause when something enormous rises from the water, bringing truth to the legends and madness to all living things.

Don’t miss the newest installment of the hit series created by Philip Kim and written by Ben Meares, with moody artwork by Nat Jones.

The first arc of BROKEN MOON brought werewolves, vampires, and Frankenstein legend into the same ruined universe… and teased the existence of another, lesser-known classic monster: the gill man! Now with LEGENDS OF THE DEEP, creator Philip Kim and writer Ben Meares (HELLRAISER) have brought the gill men and their world to the forefront of a new tale, and original series artist Nat Jones is along for the ride!

Following a barely staved-off kraken attack, a score of gill men have appeared at the edge of Korben’s tiny fishing village in now-waterlogged Nebraska. What could the creatures possibly want from humans?

It’s the chapter on World War I you didn’t read about in high school! The one that involved monsters, mayhem, and the severed head of medusa! Detective Barrymore has seen a lot in his lifetime, but sometimes one face can bring back those dark memories that were once forgotten about in the crevices of the mind!

Barrymore recalls his first meeting with the makeup artist they call John Price—twenty years previously, on a World War I battlefield. But his memories of the night are muddled, and he decides to pay World Studios a visit. Soon everything comes to light as Barrymore is exposed to the secret that has kept the studio running for years!

What started out as a routine investigation has derailed into a dance with demons, and Barrymore is determined to find out the truth—about World Studios, about the woman calling herself Shirley, and what really happened to studio exec William Forrester, Jr. But when he sticks his nose where it isn’t wanted, Barrymore and his reporter friend Buck find themselves at the mercy of a mysterious cult that seem to have control over actual monsters!

Something sinister is lurking behind the cameras of world-famous World Studios, and it may not be human. When Detective Henry Barrymore is approached by a mysterious woman to investigate her husband’s disappearance, he hardly expects to be embroiled in the workings of a mysterious cult who seem to have control over movie monsters. It’s CASABLANCA meets CROWLEY in this supernatural noir miniseries!

Steve Niles returns to American Gothic Press with new title Monster World!

Following the apocalyptic mayhem of Gunsuits and Bornhome and the monster spectacles Broken Moon and Project Nemesis, it’s time for something a little bit quieter at American Gothic Press, and that creepy hush will come from new series Monster World.

Monster World, which unites Steve Niles—in his second title for American Gothic—and AGP publisher Philip Kim in a joint storytelling venture, falls on the mysterious end of the horror spectrum, following the investigations of one Henry Barrymore into the intracies of a major film studio and what it might be hiding behind the monster makeup.

The concept comes from the mind of Publisher Philip Kim, who asked himself, what if a horror movie makeup guru got his “special effects” from real monsters, and what kind of sorcery would it take to control them?

In addition to haunting covers by Piotr Kowalski and colorist Dennis Calero, the four issues of Monster World will each ship with a retailer incentive cover of interlocking images from an occult painting by artist Nigel Sade.
