As thousands of comic fans from around the globe gather in San Diego, California for Comic-Con later this month, the timing couldn’t be any better for creator, writer and illustrator Alan Robert (best known for being the bassist and creative force behind the respected hard rock group, Life of Agony) and the release of his new original horror comic, Crawl to Me.
Crawl to Me takes place in an isolated country town during the frigid winter months. The story centers on a young family as they cope with a series of disturbing events that force them to question their relationship, their faith and their very existence. When husband and wife, Ryan and Jessica, move into their first home together, strange things begin to occur. Half-eaten animals and other remains are found inside the basement’s crawl space. Their family dog disappears within the house. Distant voices are heard from beneath the floorboards. The couple begins to think that an evil entity is living inside their walls. Nothing can prepare them for what they’ll discover, but Ryan and Jessica soon realize that they must set aside all they believe to be true, in order to face their inevitable reality.
