    The City written by James Herbert and illustrated by Ian Miller of Games Workshop fame. Pretty minimal story, but I really like the surreal illustration. There are three novels by James Herbert also in the same setting, but with unrelated stories. This is pretty short, 60 or so pages it will fit on the first page.

    I loved this as a kid. Miller also did a bunch of fantastic novel covers. *brofist*

    Does this get any more freaky and depressing that this?

    Here, obviously
    That was... really sad, horror writer notwithstanding.

    I enjoyed it, still.

    Fucking rats are stealing our women!!!



    Thanks for the posts, Destroid.


    Also, LOL at the bridge destruction failure. I mean, they could have had the spiked helmet guy wander away or something...
