Fear(s) of the Dark

September 12, 2011

 A wildly inventive and visually dazzling collection of fearful tales by six of the world's most renowned comic and graphic artists. From a besotted student whose girlfriend is weirdly ardent in her affections, to a Japanese schoolgirl menaced by a long-dead samurai, and a pack of hounds on a bloodthirsty rampage, there's a story strand to trouble every sleep -- not to mention a stunning range of animation styles. Shot in shimmering black and white, the six intertwined tales create an unprecedented epic where phobias and nightmares come to life and reveal Fear at its most naked and intense.
