Demons of Sherwood

There's only about 18 pages done so far, but Bo Hampton's Demons of Sherwood over at ComicMix is off to a chilling, exciting start. After a brief re-introduction to the Robin Hood legend, the story picks up with a mob of villagers chasing a gypsy girl through Sherwood. They think she's in league with the Devil, but they quickly discover something truly demonic in the forest mists.

Bo Hampton is a master horror illustrator. His work is beautiful on its own, but he also knows exactly how to present a scene for maximum creepy. I've been a big fan of his adaptation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow for a long time and it's great to see him back at comics with Demons of Sherwood. He opens the story with a thrilling, scary chase scene (the villagers are portrayed almost like serial killers, which is a fantastic take on them) and doesn't waste any time getting to even greater chills.

I have no idea where it's headed, but I'm excited to find out. It's free to read, so click the link above and check it out.
