Does the line between insanity and the supernatural matter if it costs you a friend? A lothario faces a grisly vengeance from the mysterious women he’s wronged. A ghost-hunter encounters a ghost bearing a disturbing truth. A tree grows leaves that show a family’s secret history.
These stories, and more, come to disturbing life in the pages of Termites In Your Smile and Other Relationships Gone Wrong, a collection that proves that strange thoughts beget strange deeds.
Includes 25 pages of bonus material not available anywhere else, including author commentary on every story, script excerpts, character designs, sketches, and pencils.
“Some of today’s best horror comics.”
— The Providence Phoenix
“(Costello and Evergreen) unite for a starkly gruesome final panel that adds a welcome sour note to the sad sweetness of the proceedings ... It takes a lot for a collaboration of this sort to work so effectively.”
— Sean T. Collins
