It’s 1863 and the inhabitants of New Fraternity, Indiana, find themselves far from the front lines of the American Civil War but still under threat from it; food is scarce, deserters come to seek asylum, and a mysterious feral beast that walks on two legs prowls the forest around the town. The beast seems to have some connection to Emile, a feral child found a few years earlier and taken in by the townsfolk. As their fear and paranoia grows, the townsfolk start to hunt the beast and turn on each other, with tragic results that threaten to undo all that they have been working toward.
This haunting horror story written by Juan Díaz Canales, the co-creator of the popular Blacksad series, and illustrated by the talented José-Luis Munuera, is perfect for fans of the monster genre and classic universal monster movie enthusiasts.
