Vault’s full description of the series reads: 

The Midwest is the backdrop for Something Crawled Out, where Edith “Eddie” Miller has no grand plans or great prospects. She spends her days sleeping in and her nights working shifts at a gas station. But when her younger sister fails to come home, Eddie unearths a web of missing girls and rotting bodies. 

The police prove useless, so Eddie teams up with her best friend, Rainer, in a desperate hunt to find her sister. The only thing is—Eddie believes her best friend might be the Devil himself.

Son. M shares the inspiration that helped blossom the idea behind this story, saying: 

“Love is a violent thing. I’ve always been obsessed with the inherent connection between brutality and beauty, and the way we express our relationships in different ways. Something Crawled Out is about two desperate people trying to save someone they love, and thus committing unspeakable acts of violence onto others along the way. 

I’ve always wanted to write horror that was so tied to expressions of the Final Girl trope, mixed with the active presence of the Hunter. Rather than reacting to the tragedies around her, Eddie is constantly causing devastation in her desperation to find her sister.”

MadCursed adds:  

“Reading the Something Crawled Out scripts, I was immediately drawn to the devilish aura surrounding the characters. I really enjoy stories where the arc isn’t always self-improvement, but rather, self-destruction. There’s a violence in a lot of these characters in Something Crawled Out and a lot of the circumstances they face bring it out in terrible ways. And yet, despite all the horrors happening, you still find yourself rooting for them. You want them to win.”

Son M continues: 

“Working with MadCursed is a dream! There’s a ton of really nuanced expressions of love vulnerability in this story, and MadCursed expresses these dynamics beautifully. Plus, they really know how to nail having both incredibly hot characters (wink wink nudge nudge), comedic moments, and extreme, unforgivable acts of gory violence. What more could I ask for????”

MadCursed concludes: 

“I’ve always wanted to draw comics, ever since I was a kid, and now here I am, doing it! Something Crawled Out is just the beginning. There’s going to be more from us in the future, we’ve got a long way to go. And that’s a promise.”

Horror comics are always one of my favorite genres to read and even with as many as I have consumed over the years, this idea is one that will prove to be thought-provoking and truly likely to connect with readers on a different plane. There are questions that will arise and connections that may very well tie into our own lives and bode questions of our conception of good and evil. 

Something Crawled Out #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally in October 2023.
