IDW Launches Crawl to Me in July

A new original horror comic series by Life of Agony bassist Alan Robert.



San Diego, CA (May 5, 2011) – IDW Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of CRAWL TO ME, a new original horror comic by Alan Robert. Created, written, and illustrated by Robert, best known for being the bassist and creative force behind the respected hard rock group, Life of Agony, as well as the creator of the Wire Hangers comic series, with a film now in development. Robert has paired up with IDW once again for an all-new mini-series set to debut in July 2011.

CRAWL TO ME takes place in an isolated country town during the frigid winter months. The story centers on a young family as they cope with a series of disturbing events that force them to question their relationship, their faith and their very existence.

"I couldn't have been happier to do Wire Hangers with Alan," said Chris Ryall, IDW's Chief Creative Officer, "and to see him stretch in different areas here is even more gratifying. This is a dark, psychologically affecting and surprisingly intimate story that I'm happy to foist on an unsuspecting comic-reading public. Put another way, if you survived Wire Hangers with any part of your psyche intact, Crawl to Me should help finish the job."

The story follows husband and wife, Ryan and Jessica. As they move into their first home together, strange things begin to occur. Half-eaten animals and other remains are found inside the basement's crawl space. Their family dog disappears within the house.  Distant voices are heard from beneath the floorboards. The couple begins to think that an evil entity is living inside their walls. Nothing can prepare them for what they'll discover, but Ryan and Jessica soon realize that they must set aside all they believe to be true, in order to face their inevitable reality.

CRAWL TO ME boasts three unique covers per issue featuring cover art by Robert, Silent Hill: Past Life painter, Menton J. Matthews III and UK illustrator, David Lupton. Visit the official website, at crawltomecomic.com.

"All my life, I've been told that I have a warped and twisted imagination. So, with these horror stories, I'm finally putting my morbid thoughts to good use," says Robert. "When Wire Hangers was received so well by comic and horror fans last year, it really inspired me to continue creating stories in the medium. With Crawl to Me, I wanted to go even darker, but, don't be fooled. This is not your typical, run-of-the-mill, haunted house story. It's more of a thriller, filled with a ton of demented mind-games that will keep you guessing. Think of it like a Twilight Zone episode on steroids."

CRAWL TO ME #1 ($3.99, 32 pages, full color) will be available in stores in July.
