The new comic series THE BUTCHER'S BOY will now be in one deadly delicious paperback volume.

The press release follows:

Media Release -- From the creators of The Last Siege comes the slasher/psychotropic horror comic series The Butcher's Boy, now collected in one paperback volume. Combining elements of Midsommar and The Evil Dead, this spine-tingling horror lurches from the minds of New York Times bestselling author Landry Q. Walker and artist Justin Greenwood. This volume collects issues #1-4 of The Butcher's Boy, written by Walker (The Last Siege) and Pannel Vaughn, with art and cover art by Greenwood (The Last Siege), interior and cover art colors by Brad Simpson (All Eight Eyes), and letters by Pat Brosseau (Hellboy).

Deep within the backroads of the Pacific Northwest, an entire town fell victim to the brutal cleaver of the Butcher of La Perdita.

But that was more than a hundred years ago, and in that time the generational nightmare of murder and meat has been reduced to morbid clickbait folklore for bored travelers to share online.

And yet some say the Butcher still haunts the streets at night, seeking fresh meat for his larder. A true Lovecraftian horror? Or just the feverish dreams of a mentally unstable serial killer. Six friends on a road trip are about to find out…

The Butcher's Boy (136 pages, 6.625x10.1875", paperback) will be available January 7, 2025 in bookstores and January 8, 2024 in comic shops. It is available for pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, TFAW and at your local comic shop and bookstore and will retail for $19.99.
