It's a shame. Such a great site with some wonderful ghoulish tales and not just the three I illustrated. It'll be missed.
Oh and lovely cover by the way, Shane.
I recognise the pose.

..Sam ain't stopping writing em, just Split Lip was eating his life up.

BIG respect for the man; doing rather than just talking about it.

Chuffed we both had the chance to join in.
