A Returning Nightmare: dark fantasy comic with dimension hopping scifi and a dash of mad monster horror
NIGHTMARE follows Lucinda “Luz” Padilla as she discovers her recurring nightmares are actually alternative realities. When news of a fire at a hospital breaks, and her fellow Sleepyheads (the unwilling participants in a twisted sleep study) start going missing, Luz’s recurring nightmares resurface and wreck havoc on her relationship, job, and sobriety. With her girlfriend Kara Williams, Luz finds herself face to face with the past she can no longer ignore, and in a nightmare she can no longer escape.
Fans of Stranger Things‘ special blend of monster fantasy, Fringe’s sci-fi conspiracy, and Nightmare on Elm Streets‘ horrifying dream worlds will love this dimension-hopping dark fantasy. Fair Warning: some graphic violence and horror content makes this project unsuitable for certain audiences.
NIGHTMARE is a 24-page first issue comic book written by Malissa White with pencils by Benjamin Worrell, colors by Raciel Avila Silva, letters by CJ Jeffrey and inks by Brett Ruppert. Issue #1 is complete and ready for your viewing pleasure. By backing this project, you help continue the dream (horror) in issue #2.
