A twisted, crawling figure. A giggling crowd of masked watchers. A reassembling corpse. There's something there, just waiting for you to turn around. 

Behind You is an illustration series, a comic with no panels, where each piece is a separate story. Each tale is one image and one piece of text: an unsuspecting victim with someone, or something, behind them. Entries range from the amusingly weird to the genuinely unsettling. Inspired by spooky films, books, myths, and internet tall tales, Behind You is full of scary set-ups but leaves lots of blanks for readers to fill in with their own narrative. It's the Far Side for horror fans.

Includes an Introduction by New York Times Best-Seller Joe Hill.
