"Reads like a literary Tales from the Crypt" - RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE

"From the crossroad of inspiration and obsession to the furthest reaches of the Weird Wild West these tales will engage... and terrify."- Harold Sipe, Author of SCREAMLAND

"The wonderful thing about all Larry's work is its "visual" texture. I literally felt like I was "reading" episodes from some classic anthology program like The Twilight Zone or Ray Bradbury's Theatre."- Michael Smith, MIKE'S FILM TALK

"Larry Underwood delivers the goods with this horror story collection! When it comes to giving you chills, the Doctor [Gangrene] is in!"- Dan Johnson, Editor of CEMETERY PLOTS

"Larry Underwood continues to find ways to shock, delight, and ultimately entertain us with his unique and terrifying vision. A classic monster fan if there ever was one, Larry's stories harken back to the days of pulp comics, where evil lurks behind every crooked oak tree. There's a little bit of something for everyone in these collected works, and I highly encourage you to read them all behind the safety of four walls... because you never know what exists just beyond..." - Kurt Larson, STAY COOL GEEK podcast

Cemetery Plots #2

My buddy Dan Johnson and the folks at Empire Comics Lab have released Issue 2 of their horror anthology CEMETERY PLOTS! Full info below, digital download available for just a buck!! Check it out!


*******************************************






Can You Dig It!? Cemetery Plots #2 Is Here! Press Release from Empire Comics Lab- Monday, June 27, 2016 The mad scientists at Empire Comics Lab have been hard at work preparing the second issue of Cemetery Plots, the company’s premiere horror anthology, and they are now ready to unleash it upon the world.


Cemetery Plots #2 contains three brand new stories that are guaranteed to chill your blood. First up is the terror tale, “Not Wrapped Tight,” about a female mummy who longs to return to the land of the living. Unfortunately for her, her long-suffering mate prefers the peace and quiet of the afterlife. Next is “120,” and, despite its title, this story is nothing you would call ‘by the numbers.’ Set in a future where robots have the final say in all matters, “120” was written by Roger McKenzie of Captain America and Daredevil fame. The final fright fest in this issue is “Thanksgiving.” Set in the old west, this is the story of two outlaws who stumble upon an isolated town in the mountains and find out too late that this paradise will be their doom.


Cemetery Plots #2 also features a special sneak peek at Empire Comics Lab’s upcoming web comic, Two Sentence Horror Stories. Rounding out this issue is a special prologue and epilogue where the book’s host, D.O. Mann, welcomes the reader to his domain, River Shore Cemetery, and gives them a chilling tour of the grounds. Empire Comics Lab is extremely proud of their latest offering and of the talented writers and artists that joined forces to bring this second issue together.


Besides McKenzie, the book features contributions by Will Boyer, Brandon Bullock, Daniel Gorman, Dan Johnson, Barbara Kaalberg, Andy Korty, Marvin Mann and Gary O’Donnell, with a cover by Paul Tuma. Cemetery Plots #2 is available for digital download at this time from the company’s website, www.empirecomicslab.com
