Chillers, the classic film from Troma Studios that captured the Silver Scroll Award w returns with all new tales in an original graphic vel. Writer and director Daniel Boyd is joined by some of the best in horror to present more terror and chills. Troma Films is supporting the release of the graphic vel with a re-release of the film on DVD and the Buddy Black Band is releasing a tribute album, Witchfinger, to also coordinate with the graphic vel. Evil travels in many forms, even by bus. But this bus takes its riders to a journey that they can never return from. This graphic vel is the first in a series of stand alone anthologies set in the same format at the film. A bus takes passengers on their final rides and the stories tell the tale of how they became passengers on this bus. REVIEWS: If you're tired of what passes for horror in comics today, Chillers will renew your faith that there are good writers and good artists who can deliver true horror stories. ---Mania.com. I love this collection. I read a lot of anthology titles and Chillers is quickly rising to the top of the list with the best of them. ---Decapitated Dan's Reviews
