  • Necessary Monsters

    There exists a world of horrors beneath the one we know. Where the creatures of our nightmares stalk amongst humanity and play their games of vengeance, murder and intrigue. To police this world there is The Chain; a covert agency of monsters and killers, charged with keeping the human herd from ever growing too thin.

    Now a new threat to The Chain’s status quo has risen. The creature known as Harp’s Bane has gone rogue, taking with him the Conundrunomicon – the most secret and powerful codebook in existence. In response to this transgression four of The Chain’s best agents – Gravehouse, Creeping Tuesday, Charlotte Hatred and Cowboy 13 – are tasked to retrieve the book and put a halt to Harp’s schemes.

    The stage is set for a terrifying chase across a hidden America as old grudges and older secrets come bubbling to the surface. Ancient terrors ride in black helicopters, psychotic cowboys walk the land and dead girls with killer smiles hide in the shadows. In this world of horrors there are no heroes and no villains; only monsters. Some more necessary than others.
