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.
Next came Daniel Merlin Goodbrey and Sean Azzopardi, two British creators who have collaborated on a horror book, “Necessary Monsters,” which Goodbrey described as a “Mission: Impossible” style team-up of ’80s-style horror characters who work together to police the other monsters. “It’s really a book about a horrible world run by evil people for other evil people,” Goodbrey said, “But it’s very funny, and for some reason the characters are very likeable.” Levin said Goodbrey and Azzopardi have another book in the works that he couldn’t discuss yet.
“Necessary Monsters: Murderbox is a spy thriller where the world is awash with beasts and monsters, dark things that cut, bite, slash and generally kill you. Daniel Goodbrey twists and turns the plot around, following all the rules of thriller writing, throwing in some grotesquery and trimmings of weird, shadowy worlds, but playing up to the clichés, luxuriating in them, even, adding a knowing twist to the thrills.” -Forbidden Planet
