Hoarse & Buggy Productions Launches Second Title, “Elk’s Run”

Official Press Release

The critically acclaimed creators of cult indie hit Western Tales of
Terror are back, this time with a stark and dramatic look inside small
town America, ELK’S RUN. An 8 Issue Limited Series, bi-monthly, and
in glorious Full Color, Elk’s Run has a spotlight in this month’s
issue of Previews.


Do you remember your first kiss? The first time you drove a car?

How about when your friend was killed or the first time you saw your
father murder someone?

John Kohler’s coming of age story is unlike any you’ve ever read. He’s
growing up in Elk’s Ridge, West Virginia, a once thriving mining town
now cut off from the rest of the world; its secrets hidden for years.
But when local police and FBI agents begin to investigate the town,
the citizens of Elk’s Ridge will be forced to finally stand by the
ideologies they choose to adhere to, no matter the cost.


“A genuinely creepy scenario washed in moody colors and possessing a
pervasive atmosphere of mystery and genuine suspense. One of those
original books that jumps up and grabs your attention.” – B. Clay
Moore (Hawaiian Dick, Battle Hymn)

“Elk’s Run uses evocative art and authentic dialogue to tell a story
that combines the coming of age and suspense genres in a way that
transcends both.” – Phli Hester (Green Arrow, Deep Sleeper)

“Elk’s Run is strong, character-based horror. The kind that builds
slowly and gets under your skin. Sort of like Demo meets old-school
Hellblazer, and yes that’s definitely a good thing.” – Stuart Moore
(Lone, Para, Firestorm)

“In a few short pages, Josh and Noel made us want to see what happens
next, and that’s a mark of a good story, well told.” – Larry Young
(Publisher AIT/PlaneLar)
