“What it’s about is Satanism,” Sampson explained, describing the book as a family getting stuck in a town of Satanists. “It’s what happens next. This is very much Steve [Niles] doing what he’s so good at — taking a bunch of humans with a preexisting set of relationships, and putting them in a gnarly situation. We’re going to get quite into what Satanists actually do. There’s human sacrifice, rituals, nudity. It’s just amazing.”
“I’m doing this comic with my 13-year-old nephew, he’s working on me with it,” she said, adding that most people are drawn to horror at a young age. “This is for him.”
When asked what type of horror the team is aiming for, she shared, “It’s gross. It’s psychological in that you don’t know what’s going to happen. Really, what you’re talking about is the dynamic within a family. It’s a fairly straight-up scary story.”
