I love when a creepy idea—one that's unsettling, complex, and nuanced—worms its way into my head and just won't leave. The very best thing is sharing these dark visions with fans.

Split Lip is that kind of horror comics anthology. Split Lip features almost 50 short horror comics written by me and drawn by artists from all over the world. Those artists have drawn series for publishers like Image, IDW, Oni, NBM, and more. Your support on Patreon helps us continue to produce Split Lip and gets you more horror comics!

About Split Lip

Split Lip has been praised by Rue Morgue ("Stark, gritty, and unflinching"), io9 ("The webcomics answer to anthology series like The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery"), and Comics Should Be Good ("The best horror anthology on the internet"). We won the Horror News Network Horror Comic Award for Best Web Comic and were a finalist in the same category in the Ghastly Awards. 

Split Lip features early art by artists like Kyle Strahm (Spread), John Bivens (Spread), Steven Perkins (The Coldest Winter), Sami Makkonen (Deadworld), TJ Kirsch (Pride of a Decent Man), Christine Larsen (Valentine), and Iain Laurie (And Then Emily Was Gone). It's also got great art from indie veterans like David Hitchcock (Springheeled Jack), Shane Oakley (Cthulhu Tales), and Jason Ho (Simpsons comics), and many others.
