STRANGERS & FRIENDS
The small British town of Wootton Bassett begins to be haunted by a series of mysterious and horrific murders.
Hemu, a shy and geeky new comer in town, becomes an obvious target for the local community to point their finger at- he does have his fair share of secrets! But what secrets are the other locals hiding?
A comic about the peculiar prejudices and customs of small communities, with a hint of social commentary and a sinister splash of fantasy-horror!
