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!
Writer/Creator: Rebecca Burgess
Short and awkward comic artist/illustrator residing in Bristol!
Guest artist: Alex Chautin
Alex Chautin is a New York transplant in Western Massachusetts. In 2016, he edited the anthology Scenes From a Cafe Counter and began work on his weekly comic strip TEACHER!

He spends most of his time either teaching or reading, while doing both in a plaid over-shirt.

Guest Artist: Jenny McKeon
Jenny McKeon and Alex Chautin like comics almost as much as they like each other. Alex does most of the writing for Eerie PD while Jenny does most of the art, with some overlap between.
