“I’ve only worked on horror-adjacent comics in my short career, so I’m pretty excited to finally get a chance to test out my storytelling skills on a pure horror comic,” said Eric Zawadzki.

So what’s Skybound Presents Afterschool #4 about?

Mr. Kelly wanted to shake up the traditions at his private boarding school, so he started a new club. But what happens when a history teacher’s grand experiment in free thinking takes on a life of its own?

“Working with Eric, Jon Moisan, and the legendary creative and editorial team at Skybound has been a dream come true. They’re so supportive and curious,” said Leon Hendrix III. “They’ve held my hand as I’ve made the transition from writing for film and TV, and together I think we’ve created a fun, twisted little fable that hopefully helps shine a light on the value of being honest and true to yourself. I’m so excited for people to read it!”
