I believe it's challenging to truly scare someone when reading a comic.  That's why whenever it happens, I take note.  That was the case with And Then Emily Was Gone, a shocking and disturbing mini-series from writer John lees, artist Iain Laurie, colorist Megan Wilson, and letterer Colin Bell.  It was a terrifying comic that still sends shivers down my spine.  This is why I nearly dropped my laptop from excitement when I got the press release announcing the creative team was joining forces again for a new horror one-shot entitled Quilte, set to debut at the Edinburgh Comic Con next weekend from ComixTribe.  Here's the write-up from the publisher:

Quilte tells the story of Dr. Karla Quite, a revered psychologist who uses her unique gifts to treat patients afflicted with recurring nightmares. But when tasked with helping troubled young Adam Whitlock, her journey into his mind leaves her facing forces far more malevolent than bad dreams.

"The response to Emily was simply overwhelming, and I've been eager to get the gang back together for something new from pretty much the minute we finished on that book," said John Lees, "And the creative team have taken things to new heights, with Iain crafting some of his most disturbing imagery ever. I feel confident that Emily fans will be more than happy with Quilte."

"It's great to be reunited with the And Then Emily Was Gone team," added Iain Laurie, "And even better that we're debuting it in my home city at the Edinburgh Comic Con."

"Edinburgh Comic Con felt like a natural choice for debuting the comic," continued Lees, "We had an absolute blast at the show last year, and we were treated very well by both the organisers and the passionate comic fans in attendance. And with the move to a bigger venue at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, this year's show is set to be even better. Iain and I wanted to do something really special, offering the Scottish readers who have been so supportive of us the chance to check out our new project before anyone else in the world, and we hope to offer what will be the hottest exclusive on the show floor!"

If you're not attending the Edinburgh Comic Con on April 2nd and 3rd, don't fret.  Quilte will be published by ComixTribe later this year.
