Draw You In, Vol 1 – Collector's Item

Can someone disappear so completely only you remember they were alive?

That’s what comics creator Linda Corrigan asks when her editor Paul goes missing without a trace. No one remembers he ever existed, not even his mom. Only Linda recalls him and she can’t let go of his memory. She has to find out what happened to him.

FBI Agent McPherson is working a similar cold case. Tracking a missing person only he can recollect. When he learns of the police report Linda files, McPherson recruits her to his own case.

The disappearances are linked to a forgotten cartoonist, a neglected genius called R. L. Carver. To solve them Linda and McPherson must find out what became of this lost comic creator. Joined by comics historian and conspiracy theorist, Richard Ford their investigation takes them on an odyssey across the entire United States.

As they uncover R. L. Carver’s secrets they also uncover the secret history of horror comics from the 1950s to the present day. They learn of the misfits, the madcaps and the macabre masters who forged an industry, frightened a generation and felt the heat of the Federal Government.

But the secret history of horror comics threatens to unlock the secret history of the United States. Soon all three of them are tumbling down a rabbit hole of conspiracy and consequence. Their quest for truth might just expose the very mystery of existence.

Described as ‘Kavalier and Clay meets Clive Barker’, Draw You In, Vol 1 – Collector’s Item is the first in a mind-bending trilogy of novels. It explores not only the history of horror comics but the culture and country that created them.
