We’re proud to exclusively feature the new horror serial “Deeper Than Hell” by Josh Millican
Here at Morbidly Beautiful, we’ve always strived to bring you the best genre content you can’t find anywhere else. In addition to our focus on horror films and independent filmmaking, we’ve been proud to feature the work of talented genre contributors across multiple media, including literature, graphic novels, music, television, and art. That’s why we could not be more excited to announce an exciting new collaboration with a couple of our favorite people in the horror community. We’ve teamed up with writer Josh Millican and artist Sean Wilson to exclusively publish the dark horror serial DEEPER THAN HELL.
DEEPER THAN HELL tells the story of Sonny and Drew, two heroin addicts living in the tunnels below Las Vegas who go on a bizarre pilgrimage underground. Millican wrote the original serial, which will be published here for the first time, while Wilson provided the extraordinary artwork to accompany the story. Even though we’ve featured creative writing in the past here on the site, this will be our first reoccurring series. And, given the incredible talent involved in this project, we are thrilled and honored to be a part of this.
Josh Millican is best known as a prolific horror blogger (currently featured on HorrorFreakNews.com, Blumhouse.com, and PopHorror.com); he’s also the Director of Community for our wonderful friends at CryptTV.
“Most people know me as something of a journalist, so I’m excited to get back to my creative roots,” says Millican on the project. “My goal is to create compelling characters and storylines that people will be excited to follow, something that readers can look forward to. Expect plenty of cliffhangers!”
Sean Wilson is an artist known for his unusual and often unsettling work, including the poster he designed for the upcoming feature film DEATH HOUSE (described as “The Expendables of Horror”). He will contribute original artwork and “inspiration” for each chapter of DEEPER THAN HELL.
Millican gushes: “Sean’s got an incredible, wicked style that’s all his own. I’m excited and honored to be working with him to create a unique and terrifying universe for readers to get lost in!”
While plot details are being closely guarded, DEEPER THAN HELL will resonate with fans of horror movies and literature.
“Fans of Lovecraft and Clive Barker will love it,” explains Millican. “It’s got some parallels to Alice in Wonderland and Dante’s Inferno, but I’m also drawing influence from 1980’s and 1990’s sci-fi and dystopia. And cults!”
Chapter 1 of DEEPER THAN HELL will debut here on MorbidlyBeautiful.com on October 7th, in conjunction with our one year anniversary. And we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate! Additional chapters will be published the first Friday of each month, and the serial will run through September 2017. Be sure to stay tuned, as this is definitely something you won’t want to miss!
