Welcome to the Riptide Sanitarium, where every cell tells a tale! The brainchild of Ghostbusters co-writers Keith Dallas and Jim Beard, Riptide Sanitarium is a multi-genre anthology of self-contained stories: horror, science fiction, historical drama, fantasy, crime. In short, any and every kind of story imaginable, and all of them standalone so you won’t have to worry about keeping tabs on some indecipherably convoluted continuity. 20 pages of imagination and creativity. That’s what awaits you inside the RIPTIDE SANITARIUM!
This first issue (or first “cell,” if you like) offers a tale about three suburban youths who go looking for trouble… and find it! It’s Don’t Breathe meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers, sure to please any horror fan!
The inaugural issue of Riptide Sanitarium brings you a suspense-filled and instant horror classic! Everyone has “that house on the block…” you know which one, the one your parents tell you to never go near, the one your friends tell you is haunted… that’s the one. In this terrifying tale written by series creator Keith Dallas with art by Juan Romera, three friends enter a foreclosed “zombie house” thinking they’ll find squatters who will be easy marks in order to steal a few bucks. However, what they find is something far more hideous than they could ever imagine! Step inside and see what awaits inside the pages of “Infection.”
