“…horrific and hilarious all at once…” —Gatecrashers

"Champion Mojo Storyteller" Joe R. Lansdale (Hap & Leonard, Bubba Ho Tep) and his daughter, author/country singer Kasey Lansdale (Creepshow, Impossible Monsters), join forces with award-winning artist Daniele Serra (Hellraiser, The Crow) and colorist Tom Napolitano (Batman/Spawn, We Have Demons) to bring you Dana and Jana-the new dynamic duo of supernatural—er, supernormal sleuthing!

Dana Roberts, seasoned investigator of the supernormal, is called to Italy by an ex-lover to investigate a strange phenomenon—the mystery of a bleeding wall. Due to an odd experience of her own, Jana Davis attends a book signing event focused on strange occurrences. The twosome meet, team up and together head to Italy in search of answers.

Are they dealing with a haunted house? A demon perhaps? Or a vengeful specter from the other side? Dana has battled angry jinns, malevolent shadows, ancient travelers, and soul-sucking shapeshifters, but in The Case of the Bleeding Wall, she and her new sidekick, Jana, will face their most dangerous challenge yet.

Collects issues 1-4.

“Atmosphere, intrigue and an inherent looming danger The Case of the Bleeding Wall has it all…”  —Jonathan Chance, Cover The Dead With Lime


"Don’t be fooled: Doing horror in comics is hard. But Joe and Kasey Lansdale make it look effortless as they weave a brilliant and compelling ghost story with emotional heft. And the art by Danielle Serra and Tom Napolitano is as haunting as the tale itself — which is really saying something. Read this one with the lights on."—Marc Guggenheim, Emmy Award–winning writer & author of In Any Lifetime

"If Edgar Allen Poe and Buffy the Vampire Slayer had a baby, this would be it. Anyone who enjoys monsters, ghosts, and magick should pick up this latest Lansdale tale!"—B.Earl, author of Deadly Neighborhood Spider-Man and Daredevil & Echo

"A compellingly scripted, aptly illustrated, and original story...Highly recommended." —Midwest Book Review

Praise for Terror Is Our Business: Dana Roberts’ Casebook of Horrors 

“Storytelling that delightfully takes on a lighter and sharper edge.” —Publisher's Weekly 

Praise for Things Get Ugly 

"Pulpy, blackly humorous, compulsively readable, and somehow both wildly surreal and down-to-earth. Lansdale is a national fucking treasure." —Christa Faust, author of Money Shot 

Praise for Joe R. Lansdale 

 "A folklorist's eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteur's sense of pace." —New York Times Book Review

"A terrifically gifted storyteller." —Washington Post Book Review 

"Like gold standard writers Elmore Leonard and the late Donald Westlake, Joe R. Lansdale is one of the more versatile writers in America." — Los Angeles Times  

"Lansdale's been hailed, at varying points in his career, as the new Flannery O'Connor, William Faulkner-gone-madder, and the last surviving splatterpunk." — Austin Chronicle 

"There are writers who are prolific and writers who are brilliant: Joe R. Lansdale is one of the few who is both." — Christopher Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath  

"…horrific and hilarious all at once…" —Josh Brown, Gatecrashers
