Asylum Press announces solicitations for March 2022 Previews / May 2022 releases. Billy Boy: The Ghastly Nightmare #1 is a one-shot comic book written and illustrated by Frank Forte.

Billy Boy: The Ghastly Nightmare #1 chronicles the dark and disturbing tale of a delusional young boy who see horrible visions, hallucinations and monsters…too bad they are REAL!

The amulet takes him on a wild ride into a dark world where he is chased by demons, bulbous tentacled creatures and wicked old witches. Will he survive? If he does he will never be the same. Drawn in a dark cartoony style, this is David Lynch meets Fleischer Animation Studios! Fully painted in color by writer/illustrator Frank Forte.
