’80s Horror Tropes Collide in “The Very Last Girls” OGN from Darby Pop Publishing

Cover by Siya Oum.

Darby Pop Publishing have just announced details of THE VERY LAST GIRLS, a 162-page graphic novel from writer and letterer (and Ignatz Award winner) Josh Eiserike, artists Z. Crockett and Andres Barrero and colourist Michael Woods that asks the question… “What happens when ’80s horror tropes come back to haunt you?”

Here’s the official blurb:

For teenager Megan Williams, who has just lost her family to a zombie attack, life as she knows it, is over. Rescued after witnessing unspeakable horrors, she is taken to a secret facility housing a rehab program for girls who survive what is known as “metaphysical phenomena.” Because—news flash—every scary story you’ve ever heard…from werewolves to demons, psychos to slashers… is true. And it’s the government’s job to keep the public in the dark.

But, Megan is not one to play nicely with others, especially when she believes there’s something the agency spooks aren’t telling her about her kid sister. Or the trail of fresh corpses leading right to her door…

Speaking about the announcement, Eiserike said “Z. and I have been making comics together since we met over 15 years ago at the University of Missouri, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to continue that collaboration with The Very Final Last Girls.”

He continued, adding “We have been quietly working on this for about a decade. Then, Andres Barrero joined us and proved to have a keen eye for detail, emotion, and both scary and funny stuff that works very well within the story! We are absolutely thrilled to finally bring it to life with the help of the entire Darby Pop team.”

The Very Final Last Girls goes on sale June 29th, and you can feast your eyes on some preview artwork below.
