Long Lost is a surreal, dark, slice-of-life horror comic in the vein of Junji Ito’s Uzumaki and Charles Burns’ Blackhole. Created by husband and wife team, Matthew Erman and Lisa Sterle (Modern Witch Tarot Deck), published monthly by Scout Comics.
The first trade collection of the critically acclaimed debut from Matthew Erman and Lisa Sterle, Long Lost is the story of two estranged sisters who find themselves drawn back to their small southern hometown after an invitation from an otherworldly creature. The pair is compelled to unlock the disturbing mysteries that are hidden in Hazel Patch in the hopes of uncovering the bizarre circumstances surrounding their mother… but they must deal with each other first.
