Back in May, Cinemax took to Reddit’s /NoSleep forum, seeking creepy, creative horror stories inspired by the world of Robert Kirkman’s Outcast. The top submissions were reviewed by Kirkman, himself, and out of several jaw-dropping entries, redditor finedininganddestiel was selected as the winner. To celebrate this redditor’s horrific ingenuity, Paul Azaceta, illustrator of the Outcast series, created a single-page comic to bring the story to life.
Looking to fill that horror void until Outcast returns for Season 2? Check out an excerpt from finedininganddestiel’s story and see Azaceta’s illustration, below. You can read the full submission and all the Reddit /NoSleep entries here.

“Digging, huh? Digging for what?” Elise walked up next to her daughter and placed a hand on her shoulder. Jemma looked up at her with a sweet smile and said, “Our graves, Momma.”
