A sadistic and resourceful killer, The Trapper is in for a surprise when he sets his sights on Kelly and her friends in Night Trap, the new slasher comic book series from Cullen Bunn. Ahead of its June debut via Lion Forge Comics, we have a look at the cover art and a set of preview pages from the first issue.

"From one of the most critically acclaimed horror writers in comics comes a chilling tribute to the genre's most memorable slasher classics.

Hoping for some weekend relaxation and fun, a group of college kids rent a beautiful back country lake house. Unfortunately for them a vicious serial killer known as The Trapper got there first and turned the area into a death trap. The gang quickly realizes there is no escape, but just as suddenly finds a secret weapon of their own: a trauma buried deep in Kelly's past that is now screaming to the surface. The Trapper always thinks three steps ahead, but even he doesn't know what is coming next. NIGHT TRAP is a brutal, page-turning, and wholly unexpected tribute to the glory days of ’80s slasher movies.
