As a child, series editor Alisa Kwitney loved reading the strange, thought-provoking, deftly illustrated stories in Red Circle Sorcery and Charleton’s Haunted Love and Midnight Tales. Like many of the classic Twilight Zone episodes, these were often love stories—but love stories that involved outcasts, rebels, and misfits. Love stories for the marginalized and alienated.
Liminal Comics is a place for those kinds of love stories.
