Wentworth, Ohio: a small, idyllic friendly little town, where the Carver children bicker over sweets and Johnny Marinville is about the only resident who minds his own business. And on Poplar Street, it’s a normal summer’s day, with lawnmowers humming, Little League bats tinking, Frisbees flying and barbecues being readied. But young Cary Ripton, on his paper round notices something weird about the way Audrey Wyler is standing inside her glass door – and he’s always thought there was something creepy about her nephew, Poplar Street’s best kept secret. What Cary doesn’t notice is the chrome-red van idling up the hill…soon it will begin to roll, the killing will begin and the Regulators will arrive in force. And by night-fall on the block, the surviving residents will find themselves in a wasteland of devastation and despair…Cover art by Chris Moore.
