Somewhere in the British Isles, at the end of a neglected road, there is a village called Lip Hook. For its inhabitants, the village is more than the end of the road – it's the end of the world. Beyond it, there is nothing but mist-shrouded marshland. Few travellers take the road to Lip Hook, but one foggy night, a car speeds perilously towards the village. The driver is a dangerously beautiful woman, the passenger a man with a gunshot wound and a suitcase containing a treasure he has risked his life for. Cash-strapped but in need of a place to hide, the two fugitives seek shelter at the Hanged Man Inn, where the woman persuades the inn-keeper to accept payment in kind. As days pass and the woman extends her services to more of Lip Hook's men, among them the village priest, a false faith grips the community – and reason, logic and humanity begin to disappear. "Lip Hook takes some of the best conventions of the British folk horror genre and uses them to perfect effect.", ComicsBeat
