Dark secrets unfold in Steve Nile's
Freaks Of The Heartland

Under the weathered skies of America's heartland, and in the wounded hearts of every family in one tiny rural town, a terrible secret has been kept for too many years. Now, a young boy named Trevor must try to keep his younger brother Will from falling victim to the worst fears of a troubled town that can't begin to understand the tragic secret that binds its families together. Some folks would call Trevor's brother a monster. But to Trevor, Will is just another kid trapped in a dark reality he can't comprehend. When the situation moves from bad to worse, and their father threatens to do away with Will, Trevor learns that they're not alone—that “freak” children were born to other families in Gristlewood Valley. And just as they were all born at the same time, it seems their sad, frustrated, and emotionally spent parents seem to be hatching a plan to see that they disappear at the same time. Against all odds, and with nothing but love for his brother in his heart, Trevor is going to do whatever he can to get Will—and the other freak children—out of harm's way, if it's not already too late. Collecting the six-issue miniseries.

Written by Steve Niles with art by Greg Ruth, the Freaks of the Heartland collection arrives on sale May 25, with a retail price of $17.95. Edited by Scott Allie.
