Select praise for The Realm:
“The Realm is a world built from the cadaver of normalcy. A post-apocalyptic fantasy that punches you in the nose...and still makes you want more. Be warned: this book is contagious.” —Aaron Kuder (Guardians of the Galaxy)
“The Realm is like Dungeons & Dragons colliding with a really great post-apocalyptic survival story. A fun genre mash-up!” —Jeff Lemire (ROYAL CITY, A.D.: AFTER DEATH)
“A brilliant melding of genres with a nice punch to the nuts at the same time.” —Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse)
“An awesome blend of fantasy and dystopia. It's THE WALKING DEAD meets EAST OF WEST with a dash of Lord of the Rings thrown in.” —Horror Talk
“Action-packed and heading somewhere compelling. And the art by Haun and Filardi is immensely successful in setting the mood: creative, beautiful renderings of an ugly situation and a world that’s seen better days.” —Geek Magazine
“Writer Seth Peck and artist Jeremy Haun imbue fantasy with the survivalist rigor of Cormac McCarthy (The Road) or Stand-era Stephen King, with threads that straddle human need with intoxicating supernaturalism.” —Paste Magazine
