Next month sees the release of Proctor Valley Road #2, the next issue in the new series from writers Grant Morrison & Alex Child, artists Naomi Franquiz and Tamra Bonvillain, and letterer Jim Campbell. The horror series follows a quartet of teenagers in 1970s America as they face threats both supernatural and all-too-real. Following the events of the series’ first issue, the four kids are under suspicion by pretty much their whole town after a group of their fellow students go missing on the notoriously haunted titular stretch of road. Can they find their missing classmates and clear their names?

Check out a five-page preview, exclusive to The Beat, along with covers by Franquiz, Christian Ward, Dan Mora, and Chris Wildgoose, of Proctor Valley Road #2 below. Published by BOOM! Studios, the second issue of the five-issue miniseries is set to arrive in stores and digitally on Wednesday, April 14th.

As the town – and even their families – closes in on the girls, August makes a choice to visit that haunted road one last time. And even if she survives, an even greater threat may have its eyes on these four friends…
