It’s Literally Hell on Earth in Kyle Starks and Artyom Topilin’s I HATE THIS PLACE #2 from Skybound

“I Hate This Place is an exceptional debut that firmly establishes its world and characters, making for an immediately engaging and enthralling story.” – CBR
“I Hate This Place #1 is an excellent first issue, one that draws from more horror tropes than it seems would be possible, ultimately creating something wholly excellent and wholly new.” – Comics Bookcase
“I Hate This Place #1 is a truly mesmerizing addition to comics’ horror canon, and shouldn’t be missed.” – Comic-Watch
Today Skybound unveiled a first look at I Hate This Place #2, the buzzed-about new supernatural horror series from the superstar team of Kyle Starks (Assassin Nation, The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton), artist Artyom Topilin (Ice Cream Man Presents Quarantine Comix Special), colorist Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class, The Good Asian), and letterer Pat Brosseau (Birthright, Manifest Destiny).
Gabby and Trudy are trapped. It’s literally Hell on Earth. But the true monsters may not be who they seem…
“I want to sincerely thank the retailers and the fans for the huge early success of I Hate This Place. It’s the biggest launch of my career and that is entirely thanks to all of you,” said Starks. “This is just the start of what, I assure you, is going to be wild, fun, monstrous ride of a series completely worthy of your support, even with a curse word in the title. I promise I most likely won’t do it again.”
In order to provide retailers and fans with options, each issue of I Hate This Place will have open-to-order covers by Topilin with clean and explicit cover options, featuring the standard series title and the explicit version of the series’ original title, Fuck This Place.
The available covers for the issue include:
  • I Hate This Place #2 CVR A (Diamond Code APR220200)
  • Fuck This Place #2 CVR B Explicit Variant (Diamond Code APR220201)
Both versions of I Hate This Place #2 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, with the standard edition available on digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
The I Hate This Place official trailer is also available to watchright here. You can also watch Kyle Starks’ panel on paranormal activity from last week’s Skybound Xpo here.
