I've had this idea knocking around for a while, but I didn't know what to do with it, until the penny finally dropped and I realised, towards the end of 2006, that I could do it as a comic. This strip was later published in full in the third issue of anthology title Paragon.
Whenever I watched one of those films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, where horrible, but utterly non-supernatural, bastards do something nasty to unsuspecting folk, I've wondered what would happen if Leatherface and his family brought in someone other than their usual prey. What if, instead of the hapless teenagers they expected, they brought home something worse than themselves? When I was unfortunate enough to watch the terrible Hostel in 2006, that idea came back to me, and I decided to finally put it to paper; with that film still very fresh in my mind, the comic has a fair bit in common with it, but this story is very much a parody of the entire sub-genre rather than a specific instance.
