After his breakout indie comic Malevolents launched back in 2015, T.W. Burgess quickly garnered attention from the likes of David Sandberg (Annabelle), Andy Nyman (Ghost Stories) and forewords from the likes of Corin Hardy, Reece Shearsmith and international horror manga artist Junji Ito. Burgess has maintained a high profile within the comics medium, publishing Hallows Fell, Photoghasts and Nyctophobias in which his ghost stories were illustrated by talents such as Pam Smy, Abigail Larson and Trevor Henderson with all profits donated to the Australia Zoo foundation.
In 2020 amidst the worldwide pandemic, T.W. launched a Kickstarter for a graphic novel anthology ‘Early Haunts’. The campaign quickly gathered momentum eventually gaining 799 backers and raising £25,900.
Early Haunts now remains one of the most successful horror anthologies funded on the Kickstarter platform.
