Mysterious things are happening in Range, a small town in the shadow of Mount Rainier. The lives of the inhabitants are at risk. Ghosts are running cars off of the roads. Wolves are roaming the streets. Deformed and savaged bodies are being found in the woods. Runoff is dark, stylish, funny, visceral, and above all, unpredictable. Before the narrative reaches its powerful conclusion there will be force-fields, ghosts, werewolves, tesseracts, talking animals, vampires, mummies, a dissertation on the fourth dimension, government conspiracies, comic strips, and, of course, a municipal election. Recommended to fans of Twin Peaks, Hell Boy, Black Hole, and the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and enthusiastically endorsed by Guillermo Del Toro.
