Split Lip is a horror anthology series written by Sam Costello and drawn by artists from all over the world, including Kyle Strahm (Spread; Image), John Bivens (Dark Engine; Image), Sami Makkonen (Deadworld: Slaughterhouse; IDW), T.J. Kirsch (Amy Devlin Mysteries; Oni), Christine Larsen (Valentine), David Hitchcock (Springheel Jack; Titan), and Felipe Sobreiro (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode; Image).
