This is probably the best indie I have read this year and certainly affected me more than any book I picked up from the major publishers in many, many months. The fact that this is Gibson's first work simply astounds me. 
Ain't it Cool News

There's something really immediately impressive about Twisted Dark. A really well put together set of solidly entertainingly dark tales. Twisted Dark is an impressive debut from Gibson, one he'll hopefully build on for his next projects.-Forbidden Planet International.

A punch to the gut that will remind readers that good comics can most definitely be found off the mainstream.

Neil Gibson is the founder and lead writer at TPub. He is currently writing all of the titles at TPub, but is looking forward to the day when other writers are hired he can take credit for their work. He used to be a management consultant, before realising in his 30s that he loved good comics and wanted to make a career out of them. He believes that the comic book medium is one of the most efficient mediums for communicating stories. If you want to annoy him, just mention how you think comics are for kids. His reaction is a common source of amusement. He has given talks in universities and clubs about comics and will gladly talk anywhere he is invited to about comics and how underutilised they really are.
