Changing Ways is a horror series written and illustrated by Western Australia's Justin Randall and published by Gestalt. The story focuses on a father's protection of his young family when a supernatural, cult-related, ecological phenomena descends upon a small, rural community somewhere in America.
Randall's art style is incredibly realistic, his colouring adding an impressive level of gloss, grime, darkness and warmth. The narrative follows classic horror seen in examples such as HP Lovecraft's The Colour Out Of Space or John Carpenter's cult horror sci-fi The Thing.
In the lead-up to the Australian release, a website ran a diary with faux newspaper reports of the shocking events leading up to the events depicted in Book 1 of Changing Ways. This can be seen at www.nolongerknowyourself.com. Details for Changing Ways and the upcoming second book are available at the Gestalt Publishing website.
