In 1986 there was something dark, evil and paranormal lurching in Banner Cross, Sheffield and it was on a killing spree… The full details of these gruesome murders were kept out of the press at the time, but now the truth will be told by Craig Daley in a three issue tale called, ‘The Butcher of Banner Cross’.
This is forth story arc from CDComics, Surreal Murder Mystery Series and has the same the dark macabre humour as the three previous horror whodunits.
Meadowhell: The True Horror of Shopping
Spring Heeled Jack: From the Tunnels of Hell
Football Crazy: The Theatre of Nightmares on the Road to Insanity

The first issue titled ‘Punchline’ introduces the paranormal investigator and title character, who arrives at the scene of a second horrific murder. Watkins, a government spook has enlisted Punchline’s help, due to his unique insight into the world of the surreal and supernatural killers. But this only serves to upset the regular Police who know that when Punchline is involved things have a habit of getting complicated. What follows is an investigation that will test your knowledge of the occult and push your powers of deduction to their limits…
The first 32 page black and white issue features artwork by Chatri Ahpornsiri, who has produced excellent pen and ink work across all three issues of this narrative.
