The follow up to the cult graphic novel containing more short stories from acclaimed horror writer Thomas Ligotti brought frighteningly to life by a collection of today's most talented writers and illustrators. In this all-new volume, four of Ligotti's most celebrated tales are adapted into fine graphic literature by a collection of esteemed writers and artists. In "Sect of the Idiot" and "The Chymist", writer Stuart Moore explores the Lovecraftian landscape of a world where all is not quite as it seems and chronicles the life of a doctor whose oath is to harm rather than to heal, while in "Gas Station Carnivals" and "The Clown Puppet" writer Joe Harris ushers forth a sinister backwoods carnival Showman and an evil, ethereal puppet who haunt their victim's every waking dream and sleeping nightmare. The Nightmare Factory - Volume 2 represents the continuation of 2007's acclaimed graphic novel The Nightmare Factory, for which outlets such as Entertainment Weekly and The Boston Globe praised the book as, "deliciously bleak" and, "a bitterly entertaining treat".

Praise for the Nightmare Factory: 'Connoisseurs of literary skill who are willing to be frightened will find the book a feast.' Booklist "Moody art and ominous pacing create an air of creeping mystery that suits Ligotti's macabre tales." Washington Post "In a fall season typified by much more categorizable frights, Nightmare Factory provides a bitterly entertaining treat for those attuned to its storyteller's grim sentiments." Boston Globe
