Kyle Starks and Artyom Topilin’s Hit Horror Series Comes to Its Fateful End

LOS ANGELES 06/08/2023 — Today Skybound revealed a first look at I Hate This Place #10, the epic series finale of the 2023 Eisner Award-nominated supernatural horror series from creator/writer Kyle Starks (Assassin Nation, The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton), creator/artist Artyom Topilin (Ice Cream Man Presents Quarantine Comix Special), colorist Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class, The Good Asian), and 2023 Eisner Award-nominated letterer Pat Brosseau (Birthright, Manifest Destiny).


Witness the thrilling, action-packed final issue of I Hate This Place to see if it concludes with the literal end of the world and massive amounts of death…or a “happy” ending for our beloved heroines. (If we’re being honest, it could really go either way.)


“It has been such a joy and a pleasure to share the story of Gabby and Trudy and their journey through Rutherford Ranch with all our readers and the comic community,” said Kyle Starks. “I’ve been so blessed to get to work on this series with two artistic beasts in Lee and Artyom who absolutely gave life to this world. I’m so thankful for all the support and kind words this book has gotten and absolutely blown away by the prestigious distinction of being nominated for an Eisner. While, as a storyteller, you often know the direction a story is going to travel, you never know where it will go with the readers, and I can’t say thank you enough to all of them for coming along with us.”


To provide retailers and fans with options, each issue of I Hate This Place debuts with open-to-order covers by Topilin with clean and explicit cover options, featuring the standard series title and the explicit version of the series’ original title, Fuck This Place.

The available covers for the issue include:

  • I Hate This Place #10 CVR A (Diamond Code MAY230232)
  • I Hate This Place #10 CVR B Explicit Variant (Diamond Code MAY230233)


Both versions of I Hate This Place #10 will be available at comic book shops (SRP: $3.99) on Wednesday, July 5, 2023, with Cover A also available on digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
