August, Rylee, Cora & Jennie have organized a ‘Spook Tour’ with theiro classmates on the most haunted, demon-infested stretch of road in America to fund attending the concert of their dreams. When their visit turns deadly, these four friends race to rescue the missing students… before the town tears them limb from limb.

Next year, Boom! Studios will unveil a new piece of real estate right in the heart of 1970s America — home to the most terrifying road in the U.S. Get ready to visit Proctor Valley Road .
The series, described by artist Naomi Franquiz ( Tales from Harrow County ) as “a big slice of Americana laced with uneasy cryptid horror, a side of rebel youth, and a killer soundtrack,” follows four friends in 1970s America — August, Rylee, Cora, and Jennie — whose attempts to raise money by organizing a “spook tour” of the most haunted stretch of road in the country quickly goes awry, leaving the four in a race against time to stop the monstrous threat before things turn very deadly indeed.
Proctor Valley Road will be written by British screenwriter Alex Child ( Holby City , Temple ) and comic book legend Grant Morrison ( JLA , All-Star Superman , The Invisibles , Doom Patrol , and many more).
