John, the school outcast, is chased deep into the woods on the night of the homecoming dance by the football team captain and his goons. What he finds hidden among the trees is far worse than the beating that was coming to him. His life is forever changed when a symbiotic, man-eating alien attaches itself to his chest, tentacles, and all. Celery Stalks tells the unfolding of life on the other side.
Patrick Rooks has created a modern-day masterpiece with Celery Stalks. Rooks' graphic novel seamlessly blends Silver Age horror and romance comics with the modern mystery twists of Twin Peaks wrapped in a visual language reminiscent of Steve Ditko.
"For fans of The Twilight Zone, Black Hole & Twin Peaks, Celery Stalks sits right up there with the best of them" - Strangers fanzine
