We all have deep dark fears that are almost always irrational and probably rooted from our childhood and most likely festered when we were alone and trapped in our thoughts. Deep Dark Fears illustrates those fears in a comic form and they're funny to see but also exposes us to a whole new set of fears we never thought we had.
