Synopsis: Terrible things stalk the forests outside Arkham in this chilling original tale. An arrogant city slicker on a quest to uncover the background of a young woman from the backwoods finds horrors beyond imagining, in a story that combines Lovecraftian mutations with Native American legends.
Comment: The artwork is a top notch quality. Pages are full of tall narrow frames, all memory parts have rounded frame.
Version, : On page 6 part 2, Kito is posing for nude for art class. In second frame teacher's stick is pointing the way you can see Kito's vulva; then again in his hand is in a new position that you cannot see it anymore. Later on the same page, last frame you can see Kito's naked breasts flobbing around while she's running; then again in the flobbing is less visible. According Dark Horse, the changes were done by Richard Corben. On part 4, the first frame was the logo, "The Rat God", but in the collection version there exists an usual text box with additional text.
