A press release from After the shock gave more details about Party and prey plot, as well as a glimpse into Foxe’s advanced art. Alan, an older man used to being ignored by younger people, finds a relationship in a bar with a younger man named Scott. The two return home together, and that’s when the story really begins. Orlando was hesitant to reveal more of the plot beyond that, saying readers will only really know what is going on “30 pages.” Foxe’s art shows Scott and Alan meeting at the club; it then passes to Alan lying on the floor and Scott walks into the room with a bag of knives and other sharps – his exact intentions are unknown, but readers can discern they are not good.
Orlando and Foxe were quick to point out that Party and prey will be a different genre of queer horror thriller. In the press release, Orlando and Foxe state that there is a time for positive and affirmative LGBTQIA + stories and characters, but there is also a need for stories that have challenging and challenging content and that don’t are not afraid to ask tough questions. The book will examine the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” that can plague communities, and how indifference from the outside can allow them to thrive and hurt others. The two creators strove to have a varied representation in Party and prey also, saying the book will have queer characters “of all kinds”.
