Night Terror

Night Terror is a collection of John Kenn Mortensen’s most imaginatively terrifying monster drawings, this time, exploring the essence of nightmares: their nature and the creepy beings that lurk there. Now, in collaboration with author Peter Adolphsen, Kenn Mortensen has composed a night-symphony, where his poor readers can linger, horrified, in the merciless glow of terror.
