The three-author novella Knock Knock by Gary Braunbeck, John Everson and J.F. Gonzalez appears in Doorways #7 and is based off the characters in the OPEN vignettes. J.F Gonzalez also mentions the novella in Michael Knost's Writers Workshop of Horror.

Open 5 (by Alan Akerman) and the first part of OPEN 6 - Alex's story (by Rachele Aragno) will appear in the Clive Barker issue (Doorways #6) - Rachele also did the art for the story The Silence in the Subway (which was a personal favourite from that issue). Here's a quick peek at one of the OPEN 6 pages to come - colours by Mattias Traberg over Rachele's pencil and inks.

OPEN 4 will be appearing in issue 5 of Doorways Magazine. This one stands out from the others, as all the text is from dialogue balloons with no captions. Art was from Oscar Capristo. Lettering (as always) by Marshall Dillon.

Open 3 gives a few hints at where this is all going by introducing the four kids who will play larger roles as the authors of the novellas behind each of the individual stories.   Parts 2 and 3 of OPEN appeared in issue 4 of Doorways magazine.

The second installment of my horror vignette series OPEN is now finished.  I went for the all-out super-mix of gore and blasphemy on this one.  The art is by Kelly Mellings, who did a fantastic job on the visuals.
