About us

Pendulum Heart produces horror, sci-fi, and fantasy stories that are rooted in the depths, even the abyss of the human condition --what spawns the inclination of the existential and what it's possible through human actions. Pendulum Heart is a joint effort of comic book creation by artist/writer Richard Kemp and writer Brian Hawkins. Between the two of them, storytelling hangs in the balance.
