“Every terrible thing you have ever known is alive and well inside of you.”

Natalie & Kay are lucky to be alive. That’s what everyone tells them when they aren’t side-eying them for their involvement in one of the most gruesome serial murder cases in history. But they sure don’t feel lucky. Their ordeal six months ago has brought them to a lower point than either of them has ever been.
Burdened by memories of what they survived, and demonized by a society that threw them away at the earliest opportunity, they struggle with meeting their most basic needs, and help from the outside world rarely seems to come without strings attached.
But, worst of all, each of them knows the horrors they encountered are still out there. Waiting.
What do you do when you see the world’s true face?
How do you stay invested in life when life itself seems to not be invested in you?
Who would you be if you could escape your own limitations?
The Urban Animal is Bria’s follow-up to her acclaimed 2019 horror graphic novel, She Never Came Out. Overtly political, and intimately personal, The Urban Animal is a magic spell. It is Bria’s exorcism of her own worst traits – of the internal struggles she has faced throughout her life, that she sees reflected in the world around her, and which she suspects lies in the hearts of most people, and at the root of many of our problems.
Creeping tension, body horror, and existential angst abound in this 8 chapter Graphic Exorcism growing like a tumour out of the author’s mind.
