Sleep Tight

by Leschen & Sauter

Carly, an exterminator, creates a super insecticide to destroy NYC’s bedbugs on a quest to avenge her mother’s freak death, but accidentally mutates the bugs into human-sized, intelligent, militant, sexual, lethal monsters. Her story is intertwined with a side plot about a Canadian chanteuse named Dionne Salon.
