Take Nothing But Photographs, Leave Nothing But Footprints (2016):

The first project on the Frisson Comics label is one based partially upon true events. Benjamin and Katherine are a fairly ordinary couple who enjoy nature and long walks on the beach. They also have a habit of bringing home any treasures that they might find washed up along the shoreline, thinking nothing of it. And why would they?

But inevitably the pair are forced to confront the horrific consequences to their seemingly benign actions, consequences fuelled by deceit and denial that spiral out of control towards an horrific climax that has repercussions not only for the young lovers but the wider world as well.
