Remember that MTV show, Scarred? The one where skaters, bikers and bored young adults alike took epic falls that resulted in limbs bent at awkward angles and bones jutting out through skin? Well, that's about what you can expect from Thrasher's August issue, but with dope illustrations from James Callahan, the man behind Barf Comics and Nowhere Skateboards. Each illustration in Slam Demons personifies the respective slam as an all-powerful, high-impact monster ready to wreak havoc on the willing skaters who attempt success.

"From curbs to waist-high rails, or from flatground to hill bombs, each slam is unique and it’s only a matter of time until this blood debt needs to be reckoned. And whether you’re supernaturally talented or staring down your first drop-in: Everyone pays." [Thrasher]
