Discover the Horror of Cullen Bunn and Jonas Scharf’s Bone Parish #5

BOOM! Studios has released a first look at Bone Parish #5, on-sale in comic shops on December 26th. The critically acclaimed twelve-issue necromantic horror series from superstar writer Cullen Bunn and artist Jonas Scharf follows the proliferation of a new drug sweeping through the streets of New Orleans—one made from the ashes of the dead.

Arriving in stores the same day as the only new releases from BOOM! Studios, Bone Parish Vol. 1 Discover Now Edition collects previously released Bone Parish #1-4 for the first time under one cover in a new Discover Now limited edition with a cover by Lee Garbett, available only at local comic book shops.

Getting high off of the ashes of the dead is a complicated affair, and so is selling the drugs that get you there. Grace Winters, matriarch and criminal mastermind, is running her enterprise with the help of her children and the ghost of her dead husband, Andre, through the use of the ash. But the machinations of rival gangs and the unexpected side effects of the drug begin to result in deadly and complicated consequences, including the death of one of their own. As the Winters family mourns, they must also wrestle with the horrific question —are the dead truly ever gone if their ashes can still reveal secrets and hidden truths long after their passing?

Bone Parish #5 features a main cover by Lee Garbett and variant cover by Tyler Crook.

Advance Review: Witch Hammer

One of my favorite shows right now is the eponymous Supergirl which has surpassed the original movie and in some respects has set the standard for the comic. The show contains multitudes of depth and character development that the movie lacked in comparison. It also is probably one of the more relevant shows on television right now and we’ve seen that same awareness been carried on by Black Lightning. In its current season the show has tackled both xenophobia and hate mongering.

The show is currently threading a storyline which gets at the root of hate. It portrays a movement which is hellbent on attacking anyone who is alien. It asks the question, what would you do if you found out your neighbor is as an alien? In the past this would be a Twilight Zone-esque story where the concept would be explored. In Cullen Bunn’s Witch Hammer, a similar question is asked through a series of homicides with one thing in common they are all witches.

Witch. The word conjures images of hags in black robes and crooked hats, standing over cauldrons of bubbling brew. But witches are among us, and we do not realize it. They are our friends and neighbors. They are our family members. They are our idols.

And someone is murdering them.

Two young couples going out of town seemingly gets into a car accident, as one couple gets killed the surviving couple realize that it was no mere coincidence, but an assassination attempt. The reader soon finds out this is one in series of murders, which catches the attention of the FBI, where Agents Frontenac and Guinness are assigned to the case and find even more fatalities.

A killer is stalking witches, hunting them down mercilessly. As the FBI agents delve deeper into the hidden, magical world around them, they are haunted by a terrifying question. Is the killer doing the right thing?

The graphic novel is a new spin on the supernatural thriller. It combines elements of Silence of the Lambs with End Of Days creating an engaging bitches brew. The story by Cullen Bunn is entertaining, superlative and fast paced. The art by the creative team gives reader a raw unvarnished canvas which feels as visceral as anything you have ever seen. Altogether, it’s an excellent graphic novel which is more than a worthy entry in the canon of evil cult suspense books.

Get a First Look at Cullen Bunn’s The Empty Man #2

BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at The Empty Man #2, the newest chapter in this hotly anticipated story by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Jesús Hervás.

Terror rises as the Empty Man pandemic continues to ravage entire populations, tearing families apart and bringing the afflicted together to commit heinous acts of violence with no end or relief in sight. The Kerry family continues to struggle with Melissa’s early stages of the disease as the rest of the world unravels and the mystery deepens. What compels the victims to perpetrate such twisted savagery on themselves and others? What do they really see when they hallucinate the Empty Man? And does the disease simply unleash the rage and madness within or is the Empty Man who makes them do these things real?

Debuting in 2014, The Empty Man captivated readers as Bunn and Eisner Award-nominated artist Vanesa R. Del Rey introduced their unflinching look at a dystopic version of the world we know, where a terrifying disease has taken on almost deific connotations. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, suicidal dementia, followed by death, or a near lifeless, “empty” state of catatonia. As cults rose nationwide, the FBI and CDC entered a joint investigation of the Empty Man, hoping to piece together clues to stop the cults and uncover a cure. This new ongoing The Empty Man comic book series delivers terrifying new horrors, perfect for new readers and longtime fans alike, in the world that captivated fans worldwide and led to a feature film adaptation currently in production at 20th Century Fox.

The Empty Man #2 featuring a main cover by Del Rey and a variant by Hervás will be available for sale on December 12th.

One of the afflicted is Melissa Kerry, and the next step should be to quarantine her—but those who enter quarantine are never seen again. Melissa’s family won’t let that happen. All they have to do is care for her, keep her worsening condition a secret—and they’ll do anything, trust anyone, to keep her safe.
