The Empty Man Comics Return with All-New Movie Edition Softcover Collection

The Empty Man Movie Edition

20th Century Studios and BOOM! Studios have announced that The Empty Man, based off the acclaimed graphic novels, will be available to own digitally and on Movies Anywhere beginning January 12, 2021, along with an all-new softcover collection set to arrive in comic stores, bookstores, and online in January 2021.

The Empty Man Movie Edition softcover collection comes from the superstar team of writer Cullen Bunn, artist Vanesa R. Del Rey, colorist Michael Garland, and letterer Ed Dukeshire. As the inspiration for the motion picture, The Empty Man Movie Edition will feature the haunting film poster as its new cover. To celebrate the film’s digital release, BOOM! Studios has made the entire debut issue of The Empty Man Movie Edition available to read for free on its website.

Directed by David Prior, this supernatural horror film centers on shocking events originating in a small Midwestern town. After the mysterious disappearance of a group of teenagers, James Lasombra (James Badge Dale), a troubled retired cop, is thrust into action to investigate. Following leads that may tie a secretive occult-minded group to a terrifying local legend, he soon realizes that his life — and the lives of those close to him — are in terrible danger. The screen story and screenplay is by David Prior.

In the world of The Empty Man comics, it’s been one year since the first reported case of the titular disease, and no drug has been able to slow its progress. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, and suicidal dementia, followed by death or a near lifeless, “empty” state of catatonia. As cults rise nationwide, the FBI and CDC enter a joint investigation of the Empty Man, racing against the clock to piece together clues to stop the cult and uncover a cure.

W. Maxwell Prince Teams with the Best Artists for a new Anthology, Haha

Image Comics has announced that bestselling creator/writer W. Maxwell Prince will team with some of the industry’s best artists—starting with Vanesa R. Del Rey—for a new anthology comic series called Haha this January.

The new series is about professional clowns—it will share a common clown theme from issue to issue, but will showcase Prince’s characteristic one-shot storytelling. Haha promises a departure in tone and will break out beyond Horror to present a variety of stories across various different genres. 

The distinctive new series Haha will also feature the work of various different interior artists, with issues drawn by Gabriel Walta, Roger Langridge, and more, in addition to Del Rey.

Haha peeks under the big top, over the rainbow, and even inside a balloon to tell a wide-ranging slew of stories about “funny” men and women, proving that some things are so sad you just have to laugh.

Haha #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, January 13.
