CULLEN BUNN'S REMAINS COLLECTED BY DARK HORSE
Before you get upset, don't worry, Cullen Bunn is not dead. Remains is the name of the digital series originally published by Monkeybrain with artists A.C. Zamudio and Carlos Nicolas Zamudio. Dark Horse Comics has announced it will collect the series for the first time in print this May, retitled as Death Follows. The print collection will include the original prose story by Bunn and a new cover by Simon Bisley.
“Death Follows is the darkest story I’ve written. It’s a supernatural horror tale set in rural North Carolina, the story of a mysterious farmhand who shows up at a struggling farm looking for work—and brings a nightmarish cycle of events with him,” remarked Bunn. “It starts with a simple (if somewhat strange) line: ‘The dead rats danced the day the hired man came around.’”
The book follows Birdie, her sister, their pregnant mother, and their frail father, all living together on a struggling farm. A traveling farmhand named Cole comes to help them out. The kids should be relieved, but they find their lives spiraling into nightmare as Cole regards Birdie's sister with menacing desire. To make matters much worse, wherever he goes, the dead grow restless. As the horror threatens to consume her home and her family, Birdie is haunted by a chilling warning: Some secrets are meant only for the dead.
“The mystery and dread build to a horrific conclusion. It’s the stuff of nightmares, to be sure. I think readers of Harrow County will absolutely love this book,” added Bunn.
Bunn has quickly become one of my favorite writers in horror comics with some great titles under his belt like The Sixth Gun and the aforementioned Harrow County. I cannot wait to check this one out. Death Follows is set for release on May 25th, 2016.
