Unholy Grail – Coming from Aftershock!

I’m excited to announce a new series from AfterShock Comics. In July, artist Mirko Colak and I will be launching an Arthurian horror tail titled Unholy Grail.

Arthur Pendragon was the king of all Britain. His story is legendary. Merlin. The Lady of the Lake. Excalibur. Camelot. The Knights of the Round Table. But these stories are bright lies painted over the truth. Here is presented the gospel of Arthur’s bloody rise to power and his unholy reign. The legend of King Arthur is not the stuff of legends, but the fuel of nightmares.

As Arthur descends into darkness, is there any lingering hope that he still might do something good?

I’ve been fascinated by Arthurian legends since I discovered T. H. White’s ‘The Once and Future King’ as a kid. From that point on, I wanted to explore every variation of the story, from Thomas Malory’s work to the movie ‘Excalibur’ to the comic ‘Camelot 3000.’ One of the things that intrigued me was how there are so many interpretations of the epic — as should be the case with all great myths — and so many different takes on the story. At some point, years ago, I started to wonder what the Arthurian legend might look like if they were written as a horror story. I thought about it so much, I guess, that I started dreaming about it. I woke from one of those dreams and scribbled the sentence ‘The demon, who had no name in his own tongue, but would come to be called Merlin by mortals, uncoiled its serpentine body and slithered out of the shadows.’ That was over 20 years ago, but I still have the notebook where I first pondered the concept.

The series features lettering from Simon Bowland and the first issue features covers by Colak and Francesco Francavilla.

And here’s some awesome preview art from the first issue!

Death Follows

deathfollowscover

Last year, The Remains was released digitally from Monkeybrain. The Remains was a dark horror tale from A.C. Zamudio, Carlos Nicholas Zamudio, and myself. The series has not been released in print form… until now. As announced by Dark Horse, the series will be collected, along with some never before seen material, in Death Follows!

From the Dark Horse website:

The Devil Has Come To Call . . .

This spring Dark Horse Books is pleased to offer a graphic novel collecting never-before-printed material from Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Sixth Gun) in Death Follows!

Originally debuting digitally through Monkeybrain as The Remains, Death Follows is horrifically and beautifully realized by A. C. Zamudio and Carlos Nicolas Zamudio. The print collection contains the original prose story by Cullen 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.’”

Birdie, her sister, their pregnant mother, and their frail father all live together on a struggling farm. When an itinerant farmhand named Cole comes to their aid, the children should be relieved. Instead, 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 ofHarrow County will absolutely love this book,” added Bunn.

Death Follows is in stores May 25, 2016. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop or through these fine retailers:

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

IndieBound

Praise for Death Follows:

“Bunn has crafted a simple tale of horror around a questionable love of rodents to create a chilling tale of lost innocence and threatening strangers.”—Bloody Disgusting

“Bunn has proven that he is more than capable at telling scary stories.”—All-Comic

“The last time a comic made the hair stand up on the back of my neck like this was Locke & Key, and that’s saying something.”—Comicosity

Also available from Cullen Bunn:

Harrow County Volume 1: Countless Haints TPB | 978-1-61655-780-5 | AUG150030 | $14.99

2016 Holiday Shopping Guide

Want some ideas for great gifts for the comic book lover in your life? Well, look no further! I’ve compiled a handy shopping guide to help you select the gifts your friends and family (or even you) will love!

If you have a local comic book store, I wholeheartedly suggest going there first for any of these books. If they don’t have something on the shelf, they can order it in for you. You might even find some other great ideas while shopping! If, however, you don’t have a comic book shop or the shop can’t seem to get the books in, Amazon has them in stock. I’ve included the links you’ll need. If you prefer to give digital gifts, I’ve provided links to ComiXology as well!

With that said, on to the suggestions!

 

Let’s say you know someone who loves spooky stories, creepy fairy tales, and/or movies like Pan’s Labyrinth. Well, they would probably love HARROW COUNTY Volume 1, which hits the shelves in December! You can pre-order it now to make sure you get your hands on it as soon as it comes out!

Or maybe you have someone in your family who is super excited for the upcoming Deadpool movie, and you want to get them some books featuring the character! Look no further than DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE!

If you know someone who loves dark horror stories or edgy crime fiction like True Detective, you should introduce them to the twisted supernatural horror of THE EMPTY MAN!

If they like their horror with a heavy does of action and military gun play, they would likely be delighted with HELLBREAK, which just came out in trade paperback!

And you can never, ever go wrong with getting the reader in your life a copy of THE SIXTH GUN. There are eight volumes of the trade paperback to choose from! Why not start at the beginning?
