SIXTH GUN fan extraordinaire Sean Leslie created this awesome Christmas card, an I had to share it. Whodathunk that the Six, when brought together, would birth a festive tree motif?
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:
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:

As reported by Deadline:
Syfy has put in development Harrow County, a drama adaptation of the new Dark Horse comic written by Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun) and illustrated by Tyler Crook (Bad Blood).
Harrow County was among the first titles identified under Universal Cable Prods.’ first-look deal with Dark Horse Entertainment announced in July. The project has now been set up at Syfy with Becky Kirsch tapped to write the adaptation.
Harrow County centers on Emmy who has always known that the deep, dark woods surrounding her home crawled with ghosts, goblins, and the restless dead. On the eve of her 18th birthday, she learns that she is connected to these creatures and to the land itself in a way she never imagined, for she is the reincarnation of a powerful witch who was put to death on the very day Emmy was born. For this reason, the townsfolk mean to kill her too. In order to survive, Emmy must embrace the unusual powers at her command.
Kirsch has emerged as one of Syfy’s go-to writers. She worked on the network’s Dominion and Twelve Monkeys before being drafted for Harrow County. She is repped by ICM Partners and manager Carel Cutler.
