TheEmptyMan_feat-625x199

 

The idea for THE EMPTY MAN came to me while I was on a road trip. Long drives often put me in the “idea zone” (THE TOOTH and HELHEIM came to me on similar trips). I drove down a stretch of highway lined with an old, tangled barbwire fence. Every so often, I’d see a piece of tattered plastic sheeting that must have blown off the back of a truck. The sheets clung to the barbwire, and they flapped in the wind like strange phantoms. For some reason, the phrase “The Empty Man made me do it” popped into my head, and I couldn’t shake it. Now, several years later, I finally get to tell the story that sprung up from that weird phrase.

I took some time to talk to The Nerdist about the upcoming series. Check out the interview here.

The Remains … Coming Soon From MonkeyBrain Comics!

Posted by cullenbunn on February 16, 2014  /   Posted in Comics

I’m really excited to announced this new project–THE REMAINS, a 4-issue horror series to be published by MonkeyBrain Comics. This bone-chilling tale of terror is gorgeously illustrated by A.C. Zamudio and colored by Carlos Nicolas Zamudio. It will be available digitally through ComiXology on February 26th.

“The dead rats danced the day the hired man came around.”

Birdie and her younger sister Abigail live on a struggling farm. Their mother is several months pregnant and their father suffers from crippling rheumatism. When an itinerant farmhand appears, the children should be relieved. Instead, they find their lives spiraling into nightmare. The hired man regards Birdie 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 book will be available on ComiXology, and you can pre-order the first issue and subscribe to the series now!

Here’s a look at the first few pages of Issue 1.

Parental Supervision

Here’s a blast from the past! Some of my first published work in comics, a one-page strip from the pages of Futurequake! This was part of a contest to tell a one-page sci-fi story, and I went with something trippy and fun. It won the contest and was illustrated by Inaki Miranda and colored by Eva de la Cruz.

After all this time, I still like it. I hope ya dig it!
