EDEN... Coming from AfterShock!
AfterShock Comics has announced a new prestige-format romance/horror one-shot called Eden, written by Cullen Bunn, illustrated by Dalibor Talajić, colored by Valentina Briški and lettered by Marshall Dillon.
"Eden is the story of Niles, a tattoo artist who is stuck in something of a rut," Bunn said. "His life is a cycle of work, drunkenness, and guilt—lather, rinse, repeat. All that changes for him, though, when a mysterious young woman named Eden walks through the doors of his tattoo shop. She's looking for something... different... and she finds it with Niles. But Eden is a woman surrounded by deep enigmas... not the least of which is how and why her new tattoos vanish after only a few days. As Niles learns more about Eden, he is driven to fathomless depths of both love and horror."
"This is absolutely a horror story, but it is also a love story," he continued. "Love and horror—they go so well together. It’s also a simply gorgeous book, thanks to Dalibor Talajić, and Valentina Briški. This book is like nothing else you have ever seen from me."
