BASILISK #1-10 (Cullen Bunn / Jonas Scharf)

Après Bone Parish, le scénariste Cullen Bunn et le dessinateur Jonas Scharf reforment leur duo pour une nouvelle série horrifique intitulée Basilisk. Le premier numéro sortira en juin.

Who Can Stop The Chimera? Five individuals bound by a cult-like hivemind, they terrorize small towns with their horrifying supernatural sense-based powers, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Regan, one of the Chimera, escaped and has been in hiding, with her murderous eyes bound, overcome with guilt. Until now… when a victim from her past forces her to hunt down the other four of her kind.

Cullen Bunn :

" Basilisk is an epic, dark, fantasy horror story, and I can’t wait for readers to meet the players on both sides of this tale of revenge. Here we have a woman who has absolutely nothing left to lose hunting down a group of would-be gods, each of whom can use one of the five senses to destroy those around them. They’re terrifying in their own way–the heroes and the villains," said Bunn. « This is another collaboration with the amazing Jonas Scharf, who worked with me on Bone Parish, and I think his work here is even more amazing, even more deific, even more haunting. »
