THE EMPTY MAN #1-8 (Cullen Bunn / Jesus Hervas)

Parce qu’il n’a visiblement pas besoin de dormir, le scénariste Cullen Bunn ajoute une nouvelle série à son planning bien chargé avec le retour de The Empty Man, quatre ans après la mini-série dessinée par Vanesa R. Del Rey.

Le monde est toujours en proie à l’épidémie meurtrière appelée “L’Homme Vide” dans ce nouveau volume dessiné par Jesus Hervas (Penny Dreadful). Le numéro 1 sortira en novembre.

Cullen Bunn : “Why am I writing this book now? I guess I could say the Empty Man made me do it. The original run of The Empty Man came out during a time of great uncertainty and fear in my life. The story, with its air of surreal dread and horror, seemed to mirror a lot of what was going on in my head. It’s only fitting, then, that we return to The Empty Man now, during another strange and uncertain time in my life. Maybe unease and unpredictability and restlessness are part of the sorcery that calls The Empty Man into existence. I always knew it would come back. The story is so much larger and stranger than the tale that’s already been told. If you haven’t read the original limited series, don’t despair. The new book sets everything up for you. There’s a new mystery to be solved and new horrors to be revealed. And, for those of you who have read the original series, there will be plenty of connective tissue to grab onto. The world of The Empty Man is only getting weirder as the influence of this terrifying unseen force continues to spread.”
