Bunn, Strahm + Rivas ‘Unearth’ a new horror series at Image

New title will debut in July.

The prolific horror/superhero comics writer Cullen Bunn will team with artists Kyle Strahm and Baldemar Rivas for a new horror series titled Unearth at Image Comics.

“I feel so lucky to be working with Kyle and Baldemar on this book,” said Bunn. “Kyle and I have such similar sensibilities when it comes to horror, but there are enough differences in our tastes that we challenge each other. And Baldemar! What an amazing talent! And he has helped us to push the boundaries of what this tale of terror is all about. We want this story to be something different and shocking and fun and surprising, and I think we’ve succeeded!”

Image describes Unearth as “The X-Files meets Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation” and said it involves a flesh-warping disease that ravages a remote village in Mexico. A scientific task force traces the source of the disease to a nearby cave system, where they discover a bizarre, hostile ecosystem and a supernatural revelation from which they may never escape.

“If you like the idea of beautiful horror, Unearth is the book for you. Baldemar’s art is as pretty as it is disturbing. And Cullen always gives the creeps,” Strahm said.

Check out some preview pages below:

“I’m incredibly proud of Unearth and thrilled to be working with two of the most twisted minds in comics,” Rivas said. “This book is filled with the most disturbing storytelling that I’ve ever done, with a perfect balance of grotesque, beautiful, and chilling imagery in each issue. I’m excited to unleash this beast upon the world.”

The first issue will be “unearthed” (sorry) in July.
