The new series from AfterShock Comics launches in June.
Eisner winner Paul Tobin will return to the horror genre for a new series from AfterShock Comics, titled Bunny Mask. The writer of Colder and Bandette will team up with Maniac of New York artist Andrea Mutti for a horror title with an adorable name.
“Bunny Mask is the story of Tyler Severin, who—due to traumatic incident—uncovers and releases Bunny Mask herself, an ancient, supernatural creature, incredibly powerful and possibly evil, but the thing is…she likes him,” Tobin said. “It’s almost as if she’s imprinted on Tyler, since he helped her ‘hatch.’ The series is about the ripple effects, or more honestly the tsunami effects, on Tyler’s life and the world.”

“It’s very Garth, but it’s not a comedy,” Sharp added. “Some dark humour though of course…”
According to the press release, the series will introduce a villain that even the other Gotham villains are afraid of — even more than Batman.

The four-issue miniseries begins in June.
Christofer Emgård and Tomás Aira, creators of the supernatural war story The Whispering Dark, will reunite for The Secret Land, another miniseries coming from Dark Horse Comics.
The story follows a soldier at the end of World War II who learns his believed-to-be-dead fiancée is still alive and undercover in Antarctica, where the Germans plot their return to power.
“Ever since The Whispering Dark I’ve been looking to reprise my collaboration with Tomás, and The Secret Land finally provided the perfect opportunity,” Emgård said. “This mini-series began life as a pulpy horror tale (it does have both Nazis and tentacles in it…), but at its core it’s really a story about commitment, longing and loss. I feel Tomás has conveyed this beautifully through his evocative art and I hope the readers out there will feel the same.”

“This is all Daniel Hillyard’s fault,” said Wagner. “He asked if I thought we could create a story about serial killers, inhuman monsters and a cult of sunflower farmers all trapped together inside an underground bunker. I mean, you have to do that, right?”
