After a tragic loss, George hopes to rebuild his life. He moves to a new house. He gets a new job. He starts dating the girl of his dreams. Sometimes, though, guilt can be as malevolent as an evil spirit. Sometimes, ghosts follow you. Something is rotting in the walls of George’s new house. Something hungry.
Written by Bunn (Nightwalkers, Door to Door Night by Night), illustrated by Rodrigo Zayas (Cyber Force: Rebirth) with colors from Lorenzo Scaramella and letters by Dave Sharpe Foulness in the Walls hits local comic shops on February 15.
We all know what it is like to walk into a room, even in our own home, and smell something off-putting. Wether it’s the packaging from the raw chicken in the trash from the night before or a dirty diaper from the baby, smells can be pungent and overwhelming at times. We can only imagine the smell of a rot within the walls and not knowing where this smell is coming from or why. This gives us an uneasy feeling, something Bunn is able to accomplish in Foulness in the Walls.
Bunn continues to awe with his deep and dark horror comics (really when does this dude sleep?) and it only gets better with Zayas’ artwork and Scaramella’s colors. The unique story lends itself well to a one-shot, but leaves us wanting an on-going story.
Be sure to let you LCS know you are interested in a copy of Foulness in the Walls from AfterShock Comics. The one-shot features a incentive variant cover from Szymon Kudranski in addition to the main cover by Sami Kivela.
