AfterShock Comics have just announced details of EDEN, their latest horror “one-shock” from Cullen Bunn and Dalibor Talajić.
In Bunn’s own words, “EDEN is the story of Niles, a tattoo artist who is stuck in something of a rut. His life is a cycle of work, drunkenness, and guilt—lather, rinse, repeat. All that changes for him, though, when a mysterious young woman named Eden walks through the doors of his tattoo shop. She’s looking for something… different… and she finds it with Niles. But Eden is a woman surrounded by deep enigmas… not the least of which is how and why her new tattoos vanish after only a few days. As Niles learns more about Eden, he is driven to fathomless depths of both love and horror.”
Bunn and Talajić have an impressive track record with the “Read Dangerously” publisher, having previously worked with AfterShock on the likes of DARK ARK, WITCH HAMMER, BROTHERS DRACUL, UNHOLY GRAIL, PIECEMEAL, and KNIGHTS TEMPORAL.
The 48-page one-shot hits shelves on May 5th 2021, and you can feast your eyes on the official blurb – and some tasty preview artwork and Tony Harris’ incentive cover – below.
