This week, a very exciting new horror title debuts from Boom! Studios, The Unsound from Cullen Bunn and Jack T. Cole. In The Unsound, we explore the life of a nurse at Saint Cascia Psychiatric Hospital where Ashli faces a “bloody riot” that drives her into the lower levels of the facility. There, she begins to encounter a darker world than she had ever encountered, one that’s “hellish” in nature. Encountering “lunatics and monsters”, Ashli also discovers a “secret history of black magic” and “heinous and scientific experiments”.

So, this is a very cheery book, clearly, but it’s one that fans of new directions in horror might well enjoy. Cullen Bunn has proven himself to be a master of mannered horror writing, and new artist Jack T. Cole’s style creates an interesting tension between foreshadowing and revelation.
Here’s a preview of this week’s new comic:
The Unsound #1 arrives on Wednesday, June 7th, 2017, from Boom! Studios.
