PORTLAND, Ore. 10/23/2019 — Prolific horror writer Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Sixth Gun) teams with fan-favorite writer Kyle Strahm (Spread) and rising star artist Baldemar Rivas to present the first story arc of their subterranean nightmare Unearth, Vol. 1 to readers this January 2020. Unearth, Vol. 1 is best described as The X-Files meets Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation in a series perfect for fans of HBO’s Chernobyl and will collect issues #1-5 of the bestselling body horror series into trade paperback.
In Unearth, Vol. 1 a flesh-warping disease ravages a remote village in Mexico and a scientific task force travels to the inhospitable area to investigate the contamination. As victims of the illness are transformed in horrible ways, the 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.
