The Kerry family is being torn apart over their mother’s terrible illness, the deadly Empty Man disease. But when a stranger approaches, promising a cure, they must face how far they are willing to go...
There’s something terribly wrong with Melissa Kerry. Her husband Andrew sees it. Their teenage daughter Vicki sees it. Melissa is losing herself, falling into the grips of the Empty Man pandemic that is spreading across the nation. Andrew and Vicki do all they can to care for her themselves, to keep her worsening condition a secret from the roving government quarantine crews, but it’s becoming harder and harder...until a strange visitor arrives on their doorstep, offering a cure. Written by Eisner Award-nominated author Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, Bone Parish) and illustrated by artist Jesús Hervás (Lucas Stand), Recurrence is the second installment in The Empty Man franchise and explores the psychological horror of a family member in decline, and the depths one will go to protect those they love.
From Cullen Bunn (Harrow County) and Andrea Mutti (Prometheus,
Starship Down), comes a new dark fantasy tale of two worlds split
between dreams and reality. After his son disappears, a broken-
down man braves a nightmarish dreamscape in order to find him—and
battle the ruthless cult that seeks to rule the land of dreams as the
barrier between realities starts to collapse.
