Everything is as is for Adrian, a regular guy having regular day. That is until the day he becomes plagued by extremely vivid and gruesome hallucinations. He thinks he is going crazy until a friend takes him to a hypnosis session which seems hell bent on ridiculing people. But when Adrian gets a past life regression done, things change. What happens when the creatures of a past life come to haunt you in your present life?
This comic is something special, it touches on the topics of past life regression, hypnosis sessions and what happens when the barrier between a past life and this life is crossed. What happens when the monsters from the past join in with the life you live. A bit hard to classify at first but after an interview with Cullen Bunn, which is also available on here, we can firmly situate this story in the horror genre. Although it does not feel that way from the get go, it feels ominous. Be advised this is not the type of comic you put in the hands of young children. The art whilst being fantastic and colorful is very gruesome at times. It creeped me out, so that goes without saying that it was brilliant!
Fans of Cullen Bunn will be pleased to see this brand-new series start off just right. If you are new to his work, do give it a shot, you will not be disappointed.
This comic leaves you with one massive cliffhanger that will have you count down the days until you can get your hands on the next issue. It is that good, that scary and that intriguing. Trust me when you start this series, you’re in for the long haul! It will be doubly worth it for sure.
