PSYCHOLOGICAL HORROR REGRESSION, VOL. 1 ARRIVES IN STORES THIS NOVEMBER
Celebrated horror writer Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Damned), artist Danny Luckert (Haunted), and colorist Marie Enger (Pistolwhip, 2 Sisters) will release REGRESSION, VOL. 1: WAY DOWN DEEP this November from Image Comics. This trade paperback will collect issues #1-5 of the mind-bending horror series.
Plagued by ghastly waking nightmares, Adrian reluctantly agrees to past-life regression hypnotherapy. As his consciousness is cast back through time, Adrian witnesses a scene of horrific debauchery and diabolism. Waking, he is more unsettled than before, and with good reason—something has followed him back. Adrian descends into a world of occult conspiracy, mystery, reincarnation, and insanity from which there is no escape.
“My father was a professional hypnotist,” said Bunn. “While his on-stage performances centered around humor, he conducted past life regressions for select groups. I witnessed several of these regressions, and each one was surreal and eerie in its own way. Subjects described different times and places in vivid detail. They spoke with unusual accents. They spoke languages they had never (to our knowledge) studied. The most bizarre occurrences were the regressions which resulted in a completely silent subject.
“To me, it seemed that either they were a genuine ‘new soul,’ or whatever they saw in their past was too horrific to so much as utter,” continued Bunn. “This story is designed to conjure that same sense of unease and horror.”
Select praise for REGRESSION:
“Bunn, Luckert and Enger have created a real page-turner: frightening, engrossing, and clever.
A must-read for horror fans.” —Steve Niles (30 Days of Night)
“REGRESSION is creepy, disgusting, and awesome. Just like Cullen.”
—Jeff Lemire (ROYAL CITY, A.D.: AFTER DEATH, DESCENDER)
“This may well be the best new horror series out there.” —Nerdist
“REGRESSION will get under your skin. It will shake you to your core. This is a damn scary comic.” —Horror Talk
“The team on this book is perfect, and this is consistently one of the best horror comics on the rack.” —Comicosity
“REGRESSION is certainly for older, more seasoned horror fans who appreciate the ‘body horror’ of Cronenberg’s films and comics such as Alan Moore’s Providencewhich challenge, horrify, disgust, and entice the reader all at once. Because of this combination, it is one of the best horror comics to debut in years.” —Horror News Network
