Alien meets A Quiet Place in this science fiction tale of terror for fans of Josh Malerman’s Bird Box and Tim Lebbon’s The Silence about a post apocalyptic world in which monsters hunt the things that make us human – where feeling is a dangerous thing.

Live. Laugh. Love. Scream.
DIE.

Dax and Bisa love each other. But in this new and terrifying world, love is dangerous. Feeling anything is dangerous. Love. Hate. Joy. Fear.  Any of these in strong doses will bring a swift death. Earth has a new and terrible invader—monsters that smell the scent of emotion, salivate over the prey, and hunt the very feelings that make us human. A shocking tale of pent-up emotions and forced composure in the face of unspeakable horror…from one of the most celebrated writers in comics, Peter Milligan (X-Force, EnigmaShade the Changing Man, Hellblazer) and breakout horror artist Sally Cantirino (I Walk With Monsters, The Final Girls).

Collects the entire eight-issue series.


Reviews:

“I read this at a gasp, horrified by the bloody events as much as the too familiar feel of a society self-destructing–even before the monsters come. A palpitating whirlwind of a start.”  — Daniel Kraus (New York Times bestselling author of The Shape of Water, Trollhunters, The Teddies Saga, and Vault Comics’ The Autumnal)

“As brilliant and incisive as ever, Peter Milligan questions what makes us human,and what motivates us to make the terrible decisions we inevitably make.”– Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Eternals; The Wicked + The Divine; Once & Future)

“Human Remains might be the scariest Vault series to date.” – Gate Crashers “a brutal, visceral, soul crushing world where the barest hint of emotion can lead to a violent and bloody death.” — Multiversity Comics

Talk about your favorite kind of character to draw / Talk about your least favorite kind of character to draw.

If I had to pick, my favorite recurring characters to draw were Dr Sharma, Dax & Bisa together, and Jessica.  I don’t think I have a “least favorite kind of character to draw”! Let’s be honest- my least favorite thing to draw are big crowd scenes, but I still enjoy drawing the individual people in it. There are characters who do things that I don’t enjoy drawing, like Dr Sharma’s husband being a creep or Jessica’s husband being an abusive jerk. But at the same time, McStay’s actual character design, facial features, and expressions were fun to draw, even if he was a terrible person. I enjoyed drawing Sullivan, even if he was a terrible person. I loved drawing Hays and Tammy, even if Hays was awful (even my mom was like, “How is he still alive at the end of the book??”)

Describe your ideal writing/creative space.

An office with a door I can shut because my cat loves to do crimes and chew wires, lots of natural light, strong wi-fi signal, a record player and all my records, and a couch to nap on at 3 PM every day (or whenever it storms).


 

About Peter Milligan:

Peter Milligan is a legendary British writer of comics, film, and television. One of Entertainment Weekly’s “it” writers of the early 2000s, Peter Milligan was at the forefront of the revolution in comics which were created for a more sophisticated, adult audience. 

Shade the Changing Man for Vertigo offered a skewered look
at American culture, while Enigma, Face, The Extremist, and Rogan Gosh pushed the boundaries of what comic books could do. Milligan was the longest-running writer of the cult horror comic Hellblazer, and his take on Human Target inspired the TV series. For Marvel, the hugely-popular X-Statix was a radical reworking of the X-Man paradigm, described by Kevin Smith (CLERKS etc) as “the most well-observed scholarly analysis of media-manipulation filtered through a pop-culture lens ever committed to the page”.

Milligan is the screenwriter of  Pilgrim AKA Inferno (2000) and An Angel For May (2002) and currently is the co-creator and writer of Human Remains for Vault Comics
