Critically acclaimed artist Sam Kieth and writer Chris Ryall team up for a science fiction adventure in the upcoming The Hollows. This dystopian one-shot story will hit shelves from Image Comics in July.

In this specially priced, extra-length comic, readers are transported to a near-future Japan, where spectral, once-human husks prey on the unfortunates who couldn’t find salvation in the skyscraper-like trees that now dominate the decimated landscape. A discredited scientist works furiously to find a cure, until a one-eyed orphan girl and her pet, uh, Urp, force him to rethink everything he knows…

“Working with Sam Kieth is always an invigorating, inspiring time,” said Ryall. “The Hollows was a true blending of our ideas, worlds, and styles into something wholly unique and engaging for me as his co-creator. And I hope people who read it feel the same way.”

The Hollows one-shot will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, July 27:

The Hollows will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
