Horror Masters Cullen Bunn And Andrea Mutti Team Up For ‘A Legacy Of Violence’
by Brendan M. Allen
Mad Cave Studios has announced A Legacy of Violence, a 12-issue horror/mystery maxi series by masters of horror Cullen Bunn and Andrea Mutti, with letters by Rus Wooton.
The story follows Dr. Nick Shaw; an honest doctor just trying to help people. But one day, when a patient gets out of control, Nick suddenly begins recalling past memories he had kept hidden away. That’s when he decides to join Doctors Without Borders and heads straight for Central America. But his past still comes calling.
With a serial killer on the loose in the small town of Disante, Honduras, Nick’s flashbacks begin to intensify–and become clearer. Was Nick meant to go to Honduras? Is this all part of the killer’s plan? Find out what Nick has been repressing all these years and why, in the all-new, horror maxi series just in time for Halloween!
When Dr. Nicholas Shaw joins a humanitarian medical outfit in Honduras, he hopes to recover from a recent traumatic event and actually help those in need. But something sinister has followed Dr. Shaw, something that wants to put his medical skills to ghastly tests, something connected to the young doctor’s past… and to untold horrors that occurred long before he was born.
“It’s always a delight to work with my pal Andrea, and to work on a story like this with him, a story that fits his masterful talents so well—that’s just thrilling!” said Bunn. “A Legacy of Violence is a big, sweeping, challenging horror story, and I’ve loved writing it. For this tale, I had to rely on some different skills. It is very different from anything else I’ve done, and I think readers will be really surprised by it all.”
“When I get a call from Cullen I don’t even read what he wants to propose to me, I immediately answer yes by default!” added Mutti. “Working with Cullen is like working on velvet, it’s like he reads my mind, he submits things to me that I love .. and he knows it! A Legacy of Violence is yet another test … a story full of horror and mystery, two key ingredients for a tight narrative full of twists! I’m the first reader and I’m always thrilled with every chapter! You will literally be nailed to the pages!”
A Legacy of Violence #1 is available for pre-order on the Mad Cave Studios website, in Previews July 20, 2022, and in your local comic book shop October 5, 2022.
