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.


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, Enigma, Shade the Changing Man, Hellblazer) and breakout horror artist Sally Cantirino (I Walk With Monsters, The Final Girls).

Collects the entire eight-issue series.



A Question to the author…

What would you like readers to know about your book and the characters?

This book was born out of Peter’s observations of how human interactions changed as a result of COVID precautions at the beginning of the pandemic, and I drew this series during the second year of the pandemic. It’s a horror book, but it’s also a pandemic book. It’s got big monsters and lots of gore, but it’s also about the ways different people handle trauma, loss, grief, and fear, and how we all intersect and affect each others’ lives with our actions. The pandemic saw a rise in grifters and greed, people preying on fear and desperation to boost their profits or political standing or clout on the internet. It has tested relationships between friends or family members or romantic partners. We’re going to be processing the loss of life, of community, of trust for a very long time.



Meet 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
