Comixology Originals announced Cullen Bunn and John Bivens are teaming for Retroverse, a new sci-fi horror series for the digital publisher.
“After a wild, drunken party, 19-year-old Kacy Martin wakes up in an alternate universe—one where she has been dead for 13 years,” said Bunn in a press release from Comixology. “She must navigate the heartbreaking waters of a world that seems to have turned out much better without her in it. And she must do so while wielding newly discovered, terrifying abilities against alien horrors.”
“I’m pretty sure when Cullen and I started talking about this project, he knew I worked as a butcher for years before working full time as a comic artist,” added Bivens in the same press release. “Because of that, it makes sense to design realities connected by muscles, organs, and viscera… and my goal is to make the reader think that what they are looking at is squishy.”
In the series, Kacy must convince her boyfriend T.J. and BFF Krissy that she is who she says she is and traverse this new and scary reality-where she’s not supposed to be alive-and all that comes with it. Is it a nightmare or was she made for this?
“This is a project I’ve had in mind for quite some time,” said Bunn. “While talking with John about potentially working together, I realized he loved weird horror/sci-fi/monster mash-ups as much as I did, and I threw the idea for Retroverse his way. We’re thrilled to have the series available from Comixology Originals.”
Retroverse #1 arrives on December 13, 2022.
