New story arc for anti-apocalypse tale CANNIBAL coming this May

The second story arc kicks off with issue #5

New York Times bestselling writer Brian Buccellato (SONS OF THE DEVIL, The Flash, Injustice), co-writer Jennifer Young, and artist Matías Bergara (Sons of Anarchy) will dive into a new story arc in their ongoing southern-fried horror series CANNIBAL this May.

In the small Everglades town of Willow, the cannibal pandemic has only just begun. Told through the eyes of the Hansen family, it’s an anti-apocalypse story about a community that’s just too damn stubborn to give in.

In CANNIBAL #5, folks come to grips with the reality of cannibals, and Jolene’s fate is revealed.

CANNIBAL #5 (Diamond code: MAR170697) hits comic book stores Wednesday, May 10th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 17th.

Select praise for CANNIBAL:

“Entertaining through and through.” —Comicosity

“CANNIBAL, both visually and textually, offers a unique twist to the human-eat-human genre.” —Rogues Portal

“Offers backwoods terror more in line with the gritty depravity of Deliverance than the B-movie schlock of The Hills Have Eyes.” —Paste Magazine

“CANNIBAL transcends the basic zombie story we all know and love, delving into the more complex, emotional, and moral side of cannibalism—the human side, if you will—through an ensemble cast of characters residing in the sleepy, Southern Gothic setting of Willow, Florida (now a ghost town in real life).” —SlackJaw Punks

“This is southern brewed horror with a dose of heartbreak.” —Horror Talk
