Cullen Bunn and Mark Torres explore “Cold Spots” with Image this summer

Have you ever gotten a chill, or felt a sudden drop in temperature that makes you feel like something isn’t quite right?  Folklore has long posited that these “cold spots” indicate the presence of ghosts or other spirits.  With those claims in mind, writer Cullen Bunn and artist Mark Torres have united with Image Comics for the new series Cold Spots, a supernatural thriller that explores the impact of this phenomenon.

COLD SPOTS—A CHILLING NEW HORROR SERIES SET TO BE THE HOTTEST READ OF THE SUMMER
PORTLAND, OR, 05/25/2018 — Psychological terror, the undead, and a supernaturally bitter cold come together in this spine-tingling new series, COLD SPOTS, from Cullen Bunn (REGRESSION, Harrow County) and Mark Torres (Zombies vs. Robots: Undercity) launching from Image Comics this August.

Ten years ago, Dan Kerr turned his back on his wife and unborn daughter. Now, both mother and child have gone missing, and Dan must face cosmic terrors to find them again. He soon finds that ghosts stir when his estranged daughter is near. And as the dead grow restless, the cold deepens in… COLD SPOTS.

“The idea of a sudden drop in temperature accompanying the manifestation of spirits has always fascinated me,” said Bunn. “With Cold Spots, I couple that idea with a tale of very personal loss and dread. As the dead surround Dan and his missing child, the cold takes on a deadly, terrifying ‘life’ of its own.”

Cold Spots  #1 will hit comic shops on August 22.
