The Empties, Issue #3 by Kristen Renee Gorlitz
Zombies! Cannibalism! Body Horror! Love Triangle! Romance! …in the Apocalypse!
Their relationship was dead… until they ate each other alive!
When a housewife contracts a flesh-eating illness, she and her husband rekindle a love that is literally all-consuming!
A chef has a simple desire – he wants to be happy and he wants his wife to be happy too. But just because his wife has a roof over her head, it doesn’t mean that she’s happy or fulfilled. There’s something missing in her life, and even she can’t put a finger on what it is.That is, until that something starts eating her alive!
What is #GummyHorror you ask? GummyHorror is a subgenre of body horror where the body becomes gummy like. And so, for every dollar donated to this next campaign, I will destroy one gummy bear in honor of this gummyhorror story, The Empties!
The Empties #3 dives deeper into the sickness/ body horror that is spreading and it also starts to build the desperation and need to escape. That’s why we went with a suffocating gummy bear on the cover!
