Trade Paperbacks[]

  • The Empty Man - Collects vol. 1 #1-6. "It's been one year since the first reported case of the Empty Man disease, and no drug has been able to slow its progress. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, suicidal dementia, followed by death, or a near lifeless, "empty" state of catatonia. As murder cults rise nationwide, the FBI and CDC enter a joint investigation of the Empty Man, hoping to piece together clues to stop the cult and uncover a cure." - MAY151111 - WorldCat - ISBN 9781608867202 - Kindle
  • The Empty Man: Recurrence - Collects vol. 2 #1-4. "The nation is in the grip of a terrible pandemic. The so-called Empty Man disease causes insanity and violence. Government quarantines are mandatory. One of the afflicted is Melissa Kerry, and the next step should be to quarantine her.but those who enter quarantine are never seen again. Melissa's family won't let that happen. All they have to do is care for her, keep her worsening condition a secret. And they'll do anything, trust anyone, to keep her safe." - MAR191286 - WorldCat - ISBN 9781684153565 - Kindle - (forthcoming, July 2019)
  • The Empty Man: Manifestation - Collects vol. 2 #5-8. "The Empty Man has gone viral—not just pathologically, but also through the airwaves as cultists broadcast their “message” of indoctrination to all within range of a television. Agents Jensen & Marsh must escort the Kerry family outside the city limits, shielding them from quarantine crews and the cults looking to bring the infected Melissa into their ranks." - JUL191338 - WorldCat - ISBN 9781684154319 - (forthcoming, November 2019)
