I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the HUMAN REMAINS Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Perfect for the Halloween season, Human Remains is a dark tale about an otherworldy invasion that attacks the core of what makes people human – their emotions. Any strong emotion begins to draw out dangerous creatures that kill in an instant. Among the chaos, a diverse cast of characters tries to make sense of this new world while also trying to fend off the invasion and bring things back to normal.
Brilliantly illustrations and beautifully colored, Human Remains brings this devastating new world to life. The bright colors and pink hues throughout somehow highlight the terror. It’s a great read for those who love gory horror comics. Highly recommended! Check out my post to learn more and make sure to enter the giveaway!

Alien meets A Quiet Place in this science fiction tale of terror for fans of Josh Malerman’s Bird Box and Tim Lebbon’s The Silence about a post-apocalyptic world in which monsters hunt the things that make us human – where feeling is a dangerous thing.
Live. Laugh. Love. Scream.
Dax and Bisa love each other. But in this new and terrifying world, love is dangerous. Feeling anything is dangerous. Love. Hate. Joy. Fear. Any of these in strong doses will bring a swift death. Earth has a new and terrible invader—monsters that smell the scent of emotion, salivate over the prey, and hunt the very feelings that make us human. A shocking tale of pent-up emotions and forced composure in the face of unspeakable horror…from one of the most celebrated writers in comics, Peter Milligan (X-Force, Enigma, Shade the Changing Man, Hellblazer) and breakout horror artist Sally Cantirino (I Walk With Monsters, The Final Girls).
Collects the entire eight-issue series.
“I read this at a gasp, horrified by the bloody events as much as the too-familiar feel of a society self-destructing–even before the monsters come. A palpitating whirlwind of a start.” — Daniel Kraus (New York Times bestselling author of The Shape of Water, Trollhunters, The Teddies Saga, and Vault Comics’ The Autumnal)
“As brilliant and incisive as ever, Peter Milligan questions what makes us human, and what motivates us to make the terrible decisions we inevitably make.”- Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Eternals; The Wicked + The Divine; Once & Future)
“Human Remains might be the scariest Vault series to date.” – Gate Crashers
“a brutal, visceral, soul crushing world where the barest hint of emotion can lead to a violent and bloody death.” — Multiversity Comics
About Peter Milligan
Peter Milligan is a legendary British writer of comics, film, and television. One of Entertainment Weekly’s “it” writers of the early 2000s, Peter Milligan was at the forefront of the revolution in comics which were created for a more sophisticated, adult audience.
Shade the Changing Man for Vertigo offered a skewered look at American culture, while Enigma, Face, The Extremist, and Rogan Gosh pushed the boundaries of what comic books could do. Milligan was the longest-running writer of the cult horror comic Hellblazer, and his take on Human Target inspired the TV series. For Marvel, the hugely-popular X-Statix was a radical reworking of the X-Man paradigm, described by Kevin Smith (CLERKS etc) as “the most well-observed scholarly analysis of media-manipulation filtered through a pop-culture lens ever committed to the page”.
Milligan is the screenwriter of Pilgrim AKA Inferno (2000) and An Angel For May (2002) and currently is the co-creator and writer of Human Remains for Vault Comics
