Dark Horse announces ‘Parasomnia’ #1 by Cullen Bunn and Andrea Mutti

Cullen Bunn and Andrea Mutti bring nightmares to life in ‘Parasomnia’ this June.

Press Release

Dark Horse Comics has announced a new series from Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, Cyberpunk 2077 Trauma Team) and Andrea Mutti (Prometheus, Starship Down), alongside letterer Simon Bowland. The four-issue series launches on June 30, 2021, and is what Bunn says, “is the beginning of what could be a long fantasy epic full of heroes and villains, mystery and horror.”

So what’s it about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

After the disappearance of his son, one man becomes a captive in a nightmarish dreamscape in order to find him. As dreams and reality blur together in growing panic, a ruthless cult seeks to break down the barrier even further and rule the land of dreams. Can our hero and his son return to the real world, or will they be trapped forever in limbo?

“Parasomnia is an eerie dark fantasy adventure. Part of it is set in our world–the waking world–and part of it is set… someplace else. A land of ruthless highwaymen and forgotten gods and fierce monsters. It’s a little bit sword and sorcery, a little bit mystery, a little horror, and a whole lot of action-adventure,” Bunn said via press release.

Check out covers by Mutti and variant cover by Rafael Albuquerque below.

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (March 19, 2021)—From acclaimed horror creators Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, Cyberpunk 2077 Trauma Team) and Andrea Mutti (Prometheus, Starship Down), alongside letterer Simon Bowland, comes the new nightmare-invoking miniseries Parasomnia.

After the disappearance of his son, one man becomes a captive in a nightmarish dreamscape in order to find him. As dreams and reality blur together in growing panic, a ruthless cult seeks to break down the barrier even further and rule the land of dreams. Can our hero and his son return to the real world, or will they be trapped forever in limbo?

“Parasomnia is an eerie dark fantasy adventure. Part of it is set in our world–the waking world–and part of it is set… someplace else. A land of ruthless highwaymen and forgotten gods and fierce monsters. It’s a little bit sword and sorcery, a little bit mystery, a little horror, and a whole lot of action-adventure.

This is the beginning of what could be a long fantasy epic full of heroes and villains, mystery and horror. It really is a story that you can’t predict, because it can go anywhere. And I’m excited for readers to take the first steps along this path with us!” – Cullen Bunn

“In an apparently normal world, a desperate man, a woman searching for her missing son and a diabolical group of cultists hiding a terrible secret wander around. The world, when awake, seems full of colors…but as soon as the lights go out and you fall asleep, a different world appears from the shadows and only the man with no name can lead us out of the nightmare.”—Andrea Mutti

Parasomnia #1 (of four) arrives June 30, 2021, and is available for pre-order now through your local comic shop. Variant cover by Rafael Albuquerque.
