The Unsound

The Unsound

A surreal horror story, following a young nurse who is caught in the middle of a strange supernatural conspiracy on her first day working for Saint Cascia Psychiatric Hospital.

IS THERE SUCH A THING AS SANITY?

Ever since she was little, all Ashli wanted was to help people. It’s why she went to nursing school, and it’s why she signed up for the vacant position at Saint Cascia, despite the psychiatric hospital’s less-than-sterling reputation. But when strange occurrences begin in the midst of her very first day on the job—razor blades scattered through the halls, a patient named Xerxes always hidden behind a makeshift mask, and a brutal riot initiated by the inmates—Ashli is forced to escape through the labyrinthine bowels of the asylum to not only help her fellow nurses…but to save herself. 

Eisner Award-nominated writer Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Empty Man) is joined by brilliant newcomer artist Jack T. Cole for The Unsound, a surreal psychological horror series that will have you questioning what it is to truly be crazy…

  • Derek Royal

    I was intrigued by this book, and it's a good -- the kind of horror I've come to expect from Bunn -- but by the time I got to the end, I could help but think that this was the beginning of a "thicker"...

    Intriguing, compelling and intense; the artwork dutifully represents the grim and shaky profundity of the deeper questions inherent in the journey it details....

  • Adam Stone

    If you enjoy horror books for their randomness, and how there is no real narrative logic to anything, just a general aura of creepiness, then this might be a book for you. Events happen because horror...

    Excellent immersive read, I found myself re-reading each chapter because I was so eager to find out what happened that I rushed. It's a surreal journey through extreme mental illness from several pers...

  • Darcy Roar

    Creepy and bleak (though that seems to be the point). I really liked the color shifts & the weird mythology of the world, but it's like we've dipped a pinky-toe into the world rather than gotten a ful...

    I’m actually marking this one down a little because it’s only a single volume. I wish it could have been a longer running series that explored its themes more thoroughly.I mean, I love an anthropo...

  • Jamie Connolly

    Better than I thought it would be for sure. Different take on a common plot. Well conceived too. A lot of the art was hit or miss I thought. But some of the frames, and especially the covers, were dow...

  • Rebecca

    Really cool visuals. It’s very similar to legion and American horror story asylum. So kind of the standard psychological horror in a mental hospital setting but I like that stuff so I dig this graph...
