Something is Killing the Children meets The Goonies! Eisner Award winning writer Kelly Thompson (Captain Marvel, Jem and the Holograms) re-teams with superstar artist Mattia De Iulis for their first creator-owned work together.

The Cull is a dark tale about five friends setting off in the middle of the night to shoot a short film on a forbidden rock near their small coastal town the summer before they all go their separate ways. But they're not really there to shoot a film. One of them has lied. And that lie will change EVERYTHING.

The Cull #1-#5

Early praise for The Cull:

"A breathtaking work of beauty, tension, emotion, and mystery. This is the kind of story that stays with you for years to come." —
Matthew RosenbergWhat's the Furthest Place from Here?

The Cull builds a world of characters in small, intricate details that invite the reader to dive deeper, and then—in one quick motion, like magic—opens the whole puzzle box out to infinite size. Intriguing story, spectacular art, and most importantly giant crabs—I recommend getting in on the ground floor.” —Al EwingWe Only Find Them When They're Dead, Immortal Hulk

"I thought I was in front of the TV...the outstanding art by Mattia De Iulis let the reader have a full immersive experience, while the script by Kelly Thompson introduce you to a new and extraordinary journey. If you read it and you hear sounds from pages, don't worry, it's just the magic of this book." —
Elena CasagrandeBlack Widow, Catwoman

“Astonishing. Gritty and lyrical at the same time. I’m going to keep it simple. Quite possibly the best first issue you’ll read this year.” —
Gail SimoneClean Room, Batgirl

“Simultaneously new and familiar, modern and traditional—
The Cull hits that tonal sweet spot that promises a hit series. And considering the talent on board, I’m not at all surprised. Add this one to the pull!” —Kelly Sue DeConnickBitch Planet, Wonder Woman Historia

The Cull, Kelly Thompson and Mattia De Iulis have crafted an absolutely gripping tale. Thompson is the master of writing characters you instantly care about, and every character who sets out on this journey clearly has a personal story that I can't wait to see revealed. I have no idea what the hell is going on with the shocking revelations of Black Water Beach, but I can't wait to find out." —Tom TaylorNeverlanders, Nightwing

The Cull is Kelly, Mattia, and their entire team at the top of their game. It’s everything you could want out of the first issue of a comic—it gets its beautiful hooks in deep. I’m dying for the next chapter.” —Gerry DugganX-Men, Dark Room

“You won’t believe you’re reading a comic book as this live-action movie leaps to life on the page. If there’s one book out there right now to totally immerse yourself in, it’s 
The Cull.” —Chris ReffertyLucifer, Cobra Kai
