Alien meets A Quiet Place in this science fiction tale of terror for fans of Josh Malerman’s Bird Boxand 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, Human Target) and breakout horror artist Sally Cantirino (I Walk With Monsters; Door to Door, Night by Night; The Final Girls).

"I read this at a gasp, horrifed 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
