Inspired by Tango Gameworks’ bloodcurdling survival horror series, The Evil Within, this hotly anticipated comics sequel takes readers on a heart-pounding journey. Following the traumatizing events that took place at the Beacon Mental Hospital, Detective Sebastian Castellanos finds himself pulled into investigating yet another gruesome murder. This time, with his daughters life possibly at stake, Castellanos is searching for clues in everything.

While surveying a crime scene rumored to be the cause of “The Nursery Rhyme Killer,” Castellanos finds a sinister note that just reads: “Daddy, help.” Invigorated by the discovery of the note, Castellanos turns to his boss for help. Unfortunately, the only thing the Chief offers him is a truth he can’t bear to hear, let alone comprehend. But as this comic pulls you deeper into its mind-bending environments, the line between what’s real and what isn’t grows blurred by the second.

Those unfamiliar with the game may find the storyline a bit disorienting in the beginning, but it all comes together as you continue reading. Ryan O’Sullivan has created an exceptional mystery full of intrigue and horror, while the imagery by Damian Wyrm and Szymon Kudranski will haunt your dreams.
