Announcing THE SICKNESS, from Lonnie Nadler, Jenna Cha, Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou and Uncivilized Books

Feeling sick? The Man may be following you...

A teenager in 1945 is suffocated by post-WWII nationalism. A tireless doctor in 1955 desperately tries to find the origin of a new illness. A Korean immigrant in 1965 struggles to adapt to American life. Though these people are living seemingly disparate lives, decades apart, they will come to understand that their fates are irrevocably intertwined by a rare, horrifying sickness and an enigmatic figure who follows wherever they go. He is known only as The Man. Confined within their eras, they each race against time to escape The Man and find a cure before The Sickness collapses their worlds. This rich and disturbing comic spans four decades of American history to serve as a reminder that the terrors of yesterday are the terrors of today. A sprawling, ambitious, and genre-bending work exploring the socio-political strife that shaped the nation. It’s the crossbreed of I Love Lucy-era pop culture and bizarre body horror in a historical horror epic.

And it's coming for you on June 14.

But that's not all we have for you. Nadler was kind enough to send over a couple variant covers and some interior pages for us to share with you. Keep scrolling for a sneak peek!
