In the pages of The Unsound, readers have ventured into the depths of Saint Cascia Psychiatric Hospital with Ashli Granger, a brand-new nurse at the archaic facility. Things quickly took a turn for the worse, and the entire hospital has been turned on its head, leaving Ashli fighting for her life and unsure of what’s really going on. Will she ever escape? What is her connection to the so-called Prince of Fools? Is she—and what is—the Mother of Blades?

Clearly, your sanity isn’t the only thing this bone-chilling comic leaves you questioning.

We’ll be getting even more questions—and hopefully a few answers—next week when the fear-inducing fifth issue of The Unsound hits shelves, and we have your first look right here! In our second exclusive BOOM! Studios horror preview of the week, we get to see the terrifying events unfold as Ashli continues to peel back the layers of the hospital’s history, and of her own mind. And tries not to die in the process.

The series is written by a modern master of horror comics, Cullen Bunn, with astonishingly atmospheric art by Jack T. Cole, whose stunning cover can be seen below, followed by the publisher’s solicitation and the exclusive 5-page preview in the gallery.

Ashli and the remaining survivors try to escape the asylum before insanity envelops them all. But there are stronger forces that won’t let them leave—forces that will reveal age-old secrets about the Prince of Fools and Ashli’s role in the growing madness.
