The Remaining (2014) – By Jason S. Lockard

Sony Affirm Films has just released the end-times thriller The Remaining in theaters at the time of this writing! Kingstone Comics was commissioned to produce a graphic novel based on this film. Lets take a look at this graphic novel!

The Remaining follows a group of friends who are apart of ‘The Remaining’ after the event described in the bible as the Rapture. These and many others experience the horrific events that follow including demon locusts described in Revelation 9.

Where most graphic novels based on films add more to the story, writer Roland Mann stays true to the story portrayed in the movie! Than there is the artwork of Kyle Hotz. The horrific illustrations in this graphic novel take you right into the tale. This book is a page turner. From the moment I started I couldn’t put it down until I finished it.

This is a scary event that many believe will take place in the near future. You don’t want to be one of The Remaining! Will there be a part 2? It certainly could because there is much more in the book of Revelation to tell!

This graphic novel would make an awesome addition to anyone’s comic book horror collection. While there is no bad language or suggestive content. The scary images are something not the kids, but teens and adults will love it. I highly recommend you head over to and find out how to get your copy today!
