Welcome to Silent Hill, a seemingly-abandoned mist-enshrouded town where a little bit of Hell has come to Earth... and wants to say "hello".
Christabella, a force of unimaginable evil locked in the form of an eight year-old girl, has been made truly alive. Cut her, and she bleeds. She hungers- and not for souls, but for messy hamburgers and fries. It's the greatest nightmare possible for this living dead girl.
Scheming to take back all the power that was once hers- and more- Christabella strikes a bargain with Lenora, a witch who molds and shapes the fate of Silent Hill in place of Christabella's big sister, Lauryn.
Lenora has an agenda of her own, a plan that centers on Hollywood actor and icon Kenneth Carter, a man who secretly harbors many torments of his own. And to rescue the one he loves, he has just stepped willingly unto the streets of damnation itself...
From here, there may be no turning back.
Kenneth starts remembering how he could enter the world that now surrounds him (a painting, he thinks, granted him a door to that world). He misses his dog, Bear. But now he's got companion, a little girl he found all alone in that town. Now together, Kenneth and Christabella walk through the streets of Silent Hill. There are a lot of creatures around them, though surprisingly they don't attack. Still, Kenneth thinks they've got to find somewhere they can hide before any of the monsters reacts and starts following them. Some places are ruled out for he feels danger inside (Brookhaven Hospital and Alchemilla Hospital) based on dreams and paintings he's seen before. As they keep walking they find what looks like an abandoned movie theater; there can be food inside, so they walk in.
Everything is quiet and calmed down there. In an office Kenneth finds some photos and documents relatives to his past. He and Christabella enter the auditorium, where they find people sitting there, apparently watching nothing. They sit too for the curtains start opening as soon as they arrive to the room. The girl receives some kind of messages from around her, revealing that the innocent look she has is nothing but a carcass, and her task was leading Kenneth there. Then the show starts; to Kenneth's unease, it looks like a propagandistic movie about Silent Hill starring him ("The future", says Christabella when he asks "What is this?").
He wants to go out of there but then a woman appears on the screen: Connie Mills, an ex-girlfriend Kenneth's been looking for since Lenora pushed him into this reality. Connie tells Kenneth why he is there and shows him what's been happening in the real world: his actual girlfriend, Jessica, has been murdered. She has an axe crushed into her head, and on the wall there's an incriminating blood-written text, making Kenneth responsible for the murdering.
As he tries to deny it, Connie's appearance starts to change, her eyes bleeding. Then Kenneth recognizes her: it's Lenora who's been tricking him. She is trying to use him for her own plans of a new world... Another character enters then, Troy Abernathy, in a monstrous form; he's come to take his revenge on Christabella. As Kenneth is with her he's got to die too. Troy opens Kenneth's eyes first about the world surrounding them and the part Lenora is playing in it. When he tries to attack them, Christabella stops him with a spell that leaves her exhausted. Taking advantage of the situation, with Troy paralyzed, Kenneth takes Christabella (Lenora seemed afraid of her and he wants to use it) and gets out of the theater. Lenora sends the monsters behind them. When everything seems lost, someone new comes to scene: Ike Isaacs, who made the paintings of Silent Hill, appears with Kenneth's dog, Bear, ready to help them and raise some hell.
At the end of Issue 2 Kenneth and Christabella meet Ike Isaacs while running away from the creatures. Ike is the creator of the paintings about Silent Hill that Kenneth has in the real world. With him is Bear, Kenneth's missing dog. Now, with Ike's weaponry and the child's powers, the four of them dispatch the horde of monsters coming after Kenneth and Christabella. During the battle, she notices how Kenneth changes when he's fighting (he shows a violent, thirsty for blood face she likes). Meanwhile, in the real world, Jessica Aldrich's autopsy reveals she wasn't killed by the axe wound; someone, or something, ate her. The story focuses now on Connie Mills, kidnapped and unable to speak because of the witch Lenora, who retains her. Connie is described here as "the empty vessel", soon to be filled, though Lenora doesn't say with what (or by who). She talks about Kenneth as "he who waits", too. On Silent Hill, the kid and the two men share a little talk: Ike tells them he's there because Lauryn LaRoache sent him to find an object and give it to Kenneth. Lauryn already told him about Christabella, too, and his mistrust towards her is blatant along the story. Christabella tells them then about a book that they could use to stop Lenora; the book that gave the power to her sister Lauryn. So the group decide to find whatever object Ike's got to take and the book to fight Lenora. As they walk they find themselves in the middle of a festival made in honor of Lenora ("the anointed one"); a festival of blood, creatures and gore everywhere. Ike obtains the item he was sent to find: a powerful knife, that is said to be a stealer of souls. Ike cuts himself accidentally and the blood attracts the monsters towards them. Once again, they fight, and Kenneth's appearance changes as well into a more sadistic one. Lenora makes her entry now, pleased to see the violent side of Kenneth.
She offers him the chance to know the truth about his past and tells him what's been happening in the real world: Kenneth has murdered another person, maybe two (the detective investigating Jessica's murder and the pathologist who made the autopsy), that making three killings by his hands. And that's what she wants, so he can be her (and her superiors's) emissary in the real world. She also reveals Connie, chained to a wooden structure with a giant clock and under a spell that holds her "hollow", lacking of soul and mind. Lenora gives then Kenneth an ultimatum: he has to choose one victim between Christabella, Connie and Bear or else the three will die. He only has until midnight to decide.
Lenora the witch forces Kenneth Carter to choose one of his three companions to be killed: his dog Bear, the child Christabella LaRoache, or his ex-girlfriend Connie Mills, giving him until midnight, or else she will kill the three of them. Lenora suggest him to kill Christabella, wich makes the child rebel and attack Lenora; she can't kill her but it gives her time to run away. Bear escapes, too, leaving only Connie to be sacrificed. Sick and tired of it all, Kenneth refuses to kill Connie, cutting her chains and freeing her instead. In the real world, a witness is talking with someone at WTM Media about the crime she saw: Kenneth Carter murdering two people. She's been prepared by this person before she talks with the police. As that person tells her, his name is Whately.
Meanwhile, in Silent Hill, Christabella is lured by a boy to a jazz club. Once inside, the boy transforms into Troy Abernathy, who is still seeking revenge upon Christabella. She finds herself trapped in the club. Lenora has found Bear and tries to kill him, but the dog gets hold of the Keris Dagger she has and runs away with the knife. Lenora is about to be summoned by her boss.
Kenneth keeps walking through Silent Hill, and arrives to Lauryn's house, where Christabella told him she kept the book that gave Lauryn the power to reign over the Otherworld. Inside the house he meets the "victims" he killed in the real world: his girlfriend Jessica and the cop investigating the death of Jessica. Kenneth sees what they really are, mirages built to distract and use him. He makes his way to the room where the book is, finding someone familiar in there.
In the club, Troy is interrupted in his vengeance by Connie, who appears in a possessed state ("the empty vessel has been filled").
Lenora, in her superior's presence, is unmasked: she's actually Lauryn LaRoache.
