Anne's Story, Issue 3 is the third issue for the Silent Hill comic Anne's Story published by IDW Publishing. It is written by Tom Waltz and illustrated by Tristan Jones.

The plot is focused on Anne Marie Cunningham and her perspective during Silent Hill: Downpour, rather than Murphy Pendleton.

In this issue of Anne's journey through Silent Hill, Anne relives her dark memories. It also reveals the fate of Anne and DJ Ricks after their sudden disappearance at the radio station.


Anne, now in front of a thrift shop, hears the voice of DJ Ricks sending another "dedication" to Murphy Pendleton through a radio. He also wishes Murphy would meet him in person and learn his secrets, as he says that he knows a way out of town.

She experiences a flashback during her time with Warden Leonard B. Trent and the death of her father, which angered her husband, due to her actions. She protested his complaints by saying that she could fix the problem.

However, a supposed 'statue' Doll jumps out of the thrift shop's front window, attacking her. Anne grabs a broken shard of glass and kills her, revealing a Prisoner Minion behind the Doll. Anne then grabs a baseball bat, hitting him hard in the face. Throughout the attack, Anne is haunted by the words of Warden Trent.

She experiences another flashback, when George Sewell calls her to tell her that he got Murphy  on a transfer to Maximum Wayside Prison in two weeks. Her anger elevates as she hears the name Murphy, as she wants revenge on his actions towards her father.

As the rain starts, Anne hears another broadcast from a radio, but this time, from a car, where DJ Ricks wants help and will be waiting at the radio station. Suddenly, a bloody corpse of a bull drops from the car. The manifestation of her father's memories are suddenly behind her. Anne, with shock asks her father who killed this animal. However, an unknown monster resembling Incubus stabs her with its horns.

Expecting her death, she wakes up in the radio station, where she hears Murphy and DJ Ricks discussing a way out of Silent Hill. She bashes through the radio station door, which shocks both Murphy and DJ Ricks in the process. She demands DJ Ricks give her the phone, only to have the line go dead. The glass to the radio station is smashed and several Screamers raid the radio station, leaving only Murphy.

Meanwhile, Anne and DJ Ricks find themselves in a large hanging cage, in front of the clock of the Centennial Building, with an unknown shadow on it.



A reference to the famous phrase from Silent Hill 2.

  • At the beginning of the comic, on a 'statue' Doll in the thrift shop is a note. One can read the famous phrase from Silent Hill 2, "There was a hole here, it's gone now".
  • Anne is seen wearing the Nurse Uniform in one of her flashbacks.
  • The end of the comic confirmed that DJ Ricks was still alive after the Screamers' raid in the radio station together with Anne.
