Is there a way to show epics that have no linked Issues?

We often add an Epic to a project as a reminder and want to build a filter of all epics that have no Issues associated to them. 

I was thinking of a few ways to do this in a cross tab, but having trouble building the query. Seemed like linkedIssue is Empty would be a good way to go, but JQL doesnt seem to like that.

Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks!

Hi Larry,

The query that can be used is this (requires the script runner plugin):

issuetype=Epic and issueFunction not in hasLinkType("Epic-Story Link")

This will show all the epics that don't have any issues associated to them.
