Format: B&W, 32 pages, monthly, 2 of 3

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Steven Grant's horrific crime masterpiece continues.

The dead run the world -- and they hate us! We can't tell them apart from

the living but police detective Eric Sharpe can, ever since he got "the

sight," and he's convinced they're not real and he's gone insane. And he

killed the only woman who could change his mind. Fortunately, her ghost is

haunting him. Unfortunately, her presence has made Sharpe's grip on

reality that much more tenuous. Will he listen to her and learn the true

history of the world before the husks of the dead tear him apart? Praise

for Steven Grant comes from no less a maestro than Warren Ellis who says,

"Lots of people can write stories that tug at your heart or make you smile.

Only Steven Grant can write stories that punch you in the face and steal

your keys. He remains the best crime writer in comics."
