Comic Books


Consistently a step ahead of the Centers for Disease Control, elderly pawnbroker Abraham Setrakian seems to have an intimate knowledge of the epidemic rapidly spreading across New York City and the hideous creatures it’s spawning. How does he know what’s happening? Where did he learn about the grotesque monsters roaming the streets at night? And, most importantly, does he know how to stop them?

The scope of the mystery widens as the man who seemingly has all the answers reveals his history in the extermination camps of Nazi-occupied Poland and his first encounter with the beast behind Manhattan’s invasion.

  1. For some reason, I only picked up the first issue. I just reread it and I’m sorry I did not keep up.

  2. See if you can find the other issues. This has been a great adaptation and it’s rare that we see really great horror comics and this one really is great. I was disappointed by the break between issues but the art is super good and I’m amazed and how well Lapham is adapting/streamlining the book so well.

  3. I’m glad that this is great, hopefully the rest will be good as well. Then i’m definitely getting the trade
