Acclaimed writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four, Angel: Revelations) gives the apocalyptical novel new life with beautiful interiors from the Eisner-nominated artist, Mike Perkins (Captain America, House of M: Avengers).Â As the unseen killing super-flu, Captain Trips, spreads disease and death across the country, the US government has taken a keen interest in Stuart Redman, who seems to be the only person immune to the Captain Trips infection.Â With or without Stu’s cooperation, they are determined to find out why!Â Then, in Maine, something terrible falls upon Frannie Goldsmith and her father! In New York City, out of 8 million people, pop-star Larry Underwood may be the only one still alive!Â And Nick Andros runs into more trouble than he can handle when he makes a wrong turn in Shoyo, Arkansas!
