The Dark Ages Begin Again…
An enigmatic 11th century Knight has come to render terrible justice on the citizens of 21st century San Francisco.

Putting together the pieces of the Knight’s mysteriously brutal puzzle is the voluptuous Venus Kostopikas, a fact checker for a dying newspaper who has aspirations to rise above her station and lead her own crusade.

This first of two skull-crushing, re-mastered volumes collects-for the first time-the macabre Vertigo crime series by noted creators STEVEN T. SEAGLE (it’s a bird…, SOUL KISS, Sandman Mystery Theater) and KELLY JONES (Sandman, Batman, The 13th Son).
