THE DAMNED #1
(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Brian Hurtt (C) Bill Crabtree
Age Rating: Mature, 16+ Genre: Crime, Fantasy
In a Prohibition-era world where demonic princes pull the strings that make crime families dance, Eddie is a mortal with two things working for him.
First of all, he can’t die. Well, he can and does, quite often, but he doesn’t stay down for long. Second, Eddie runs the Gehenna Room, a nightclub with a strict “no demons allowed” policy. But blessings and curses don’t look all that different these days, and failing to tell the two apart can get a guy killed–over and over again in Eddie’s case.
So when one of Eddie’s old pals shows up seeking sanctuary, Eddie knows he’s in for a double-cross, and that means walking the line between salvation and damnation once more.
The first issue arrives on May 3, 2017 and has a cover price of $1.00.
