AMERICAN MONSTER Volume #1 / $14.99 / 121 pages / Color
Writer: Brian Azzarello
Artist/Colorist/Letterer/Cover Artist: Juan Doe
In a small Midwestern town, a large man with a horribly scarred face gets off a bus, and takes a room. He spooks the locals–nobody knows him–or do they? It’s impossible to say be-cause he seemingly has no face. The man’s intentions remain unknown, until he takes on a corrupt sheriff and the rural crew of racist arms dealers. The town’s impression of the man changes, and he’s seen as a hero…until his real intentions bubble to the surface. The man isn’t there to end the gang, but to take it over. And he’s just getting started.
From Brian Azzarello (BATMAN DKIII & 100 BULLETS) & JUAN DOE comes the series that HAD to be told at AFTERSHOCK.
