Writer Mark Sable makes his AfterShock debut this February with a new title he describes as a spiritual sequel to his Image Comics' title Graveyard of Empires.
"It's a similarly extensively-researched mix of military and horror fiction that asks deep questions about the War on Terror," said Sable.
Sable is working with artist Maan Housse on this project, which is about a special forces unit which hunts down fantasy monsters in the real world.
"Godkillers is war/horror fiction about an elite special forces unit tasked with hunting down insurgents who are using mythological creatures as weapons of mass destruction," explained series writer Mark Sable in a statement.

Abdul Alhazred is an Arab-American folklore professor turned soldier whose fear of death stems from uncertainty about the existence of an afterlife. Then he joins THE GODKILLERS, a special forces unit tasked with fighting insurgents who use mythological creatures as weapons of mass destruction. Now that he knows the supernatural exists, he'll have to decide which is worse—death or the nightmarish monsters he thought were mere legends.
From writer Mark Sable (Grounded, Fearless, Supergirl) and newcomer artist Maan House, GODKILLERS is a monster story for the modern age.
