Something unspeakable is coming to this devastated planet.

Uber Vol. 4
Kieron Gillen, Caanan White, Gabriel Andrade
With the realization that the Nazis have pulled far ahead of the Allies in development of Ubers, hope starts to fade and some greater gambles are taken in hopes of turning the tide. Desperation is the currency of the hour with no end in sight to the horrors of enhanced human warfare. The German war machine has been developing the most powerful weapons ever fashioned. Their Battleship class Ubers are like living atom bombs annihilating every obstacle in their paths. But they were once humans, and it takes more than power to make a monster, so what could have forged such cold, murderous beasts?
The past is revealed with the genesis of the German Battleships in this groundbreaking alternate history war story. Kieron Gillen, Daniel Gete, and Caanan White spin a new chapter of fear and genocide in the pages of the most devastating war comic being published.

And Justin Jordan locks us in our nightmares with a visceral tale that takes us to Federal Prison. Jesse Bullock is not a good man, but a very hard man. Down for armed robbery and assault, the only crimes they were able to prove, he has but one good quality: he loves his cousin Otis.

But that job gets much harder when the Crossed spread inside those escape-proof walls!
