COVER BY SHAWN MARTINBROUGH GEOFF JOHNS (W)/SHAWN MARTINBROUGH (P) ? THE SCOOP: Red-hot writer Geoff Johns (JSA) and penciler Shawn Martinbrough (Detective Comics) visit The House -- and shine a light into the darkest corners of the mutant experience! ? THE SET-UP: They are everywhere... but they belong nowhere. There is an urban legend circulating throughout America. One that began in New York many years ago. A tale of mutants so deviant and abhorrent, so freakish, that "normal" mutants call them outsiders. The creatures live below the streets of our cities, under the asphalt roads and electrical pipes, safe from Sentinel detection. These unfortunates are known as "the Morlocks." ? THE STORY: This is the tale of one of those groups -- a group whose members each hope to accomplish one last "wish" in the surface world before severing all ties with our society. Some of these men and women want to say good-bye to loved ones, others are looking for revenge. As paranoia grows and fear ignites, a city neighborhood in Chicago reveals what lengths "ordinary" people will go to eradicate these monsters. They are not heroes or villains. They are scared, cold and hungry... trying to stay out of the spotlight. The Morlocks want to exist. Nothing more. But humanity won't let them. And probably shouldn't. ?

They've left behind their homes... their jobs... their loved ones. But for the Morlocks, there are still scores to settle! And even as the outcasts say last goodbyes, their fragile alliance begins to fray -- and anti-mutant paranoia leads to the dispatching of Sentinels to Chicago! ?
