Violent Messiahs TPB (2002 Image) comic books
Image Edition - Volume 1 - 1st printing. "The Book of Job!" Written by Joshua D.M. Dysart. Art and cover by Tone Rodriguez. A mysterious door hides something old and alive. A hyper-violent sentinel prowls the streets. A serial killer leaves only a poem for a clue. A female cop tries desperately to understand how it all connects. Welcome to Rankor Island, a carnival of social ills. Into this wasteland come two men, saviors for a nihilistic age, the serial killer "Family Man" and the hyper-violent vigilante "Citizen Pain". Now Lieutenant Cheri Major (an outcast amongst her peers) and Detective Earnest Houston (a perpetual screw-up) must follow the clues into the heart of a great house where a mysterious door hides the truth... to everything. In June 2002 Image will release the long awaited Violent Messiahs trade paperback. The hefty tomb entitled "THE BOOK OF JOB" will collect the exciting first 8-issue story arc, including a bonus of previously unpublished art. Image Comics is proud to unleash the cult hit that could only be described as a genre bending, theological, sci-fi love story about criminal politics, the nature of violence and man's search for individuality. Softcover, 224 pages, full color. Cover price $24.95.
