Absolution

    (Avatar, 2009)
™ and © Avatar Press, Inc.

(from the publisher)

You’ve seen Christos Gage’s work for Marvel, Wildstorm, IDW, and others, but you’ve never seen his imagination unleashed with absolutely no restrictions... until now.

ABSOLUTION introduces John Dusk, a superhero in a world where they’re a sanctioned arm of law enforcement. But this veteran hero has been scarred by his exposure to man’s infinite capacity for evil, and he’s seen one too many perpetrators escape justice. One day he crosses the line... lets a murderer die... and discovers it feels good. Surrounded by sociopaths, both human and superhuman, who he knows will prey on others if they’re not stopped — permanently — how far will he go, knowing every step he takes puts him further on a collision course with his teammates Alpha and The Servant, not to mention his homicide detective girlfriend?

Drawing on his experience writing for TV crime dramas like Law & Order: SVU, and his years of acclaimed work on comics like G.I. Joe: Cobra, StormWatch: PHD, and Avengers: The Initiative, Gage and artist Roberto Viacava bring you a riveting, no-punches-pulled saga that fans of shows like The Shield and Dexter, or comics such as Powers and Sleeper, won’t be able to put down. John Dusk just wants to be forgiven... but he doesn’t want to stop.
