The Heretic

 HERG   (Dark Horse, 1996-1997)

™ and ©Joseph Phillips

The Heretic was a former member of the Allegiance, a super-hero group. During a battle with a cross-dressing villain called Mister Sister (a strange takeoff on Two-Face), Heretic’s wife, Nike, was killed. Since then, he’s sought final vengeance for her death. Indeed, his resignation from the Allegiance came when they stole his opportunity to kill his hated enemy.

Now working solo, he continues to track Mister Sister, but more important matters are about to intervene. Sister has been working for a woman named Apocrypha, and managed to steal an artifact which holds the secret to nearly unlimited power. Heretic is hot on her trail, but he is not alone on his quest. He is soon joined by an angel, a devil, and a psychotic voodoo practitioner who are either the key to Heretic’s salvation—or the means of his death!
