Sasha Vasnetsov would do anything to free his brother Gena from a work camp for the socially degenerate, including using a suicide bomb hidden in the last place any man would look. Sasha didn't want to use it. He wanted to use Maria Kamenaya, a warrior from a bygone apocalypse. Too bad she's more interested in flesh: eating it or laying with it, depending on the source. Sasha's on his own, out of luck, on a one-way the wrong detention camp. ????. Am I right?

From Steve Orlando (Batman/Shadow, Crude, Midnighter, Virgil) and Matthew Dow Smith (October Girl, Suicide Squad, X-Files) more

    The quest is joined to save a brother and certain technology will be needed. The story is absorbing, dropping the reader into a future Russia that's been destroyed by the Great Iron War. Characters are dramatic, real, and undeniably engaging. The visuals bring this story to life incredibly well, with the reader looking in the dark corners to see what may be lurking. Every element of this book is great. If you don't think comics are for adults, you haven't read this. Read Full Review

    Dead Kings #2 continues to build this story and this world, evoking things like Final Fantasy video games and documentaries about Siberia in the process. The real strength and potential of Dead Kings really shows through in the glimpses of the action storytelling and larger battles the story seems destined to include. Jump on now and get ready.
