The second volume of this hit AfterShock series starts here!
The year is 1353. The fugitive Roderick Helms has retreated to a life of hidden seclu-sion after failing to expose the Church's role in the Black Death. But something threat-ens to bring him back into action. Something that has risen which will threaten to trans-form the waning plague into a far more darker and sinister crisis. And that something is none other than Satan himself!
Written by the master of violence, gore, and mayhem, Frank Tieri (Harley Quinn, Marvel vs Capcom, Wolverine, Deadpool), with spectacular art from illustrator Oleg Okunev, and covers by Eisner Award- more

    Pestilence: A Story of Satan ups the ante considerably from the first series. This was already an epic story with horrors big and small. Writer Frank Tieri is taking it to the next level here and he's pulling no punches. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Sean Nickerson Jun 1, 2018

    Pestilence: A Story of Satan issue#1 is AWESOME! It is just as dark, gritty and beautiful as the previous installment. It introduces Satan into the story in a very vile, disturbing way that is sure to intensify this amazing story and even bolder new ways. Read Full Review

    The plague has returned and three men must join together to try and stop it. The story is fun, weaving in classic historical settings with zombie outbreaks. The introduction of a new antagonist could make this series more epic than the previous saga. The artwork is as killer as the zombies that populate this tale. There is so much goodness in each panel that it's a spectacle on every page. If things go well, this Pestilence will find its way into your hands and you'll never look at medieval times the same way. Recommended. Read Full Review

    A very disturbing reintroduction to the world of "Pestilence" shows that 'A Story of Satan' is definitely on the right track. Read Full Review

    The idea of a more forceful event coming into play with what the creator of the black plague has in mind is chilling considering the scale of what happened before. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 15, 2018

    Pestilence: A Story of Satan #1 is a solidly entertaining read. Satan himself is a little too much, but the overall story is enjoyable. Plus, Fiat Lux is a likable bunch, and Okunevs artwork is solid. As such, I can recommend this one. Check it out on May 30th. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - by Zack Quaintance May 31, 2018

    I recommended this book for fans of both alternate takes on history and of horror stories co-mingled with theology, and I suspect it's also well worth a look for fans of the zombie genre. Pestilence: A Story of Satan #1 is an uncouth variation of standard zombie tropes made more interesting by its continued secret history premise. Read Full Review
