On the run from The Stronghold, Grey and Claire encounter an apostate agent who, like Claire, defected from the organization long ago. But what he knows about both lovers' pasts may point to a fate more terrible than the certain death they flee.

Phil Hester (The Coffin, Deathstroke, The Darkness, SHIPWRECK) and Ryan Kelly (The Wicked & The Divine, Lucifer, Saucer Country) weave a tale of cosmic horror, high-adventure and tragic romance unlike anything else in comics.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Jun 5, 2019

    Stronghold is a perfect, modern take on the superhero genre. It raises the bar for storytelling in this genre and delivers high concepts and entertaining narrative in equal measure. Without a doubt one of the highlights of the year so far. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jul 2, 2019

    Michael and Claire are on the run, but get some time to consider their next moves. Sci-fi tales with questions of identity that spiral into cosmic calamity are always fun to read, but tough to find. Hester's tale ponders the big questions while keeping the heroes on the run. The visuals are well done, with Kelly, Cunniffe, and Bowland to be congratulated for keeping things real, with the unexpected popping up wonderfully. If you want different, you want Stronghold.
