Beyond the edge of creation lies the Black Stair. And beyond it, amid the void, he waits. Mol Uhltep, the Last God. This is the tale of those who claimed to slay him, and the world they doomed with their lies.
As the horrifying forces of the Last God descend upon the city of Tyrgolad, our intrepid heroes-Queen Cyanthe, Eyvindr, and Veikko al Mun-must either defend or escape their crumbling stronghold and contend with dark legacy left behind in King Tyr's wake. But with every second, the undead army of the Last God adds more bodies to their numbers. None are safe.
In the past, we witness the tragic and violent beginnings of the first more

    Philip Kennedy Johnson has written one hell of an original book. This is fantasy at it's best. The art makes the whole package complete and completely elevates the story. This is an underrated gem. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Nov 27, 2019

    The Last God#2 shows great promise and has some stunning visuals to back it up. Ultimately though the follow up to the premier issue delivered an unclear message as it attempts to tackle too many things at once. Read Full Review
