Dark Engine Volume 1: The Art of Destruction
"If you're a fan of Conan and Red Sonja and
wish they'd appear in a Lovecraftian tale, this is probably the book for
you." -- KirkusThe world
is cracked and in ruin. The air is full of dead men's ashes, fallen colossi
smother the earth with their decayed husks, and infectious monsters roam freely.
In their desperation, a group of alchemists have created a killer named Sym from
obscene magic, outfitting her with an engine that will allow her to travel back
in time to stop whatever it was that made their world so. But the alchemists
don't realize that the engine is sentient, that their unstoppable killer is
powered by the seed of their destruction.
Newcomers Ryan Burton and John Bivens
present the opening arc to what industry veteran JH Williams III (Sandman:
Overture, Batwoman, Promethea) describes as "an otherworldly
horrific poetic movement that is immediately immersive."
