A brand-new ongoing series from the acclaimed bestselling creative team of Old Man Logan and Green Arrow! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city's trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake.

BLOODSHOT SALVATION #7 | Picked by Pat & Josh

(W) Jeff Lemire (A/CA) Jeff Lemire

Master storyteller Jeff Lemire takes the helm for the year's most terrifying, most memorable special issue - told entirely in PITCH BLACK DARKNESS!

Deployed into the demonic realm called Deadside in search of a cure for his ailing infant daughter, Bloodshot has lost the one sense he needs most to navigate the land of the dead: his sight. Blinded with only his four-legged ally, Bloodhound, to aid him, Ray Garrison must fight onward as one man against the darkness - even as he is beset from all sides by a horde of inhuman entities that crave only death, suffering, and slaughter...

Told in total darkness from Bloodshot's point of view, "THE BOOK OF THE DEAD" enters uncharted territory with a seminal experiment in storytelling written and staged by Eisner Award-winning visionary Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer, Animal Man)!
