Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Warren Ellis' brilliant, six-issue crime opus, Scars, with the stunning art of Jacen Burrows, is available in this deluxe trade paperback with a brand-new cover design! How much of a monster do you have to become to hunt monsters? John Cain has been working Homicide long enough to get hard to pretty much anything; even wrenching personal loss. But everyone has a limit, and today it's gotten too much to bear. Today, he gets assigned something that finally breaks through his defenses - a child killing that hits horribly close to home. Until today, he's been a good cop, a cop who goes by procedure because it's the best way to ensure that scum go to prison. Now, he makes the parents of the victim a chilling promise: he will find the killer using any means necessary. And the killer will not get away with it - no matter what it takes!

Synopsis:

A police detective promises the parents of a butchered child that he will do anything to bring the killer to justice… even at the cost of becoming a monster himself.

How much of a monster do you have to become to hunt monsters? Detective John Cain is a hard man. He's been working homicides long enough that he can withstand almost anything, even wrenching personal loss. But everyone has a limit, as he discovers when assigned to the investigation of a child killing. It's not enough to be a good cop, to follow the procedure and ensure that scum go to prison. To honor the chilling promise he gave to the dead child's parents — to find the killer using any means necessary — Cain will have to cross lines and do whatever it takes to bring bloody justice to the killer.
