Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this eighth volume of the critically-acclaimed new series from the Eisner-nominated creative team, Mike Carey and Peter Gross, Tommy ventures into the land of the dead to find and rescue Lizzie. But the journey through Hades pits Tommy against all kinds of enemies of undead. But none of these encounters prepare him for his meeting with the king — or for the responsibilities he has to take on for some very familiar damned souls.

About the Author

Writer Mike Carey, best known for his work on Vertigo's Lucifer and Hellblazer, has made his mark in comics. Born in Liverpool, England, Carey worked as a teacher for fifteen years before gaining regular work writing for several independent companies. In 1999 he wrote the Sandman spinoff miniseries Sandman Presents: Lucifer. This led to the Lucifer solo title which earned him a nomination for the 2001 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards - Best Writer. The Fourth Rail said of his work, "Carey gives the characters in all of the stories believable motivations and characterization." His additional Vertigo projects have included Faker and Crossing Midnight. In 2007, he helped DC launch the Minx line of graphic novels for teen girls with the Regifters. Beyond DC, Carey was also recognized for his work on Marvel's X-Men titles. He makes his home in London with his wife, Lin, and his children, Davey, Ben and Louise.
