Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Garth Ennis, the irreverent creator of PREACHER, comes a tale of a reluctant Anti-Christ trying to avert his apocalyptic destiny, stick it to his old man (Satan), and maintain his relationship his beloved Maggie.

Danny Wormwood is the Anti-Christ, his father is Satan, and his demonic powers help him fit right into New York's slimy television entertainment business. Danny's best friend is Jesus, the savior of humanity whose brain damage — a tragedy of mob violence — keeps him from performing miracles these days. There's a scheduled Armageddon coming right up, and an insane Pope out for Danny's blood. Can this reluctant Anti-Christ avert the apocalypse, withstand the forces of Heaven and Hell aligned against him, and keep his girlfriend blissfully in the dark from his true heritage? A tale of Armageddon and the Anti-Christ from Garth Ennis, the creator of PREACHER!

Synopsis:

All six issues of Garth Ennis critically-acclaimed religious epic are collected here for the first time! Wormwood is the anti-Christ, no way around it, his dad is Satan and his demonic powers help him fit right into New York. His best friend is Jesus, who is a black, mentally-challenged, man that just isn't performing many miracles these days. The pesky Armageddon is coming right up, and it doesn't look like Pope Jacko is going to be any help in stopping it. Ennis drags the whole world into the gutter with his trademark razor-sharp dialogue, biting wit, and the stunning art of Jacen Burrows, all in full-color. Available in softcover or a special hardcover edition limited to just 750 copies.

About the Author

Garth Ennis, a critically acclaimed writer from Northern Ireland, has been working in the comic book industry for over 20 years, and is most easily recognized as the creator of Preacher, and long-time contributor to Marvel's Punisher. Perhaps his greatest success in recent years has been CROSSED, a horror survival series published by Avatar Press, in which the world has been overrun by sadistic homicidal maniacs. The CROSSED property has been optioned for film by Kevin Spacey’ s Trigger Street Productions. Other Avatar publications by Ennis include STREETS OF GLORY, CHRONICLES OF WORMWOOD, and 303.
