Killadelphia Deluxe Edition, Book One (Hardback)Rodney Barnes (author)
From RODNEY BARNES, the breakout star comics scribe and television writer behind HBO's Winning Time, and the show-stopping artist who redefined SPAWN for a new generation, JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER.
When a small-town beat cop comes home to bury his murdered father, revered Philadelphia detective James Sangster Sr., he stumbles into a mystery that will lead him down a path of horrors and shake his beliefs to their core. The city that was once the symbol of liberty and freedom has fallen prey to corruption, poverty, unemployment, brutality...and vampires.
Now, it's up to Jimmy and an unexpected companion to stop long-thought-dead President of the United States John Adams from building an undead army and staging a bloody new American revolution.
There's a reason they say you can't go home again. Welcome to Killadelphia.
