WHY WE LOVE IT: We love that luminary writer Paul Jenkins (Wolverine: Origin) and world-renowned artist Humberto Ramos (The Amazing Spider-Man) teamed up to unfold a sophisticated story of religion, murder, and mystery. It kept us guessing until the end!
WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT: No superheroes, no outlandish fight scenes. Just the beautiful artistry of Humberto Ramos as it shines in this tale devoid of any superheroes but full of the supernatural , as told by Paul Jenkins. Fans of Constantine and the BBC s Sherlock will not want to miss this tale of corruption through the eyes of an outsider.
WHAT IT S ABOUT: London detective Charlie Northern is a devout atheist, but when the pope s successor dies suddenly and mysteriously, he has no choice but to step foot back in church. Sidestepping nefarious local politics and a crooked police force, Northern comes face to face with hundreds of years of conspiracy and corruption in the seat of the world s wealthiest religion. Some signs point to the supernatural, but a good detective knows the sins of man when he sees them. Collects the complete miniseries (issues #1-6).
