THE CREEP #0

John Arcudi (W), Jonathan Case (A), and Frank Miller (Cover)

A young boy puts a gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger. The police don’t care. Not about his death or the death of his best friend two months earlier. The dead boy’s mom seeks help from an old flame that’s employed as a detective. What she doesn’t know is that he suffers from acromegaly—a physical deformity resulting in brutish facial features at mid-life. Will his freakish appearance get in the way of solving the case?

• Cover by Frank Miller!

• From the artist of The Green River Killer and the writer of B.P.R.D.!

“A beautiful book and, for my money, no one in comics writes better stories about human beings than John Arcudi.”—Mike Mignola

While the income may get her closer to paying off pesky student loans, the demony population is closer to her than ever, thanks to her first client. Buffy, under the tutelage of a disgruntled and heartbroken Kennedy, has her work cut out for her and is forced to call on the honorable Eldre Koh for help, culminating in a little demon-on-demon violence.
