“It’s so thrilling to see Death Sentence become such a massive success – and so hot on the heels of the issue one sell-out,’ said Nick Landau, Titan publisher. “Many thanks from everyone here at Titan Comics to all the readers, reviewers and retailers that have gotten behind this great book.”
“I’m really excited to see Death Sentence doing so well,’ said Mike Dowling, series artist. “A big thanks to all our readers!’
This explosive new series poses the question – what would you do with superpowers – and six months to live? That’s the dilemma facing three people who’ve contracted the G+ Virus, through unprotected sex.
