What would you do with superpowers – and six months to live?
That’s the dilemma facing three people who’ve contracted the G+ Virus, an infectious agent that gives you incredible superpowers – before killing you! What will struggling graphic designer Verity, failing indie guitarist Weasel and roguish media personality Monty do in the time that remains? Fade away – or go out in a blaze of glory? And if they choose to kick back… will there be anything left of the world when they’re through?
From the streets of London to the North Atlantic, from intimate betrayals to the death of thousands, from muses lost and futures thrown away to the fall of society – Death Sentence is the jaw-dropping next step in superpowered storytelling!
The collection comes with 26-pages of exclusive commentary by the creators.
