Mega-City One, 2140 AD. Home to 100 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America.

THE ORDER // THE NEW WORLD
by Kek-W (w) John Burns (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Throughout history, mankind has been under threat of extermination by the Wyrms, creatures from another plane that systematically break into our reality.

These ‘mutants’ became a victimised underclass, forced into ghettos, with bounty hunting the only job open to them. One such Search/Destroy agent is ruthless vampire DURHAM RED, who requires blood to survive. Out of work and needing cash, she’s been hired by dying mutant ganglord Monkey Harris to find his mother...
