Created by Weston Cage and acclaimed actor Nicolas Cage (Ghost Rider; The Rock; National Treasure)
Gabriel Moore is no ordinary child. He’s not really living… but he’s not really dead, either. In 1860, the plantation of Mason Moore – a known Unionist sympathizer – is burned to the ground by secessionists. In the battle, Moore’s illegitimate son is killed, but as he gasps his last breaths, a voodoo bokor places a spell upon the dying boy. Flash forward to 2005: four months after the worst natural disaster in its history, New Orleans is gripped by fear as young girls start to disappear from its streets while a brutal gang war rages. When Detective Robert Julien starts to investigate, he finds that there’s something else out in the shadows – something that’s neither dead nor alive, an enigma. But is it an ally or the darkest nightmare of all?
Story by Weston Cage and Nicolas Cage; Written by Mike Carey (Untouchable, Lucifer, Unwritten) with artwork by acclaimed artist, Dean Hyrapiet (Buddha, Virulents, Dead Soldier).

“This is storytelling that draws you in with ghouls that are involving to watch and gets under your skin with monstrosities that aren’t so easily escaped. (4.5 out of 5 stars)”

“It’s got an anti-hero who doesn’t mind getting a bit bloody while trying to avenge his family. (Mike) Carey is starting to climb my chart of competent writers, and I fully expect more reading from this title. (4.5 out of 5 Stars)”
