Now, with the death of his father, he s left to fend for himself… until he meets a hulking drifter named Jepperd, who promises to help him. In this second volume, Lemire explores the heartbreaking story of Jeppard and how he went from devoted husband to ruthless mercenary.
Meanwhile, Gus is captive with other hybrid creatures in a camp where he meets a scientist studying the plague that s wiped out so much of the world.
