Abstract:
"They were the product of an ultra-secret government program, code-named Black Forest. Dozens of children, all displaying the classic signs of psychopathy, were kidnapped and brutally shaped into living weapons--perfect, remorseless agents of chaos, ready and willing to bring mayhem to the enemies of the United States. The masterminds behind Black Forest thought they had solved America's security problems for good. Then their creations stopped following orders, and the program--along with everyone in it--was terminated with extreme prejudice. But some of the Forest's monsters escaped the purge. Now, 25 years later, those prodigal killers have returned--and their home country is their new target. Led by a man called Cain, this unstoppable cohort is cutting a bloody swath through New York City. The one person who can stop them is a man called Abel--the only Black Forest operative who ever escaped from the program. Are these modern-day sons of Adam doomed to repeat the sins of their biblical namesakes? Or can they finally break the cycle of violence for which they've trained their entire lives? One way or another, the stage is set for a showdown darker and deadlier than any black-ops mission the world has ever seen."-- Provided by publisher.

Summary

Summary

Twenty-five years ago, a secret government organization kidnapped children and trained them to be agents of chaos, designed to foment unrest and execute enemies of the state around the world. When these cold and unfeeling creations proved too difficult to control, the powers that be exterminated their kill squad with extreme prejudice. Too bad it didn't work.a

Now a rogue band of the worst monsters the world has ever known is cutting a swath of terror across the United States, threatening not just to disrupt the peace but to expose secrets their handlers never wanted to come to light. The only way to stop them is to call back the only man who ever walked away from them. His code name is Abel, and he's not afraid of getting his hands bloody.a

Vertigo's all new graphic novel SAVAGE THINGS thrills as an action-packed espionage-horror miniseries from writer Justin Jordan (THE LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE) and artist Ibrahim Moustafa (HIGH CRIMES).
