Summary

"Alex de Campi's scarily believable premisecombines with Carla Speed McNeil's unbelievably beautiful art for a thrillerwith its brake line cut." - Brian K.Vaughan

It was just a trip beforecollege. Build schools in a Central American village; get to know some of theother freshmen. But after tragedy strikes, a handful of once-privileged US teensmust find their way home in a cruel landscape that at best doesn't like them,and at worst, actively wants to kill them. And then, of course, there are thesecrets the kids are keeping from each other.

From third-grade spelling bee champAlex de Campi ( Archie vs Predator , Grindhouse ) and Eisner/LA TimesBook Award winner Carla Speed McNeil ( Finder ) comes a highly episodicthriller of teenagers in peril.

"Two of myfavourite creators teamed up and, once more, showing me why they're two of myfavourite creators. No Mercy manages to push a good chunk of 21st centurylife inside a single bus, and then throws it off the cliff. This is what dramais all about." - Kieron Gillen

Publisher's Weekly Review

Seasoned creators De Campi (Grindhouse) and McNeil (Finder) deliver a bleak and dark-humored take on teens thrust into a war of survival, à la Lord of the Flies or Battle Royale. The title of the series accurately sums up the pacing, kicking off with a school bus veering off the side of a cliff in the middle of the desert-and then things really start going literally and figuratively downhill. Acclaimed artist McNeil seems to have a downright gleeful time depicting the series of extremely unfortunate events that befall the privileged American high schoolers as they battle the elements, a pack of ravenous coyotes, and-probably worst of all-each other. De Campi's story isn't just brutal, it's virtually non-stop, with a new bit of extreme violence behind every turn of the page. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
