Christos Gage (Avengers Academy, X-Men: Legacy, Authority: Prime) created a visceral world where law enforcement turns to super cops to subdue the new breed of street evil. But when one cop crosses the line and begins hunting and killing criminals in secret, he becomes worse than those he brought to ultimate justice. Absolution takes fans on an insane roller-coaster ride that ends in a public hero's downfall and the uprising of a violent judge, jury, and executioner. Absolution: The Beginning reprints the first two issues (#0-1) of this classic series and provides a sneak peek preview at this summer's highly anticipated sequel, Absolution: Rubicon! Perfect for fans of the Punisher and Authority - Absolution will show you what happens when a superhero is pushed beyond the boundaries of sanity and decides to push back.
