This latest collection of HITMAN tales, all collected for the first time from issues #37-50, begins when Tommy Monaghan heads to Ireland to learn the dark truth about his past – and why his parents abandoned him. Plus: A plague of the undead, a showdown with Ringo Chen and more!
No Man's Land.
In the aftermath of a devastating earthquake, Gotham City has been abandoned by its government and left to decay into anarchy. This total breakdown of law and order has been rough on professional hitmen like Tommy Monaghan --- most of the population has pulled up stakes and the remaining dregs are killing each other for free.
Still, any town that boast native sons like Killer Croc and the Joker will always be able to provide some suitably psychotic adversaries for Tommy and his drinking buddies --- including, in this case, vampires, dinosaurs and surly zoo animals. The real threat, however, comes courtesy of the paid killer's traditional occupational hazards: anger and revenge, and the vicious cycle of violence that they fuel --- a cycle that's about to cut Tommy deeper than ever before.
Collecting issues 37-50 of writer Garth Ennis and artist John McCrea's straight-shooting series, HITMAN: FOR TOMORROW also includes a special pin-up section featuring art from Frank Quitely, Doug Mahnke, Glenn Fabry, Steve Dillon and Garry Leach.
