"FAMILY," Part One

In a dystopian near-future, government is a quaint concept, resources are coveted, and possession is 100% of the law.

Lazarus is one tough cookie 0

The world of comics has been missing the wonderfully edgy creations of writer Greg Rucka since his final five issue wrap-up of Punisher: War Zone.
