A murder at a wedding reveals a fifty year-old secret. At great cost, a man with a dying wife is given the opportunity to save her. A lost tribe is reborn in another time. Seemingly disparate events that force relics from the Greatest Generation to come together for one last hurrah.

Brought to you by award-winning writer JONATHAN HICKMAN and fan-favorite artist RYAN BODENHEIM, THE DYING AND THE DEAD is high adventure meets end-of-life care.

It's Indiana Jones for Old People. There are no fedoras, only bedpans.

The "I'm Dying... to read more!" 0

Jonathan Hickman has been all over my comics radar these last few days- from laying my eyes upon the work of art that is his variant cover to Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham’s “Nameless” from Image, to discussing his work on Marvel’s “Infinity” event, to now- the first issue of his new series at Image: The Dying and the Dead.This book really FEELS like a Jonathan Hickman book. I don’t know if it is just the editorial staff he works with who have this so...
