Art by r.m. Guera
Cain has been alive over 1600 years and is forced to walk the Earth. He's not a real big fan of God and he curses him every chance he gets.
Taken from the biblical tale, Jason Aaron is telling the story of Cain and his struggle of being forced to live on Earth as the inventor of murder. Cain must deal with barbarians and other monsters in this tale. To say this book is violent would be the 2015 winner of "Understatement of the Year." Page upon page of killing and maiming. It's truly an incredible find.
r.m. Guera is able to tell Jason Aaron's story from the visual aspect extraordinarily well. Blood, guts and other stuff that comes out of the body are prominently on display panel after panel after panel.
The first book is called "Before the Flood" so I'm sure you can guess who else we might be running into with this first issue.
If you want to get started on a series from the start, run to your closest comic book shop and pick up issue one of "The Goddamned" right away!
