“THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,” Part Two

The sold-out, Eisner Award-nominated horror series continues! From RODNEY BARNES, the writer behind such hit shows as Marvel’s Runaways and STARZ’s American Gods, and JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER, the artist who redefined SPAWN. The war has begun! Vampire king President George Washington leads SeeSaw and his vampire army against Toussaint Louverture and his Haitian guardians. But with the strength of the National Guard against them as well, this might very well spell an extinction era for all vampires, including James Sangster! Also available in NOIR EDITION, featuring black-and-white line art interiors!

    Somehow, Killadelphia #26 might be the best of the series to date. The issue does two things. First, it continues to ramp up the road to war as Anansi starts assembling allies and second, it gives us Abigail’s story through her own words. The two pieces somewhat intersect by the end and while Abigail hasn’t exactly been the most sympathetic character in this series to now, there’s something humanizing about finally getting her story. That’s very much what this series does best: it sheds light on the struggles and inequities in history, the humanity of various elements of things and Abigail’s story—that of a woman in a time when being a woman had very sharp limits—is fascinating. Juxtaposed with the atrocities she’s committed in the series and the rest of the story in this series, the complicated and enthralling story of who we are as Americans—even set in this supernatural horror tale—just keeps getting better.

    Major Spoilers

    Killadelphia #26 is a book that transcends traditional horror, using it as a backdrop for a deep dive into some philosophical conundrums. Although the concepts may be big, we see them through the minds and actions of individuals, so there are personal connections that hold everything together.
