“THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,” Conclusion
Villains have become heroes, the line between good and evil has been blurred beyond recognition, Philadelphia is ravaged by the war between Heaven and Hell, and our heroes are DEAD…
But from the ashes of despair comes the spark of hope that will set up a bold new direction for this series…and the KILLADELPHIA universe will never be the same. The sold-out, Eisner Award-nominated horror series reaches the end of this arc with even more shocking surprises! It all starts here!
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.
Also available in NOIR EDITION, featuring black-and-white line art interiors!
ComicBook.comIt is not an exaggeration that if you read just one comic this week or maybe even this year, it should be Killadelphia #30. The issue sees the eagerly anticipated crossover between the title and its spinoff Nita Hawes' Nightmare Blog as Nita comes to the city to be part of the fight, but the confrontation between her and James isn't the only reason this book is easily a masterpiece. It's the other story that runs along with this, a glimpse into Seesaw's life before, well, everything, in which he tells the story of someone close to him and how human cruelty and violence destroyed them. Killadelphia as a story broadly does an incredible job of balancing it's horror story with an authentic examination of the human experience, but this particular issue perhaps most soberly and beautifully addresses both the humanity and inhumanity of people. That's its brilliance: there's a lesson here and Barnes offers it up in a way that you can't help but receive it and never sacrifices story to do it.
Major SpoilersKilladelphia #30 is a fantastic ending to the arc. The previous issues set up the twist brilliantly, leaving us looking over the unexpected precipice of what happens next, because there is going to be a next and it looks marvelous. I can’t wait.
