All small towns have secrets. All small towns have ghosts. Blackcross, in America's Pacific Northwest, has more secrets than most... and it is being haunted by something impossible. Gary Preston has burned himself to death by the lake, but there's no body. Bob Stewart receives chemical burns from a mailbomb, but in the shape of a skull and crossbones. Marietta Chesler practices her trade as a fake psychic medium, but is visited by a masked spirit in red. Something is reaching out from the other side of the night, through the forest and mist of this remote town, to grasp at the hearts of a handful of people... and they may not discover why they're being hunted until it's much too late.
Forget what you know about Project Superpowers, as award-winning writer Warren Ellis and artist Colton Worley take readers on a sinister journey away from the brightly-clad heroes of the Golden Age, and into the shadows of Blackcross, a supernatural noir thriller of ordinary people stalked by an otherwordly killer.
